Prajnanam Brahma … Self Luminous is That

This topic shall discuss the Vedic Mahavakya of  प्रज्ञानम् ब्रह्मप्रज्ञानम् ब्रह्म can be written in English language as “Prajnanam Brahma”, that translates to “Self luminous is That” … “That” as is written here, means, the Supreme being, who itself is as the aspirants innermost essence (or Atman) …

 

प्रज्ञानम् ब्रह्म

Prajnanam Brahm

Self luminous is That

Self luminous is Brahman

Brahman is self luminous being

 

 

This is the essence of Rigveda whose seat in this world (i.e. Aamnaya Peetha which in simple words, is also addressed as Vyasa Peetha) is the eastern Vedic monastery of Govardhan Math, Jagannath Puri Peetha …

 

BB-1 … Meaning of Mahavakya of Prajnanam Brahma …

Prajnanam Brahma means …

  • Self Luminous Is That …
  • Parabrahman or Absolute is Self luminous …
  • Self Luminous IT is …
  • Knowledge (consciousness) is Absolute … Absolute is Knowledge (consciousness) …
  • Swa Prakash is Brahman
  • Swayam Prakash is Brahman …
  • Self luminous is Brahman … Brahman is self luminous …

 

In above statements …

  • That which is told as “IT”, is the Atman, which itself is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “That”, is also the Atman, which itself is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “Self Luminous”, is the Atman which also is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “Self Luminous”, is that which illumines all, but keeps itself concealed (or veiled) in the background … Thus in reality everything is illumined (i.e. everything becomes knowledgeable, conscious and active) through its own pristine-luminosity, but IT by ITself, stays hidden within all as IT by ITself is the finally detached pervader and enveloper of allness and her each part and due to being detached, IT ITself is the supreme hermit (Param Sanyasi) who is addressed as Brahman in Vedas and who itself is the common innermost essence or self of all (Atman) …

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

This is as “allness and her each part (i.e. Brahmand or microcosm 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 Swa Prakash Brahman, who also is the Self Luminous essence (Atman) of all …

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

 

BB-2 … प्रज्ञानम् ब्रह्म … Self Luminous is That … Self Luminous IT is …

With above as a base, we commence these discussions on Prajnanam Brahma …

One who is conscious self-knowledge of all states of macrocosm … And beyond …

One who illumines all by its own colorless and luminescent all-presence,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One who is Parampita, Parmeshvara and Paramdeva,

That who is Paramshakti, Paramgarbha and Paramprajna,

And that who is Paramchetan, Paramgyan and Paramakash,

Supreme Purusha (Absolute Being) IT is, Prakriti (Nature) IT’s eternal companion,

Yet is fully free of these two, as fully unseeded and detached IT remains,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

That who is uncaused from anything that is within allness,

And yet it is the primordially-original cause of all causes,

And yet is the causeless one who is free of all causes, as far as IT’s own origin is,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

That which is un-effected from anything that is within allness,

And that which is the eternal-endless non-effected finality, beyond allness,

And thus is the effectless one as it is free of all effects and causes,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

That in whom realizer, realization and realized become one,

And That which is the base of knowing above,

And yet is perfectly-detached from all of above,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One that is the timeless-primordial reason for all light of knowledge,

That who is supreme knowledge which is present inside all knowledge systems,

And yet IT stays as the detached essence of all knowledge and systems,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One that is beyond “all that-ever-is and that who is-not”,

And yet is also within all that is and is not,

And yet stays free of all-these,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One that is not the experiencer,

Nor is IT the experienced or experience,

But is the underlying essence, the unchanging witness of all above,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

That who is not the doer, done or deeds,

Yet everything get done by its presence within everything and everyone,

And yet IT stays fully detached from all,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One that is not apparent from grosser senses,

That which definitely is apparent, from subtlety within,

And yet is the unknown within IT’s own supreme-reality,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

One who illumines all knowledge, systems and their authentic texts,

That from which all knowledge originates, rests in and finally returns back to,

And yet IT remains as the realizable yet not fully-describable,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

 

No knowledge is higher than IT, as IT ITself is the pristine knowledge,

No knowledge is prior to IT, as IT ITself is the primordial-timeless knowledge,

And IT ITself is final knowledge that is to be ever known by any aspirant,

Know That to be Parambrahma, Your Self Luminous soul … Prajnanam Brahma …

Irrespective of what may be apparent to any aspirant of now or ever, within the current transmigrated incarnation I remain as a little student of the Absolute.
