The Sun, the Flower, the sandal tree, the fruit-bearing trees, the Sacred Bull, the Ganga - all teach practical Vedanta to the world.

They live to serve humanity in a disinterested spirit.

Sun radiates its light alike over a cottage of a peasant and a palace of a king .

The flowers waft their fragrance to all without expecting anything.

The cool, refreshing waters of the Ganga are drunk by all.

The sandal tree wafts its aroma even to the man who cuts it with an axe.

The fruit bearing trees behave in the same manner.

They please the gardener who nourished them and the man who cuts them.

Cows live to nourish babies, the children, the invalids and the convalescents.

Vedanta is very practical.

It does not preach an impossible ideal.

But you must have perfect faith in yourself first.

There is neither birth nor death for your consciousness.

You are your Eternal Soul.

The World is an Illusion

Zitterbewegung suggests deep connections between zero-point energy, mass-energy relationship of matter and the quantum properties of particles.

māyā deludes you into accepting hyperreality.

You foolishly identify your Eternal Soul with the perishable material body.

You foolishly imagine that you are subject to the cycle of birth and death.

Free yourself from the clutches of māyā !

Sri Sankara, the great proponent of Advaita philosophy has said that the world is an illusion and the goal of man is to find the noumenon behind the Veil of Cognitive Blindness.

Plato and many other Western philosophers noted the world is mere appearance and the noumenon is the only solid Reality.

The oversoul of the Western philosophers is the Brahma of the Upanishads.

Supreme Soul, Paramatman, supports each individual soul - Ātman.

The 'Oversoul' is the 'substance' of Spinoza or the 'thing in itself' of Kant.

Essence of Vedanta slowly seeps into the mind of Western philosophy.

Accept the existence of an Eternal Soul distinct from body and mind.

Can 'confident pluralism' bridge our deep divides?

600 BC To liberate self, Mahavira taught the necessity of right faith (samyak-darshana), correct knowledge (samyak-gyana), and right conduct (samyak-charitra').

Aneka-ntava-da, pluralism, is the most important doctrine of Jainism.

Aneka-ntava-da suggests truth and reality are perceived differently from different points of view and no single point of view is the complete truth.

Jains share a conviction with the Founders of the United States that diverse religious, ethnic, racial, and political groups can thrive in a single culture

Jains compare attempts to explain absolute truth with adhgajanya-yah, or the maxim of the "blind men and an elephant".

In this parable, one man felt the trunk of an elephant, another the tusks, another the ears, another the tail.

All the blind men believed they understood the true entire appearance of the elephant, and yet, due to their narrow perspectives they only understood a small portion of the elephant.

This principle is more formally stated by observing that objects are infinite in their qualities and modes of existence, so they cannot be completely grasped in all aspects and manifestations by finite human perception.

The historic origins of aneka-ntava-da can be traced back to the teachings of Ma-havi-ra, the 24th Jain Tirthankara.

The dialectical concepts of sya-dva-da (conditioned viewpoints) and
nayava-da (partial viewpoints) arose from aneka-ntava-da, providing it with more detailed logical structure and expression.

The Sanskrit compound an-eka-anta-va-da literally means "doctrine of non-exclusivity"; it is translated as " skepticism" or "non-absolutism".

An-eka-nta "uncertainty, non-exclusivity" is the opposite of eka-nta (eka+anta) "exclusiveness, absoluteness, necessity".

Aneka-ntava-da encourages its adherents to consider the views and beliefs of their rivals and opposing parties.

Proponents of anekantva-da apply this principle to religion and philosophy, reminding themselves that any religion and philosophy, even Jainism, that clings too dogmatically to its own tenets, is committing error based on its limited point of view.

Veda Vyasa

Mysteries of the Sacred Universe

Hindus traditionally hold Vyasa split the primordial single Veda into four.

Hence, Veda Vyasa, or "Splitter of the Vedas," the splitting being a feat that allowed people to understand the divine knowledge of the Veda.

The word vyasa means split, differentiate, or describe.

Vyasa appears for the first time as the compiler of, and an important character, in the Maha-bha-rata.

It is said that, he was the expansion of Lord Vishnu Himself who came in Dwaparyuga to make all the Vedic knowledge available in written form which was only available in Sound form at that time.

Vyasa's Jaya, the core of Mahaābhaārata is structured in the form of a dialogue between Dhritarashtra and Sanjaya, his advisor and chariot driver.

Saiva Siddhanta Philosophy

The central doctrine of the Saiva Siddhanta philosophy is that Shiva is the noumenon, and that Jiva, the unique individual Soul or Divine Spark of Life, is of the same essence as Shiva, but not identical.

Shiva, eternal consciousness, contains the seeds of eternal bliss in gnosis.

Lord Shiva is engaged in freeing Jiva from the thraldom of matter.

Shiva takes the form of an Avatar out of intense compassion for mankind.

Shiva, Lord of Compassion, graces us as source, companion and guide.

Shiva wishes that all should know Him and attain the blissful Siva-Pada.

Lord Shiva watches and guides the activities of each individual soul.

Shiva liberates questioning souls from culturally imposed bondage.

Shiva is eternal, changeless, formless, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, beginningless, endless, self-existent, liberated, uncontainable and sovereign.

The Consciousness of Shiva pervades the Noumenon as Shakti.

Shakti is the essential Spirit of Shiva while Maya is the material result.

Noumenon of matter and souls forms the body of Shiva.

The Consciousness of Shiva is the first cause of Satyam.

Satyam, real and eternal, undergoes evolution for the benefit of Pasu (Souls).

The whole process of Creation is for the sake of the Salvation of Pasu.

Pasu are by nature eternal and all-knowing like Lord Shiva (Pati).

In blindness and error, Pasu believe they are finite, ignorant and temporary.

The Eternal Soul learns, by long experience, that Samsara is full of sensation and is transitory, and that Pasu can attain eternal bliss and immortality only by attaining Sivatva, by becoming one with the Spirit of Shiva.

The Eternal Soul, Pasu, develops Vairagya (dispassion), and Viveka (discrimination between real and unreal, permanent and impermanent).

The liberated soul does not lose its individuality.

Shivatva is the realization of an identity of essence in spite of differentiation.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
