Anadi: Upanishads: An Incomplete Revelation

Anadi: Revelatory Excerpts from the Upanishads

Hier drei kleine Auszüge, die zeigen, was die Verfasser der Upanishaden bereits wussten und was später größtenteils verloren gegangen ist und dann zu Hinduismus, Buddhismus, Advaita und Neo-Advaita, etc. mutierte:

Katha-Upanishad: “Some have never heard of the Self, some have heard but cannot find Him. Who finds Him is a world’s wonder, who expounds Him is a world’s wonder, who inherits Him from his Master is a world’s wonder.

Brihadaranyaka-Upanishad: “In the beginning all things were Self, in the shape of personality. He looked round, saw nothing but Him-self. The first thing he said was, ‘It is I.’ Hence ‘I’ be- came His name. Therefore even now if you ask a man who he is, he first says, ‘It is I’, and gives what other name he has. He is the eldest of all. Because he destroyed all evil, he is called the first Person. He who knows this, destroys all evil, takes the first rank.

Brihadaranyaka-Upanishad: “Invisible, He sees; inaudible, He hears; unthinkable, He thinks; unknowable, He knows. None other can see, hear, think, know. He is your own Self, the immortal; the controller; nothing else matters.
