My journey into finding myself began with the reading and understanding of the statement “Aham Brahmasmi”.
I came to understand that it is one of the four mahavakya of the Vedic literature. It talks of the fact that knowledge of self-realisation i.e., the realisation from human to a soul, from Atma to Atmanand to paramatma has been there since eternity.
Aham Bramhasmi translates to I am the Bramhan. Here “I am or aham” doesn’t carry any ego. The bramhan does not belong to any caste or creed. It’s about the creator who is eternal, for me it’s an eternal love story of the soul with itself.
The creator is not Shiv or Bramha or Vishnu neither Sati Parvati or Durga nor Allah or Jesus. The creator is formless shapeless omnipresent and omni potent it is Sat Chit Anand meaning The Pure Bliss…
It is an eternal affair of The should with itself knowing its limitless true form, understanding, absorbing and manifesting itself in the form of creator.
It is the journey which starts from one point and in the end it comes to the same point from where it started.
Aham Brahmasmi speaks about finding the God particle or in other terms The Energy in oneself and recognising and resonating with it.
The Mahavakyas are,
1. Prajnanam Bramha – Definition of Bramha and acknowledging it presence, Tatbodha
2. Aham Brahmasmi – Knowing and experiencing it where the Sakshi bhav comes in to the play.
3. Tat Tvam Asi – You are the Brahman where there is recognition of oneself as a part of the whole
4. Ayam Atma Bramha – It’s the ultimate sakshatkar of the Bramhan which we have been knowing as the Bramha Gyan which nobody can give it to anybody through literal means. It is only be experienced by one.
For me there is one more Mahavakya which is “Khalvidam Bramha” which means Everything which is inside out which is in existence has existed once upon a time and which will exist in future or in parallel realities of the Universe is Bramhan or the creator.
When we resonate with the same frequency of creator the maya in other words the lock of ignorance gets unlocked.
What we experience is pure bliss. But to resonate one must believe that He is The Bramhan, He is the creator He is the Bliss.
Aham Bramhasmi is all about knowing the real SELF: the self with out any ego; the self without any body, flesh or any religion. It is beyond the definition or the existence which words can describe.
Many times we see the creator as a different entity than us. It is like seeing a sugar particle as a different entity than a cube of a sugar. Both have the same sweetness and the same molecular structure. The difference lies in the size that’s all. When one knows and understands this simple truth, the size doesn’t matter.
We see universe and its vastness differently. But it is in the knowing that we are the part of the vast universe and the vastness lies within us where pure bliss lies. It is about feeling the pure bliss and unending happiness. It is about becoming the Sat Chit Anand. It is about recognising and respecting the immortality of the soul.
Aham Bramhasmi is all about knowing that we are the limitless. We are the creator of the our own reality. It is about seeing the creator in oneself becoming one with it and in others. There is no duality then we all are one. Simply we all are made of the same chemical composition and formulae.
To experience this keep chanting Aham Bramhasmi not on your tongue but within you, let it be one with rhythm of the heart. One will be transformed. They will be connected to the divine at super conscious level. THEN ONE WILL BE able to see the beautiful vastness and the darkness within not as an empty body but experiencing the divine light.
One’s true potential doesn’t lie in becoming the CEO of a multi billionaire company or best model neither any political mammoth figure but to become who he or she really is!
Throughout life people struggle to stand out, to create an identity in the way the world perceives. But AHAM BRAMHASMI is all about losing the SELF & merging with vastness of the universe and finding it inside as our true identity. It is about merging in the universal ocean as a drop and become the drop which holds the same ocean within itself.
It is to become the one among the crowd and finding the world within one.
We are a part of the creator and the universe and it is within us. Just like an old proverb in Marathi JE PINDI THE BRAMHANDI which means what is inside the very core of the being is the same in the universe and vice versa.
The beauty of this alchemy is we are our own Alchemist.
