brahman

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on god, shiva, vishnu, brahma, lakshmi, king, brahman, pure consciousness, worship, unidivided, without form, and formless

Do you know who 'god' is? God is not Vishnu or Shiva or Brahma; not the wind, the sun nor the moon; nor the brahmana or the king; not I or you; not Lakshmi or the  mind. God is without form and undivided (not in the objects); that splendor which is not made and which has neither beginning nor end is known as god, or Lord Shiva, which is pure consciousness. That alone is fit to be worshipped; that alone is all.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on one, many, rama candles, kindle, flame, and brahman

The one never became many, O Rama. When many candles are kindled from another, it is the same flame that burns in all candles; even so, the one Brahman appears to be many.

A Quote by Chandogya Upanishad on self, soul, conciousness, peace, light, love, lotus, brahman, heart, free, true, truth, and heaven

The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart.
Those who see themselves in all the creatures go
day by day into the world of Brahman hidden
in the heart. Established in peace, they rise
above body consciousness to the supreme
light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear, this
Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the
mortal and the immortal, he binds both worlds
together. Those who know this live day after
day in heaven in this very life.

A Quote by Brihadaranyaka Upanishad on oneness, joy, unity, another, separeteness, hindu, and brahman

Where there is separateness, one sees
another, smells another, tastes another,
speaks to another, hears another, touches
another, thinks of another, knows another.
But where there is unity, one without a
second, that is the world of Brahman. This is
the supreme goal of life, the supreme treasure,
the supreme joy. Those who do not seek this
Supreme goal live on but a fraction of this joy.

A Quote by shankara on adi shankaracharya, cosciousness, nondual, i am, brahman, and atman

"[I am] the nature of Pure Consciousness. I am always the same to beings, one alone; [I am] the highest Brahman, which, like the sky, is all-pervading, imperishable, auspicious, uninterrupted, undivided and devoid of action. I do not belong to anything since I am free from attachment. [I am] the highest Brahman... ever-shining, unborn, one alone, imperishable, stainless, all-pervading, and nondual-That am I, and I am forever released." - Shankara, The Upadesasahasri
