Full meaning:

The letter of brahma is supreme (om). The ownself showing emotion that is the atma it is said. The living entity, the dwelling for the purpose of emotion inorder to perform from grief/dejection for adoration/respect. The science of action equal to that which is known. 


There you have it again, the scripture of mankind. What was once, is now that which is known to you. 


What does it say in Gita? 

Yes! There is nothing higher than Brahman. Brahman’s power manifested in everybody as the Jiva. The verse does not say that. There is no creative act in this verse, though aksaram could be understood that way. This is about the letter and the manifestation under Om, what makes atma, the emotion with which you feel possible, that shows one’s evolution equal to the science of action that is known. Take a look at the meaning I have for this.

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious. veena kodali
