Ayam Atma Brahma … This Is That

अयम् आत्मा ब्रह्म is a Vedic Mahavakya of Atharvaveda, which in English can be written means Ayam Atma Brahma, Ayam Atman Brahm and Ayam Atman Brahman … IT means This Is That, Atman is Brahm and Atman is Brahman or in other words, This (Atman) is Supreme (Brahman) …

 

अयम् आत्मा ब्रह्म

Ayam Atma Brahma … Ayam Atman Brahman

This Is That … This Atman Is Brahman … Atman is Brahman 

 

When spoken, this is as Ayam Atman Brahman, Ayam Atma Brahma, Ayam Atma Brahman, Ayam Atma Brahm and as AyamAtmaBrahm …

This is the essence of Atharvaveda, whose seat in this world (i.e. Aamnaya Peetha which in simple words, is also addressed as Vyasa Peetha) is northern Vedic monastery of Jyotir Math …

 

EE-1 … Meaning of Mahavakya of Ayam Atma Brahma … अयम् आत्मा ब्रह्म …

Ayam Atma Brahm (or Ayam Atman Brahman or Ayam Atma Brahman) means …

  • This Is That …
  • Atman Is Brahm
  • Atman is Brahman …
  • This Is IT …
  • This (Atman) is the That (Parambrahma or Brahman) …

 

In above statements …

  • “This” does not mean any individual … It means Innermost essence or Atman of all …
  • “IT”, is the Brahman (or the supreme omnipresent essence), who itself is the Atman (or in other words, the innermost essence) of all …
  • “That”, is Brahman, who itself is as the Atman of all …
  • Word “Supreme Being”, also means as Brahman (or Parabrahman), who is none other than the Atman of all …
  • That which is told as “Brahma” is the one who is the creator of allness, but IT keeps ITself concealed (or veiled) in the background … Thus in reality everything is created by IT, but IT by ITself stays hidden within all that IT creates … This is as IT only is as the finally detached pervader and enveloper of allness and her each part and due to being detached, IT ITself is the Supreme Witness (Param Sakshi), Supreme Hermit (Param Sanyasi) and Supreme Sage (Param Rishi) who is addressed as Parabrahman (ands also addressed as Brahman) in Vedas and who eventually is the common innermost essence or self of all (Atman) …

And the same statement is also applicable to the fact which is of an eternal partless-unity of macrocosm and each microcosm and where vice-versa of this statement is also true …

This is due to the fact that “allness and her each part (i.e. Brahmand or macrocosm and microcosm or Pinda)” is none other than a self-expression, self-manifestation and self-presence of the same attributeless infinite Absolute being (Nirgun Nirakaar Brahm or Swayam Prakash Brahman), who itself is That from which every originally originates, everything is proceeding to IT and IT is also where everything finally dissolves so as to be as IT ITself is, just like a drop of water becomes the ocean after dissolving into the ocean …

Parambrahma (as is stated in below discussions) is one of the alternate names that is utilized since timeless times, to address Brahman …
