Who are we?
Hindus themselves are confused. They don’t know what their dharma teaches. If only they knew what the glory of sanatana dharma is, nobody would EVER look at others. The depth, the scientific thoroughness, the perfection, –nowhere.
There are FOUR states or avasthas according to Sanatana dharma.
1. The PHYSICAL: This gross state we all know. It is made of Consciousness + five elements [earth, fire, air, water, space]. Here, there is variety, name and form, etc. This is your first covering. This is not YOU. One religion thinks only this is true. Demons [Rakshasas] concentrated only on this. Only physical enjoyment. Even after death.
2. THE SUBTLE: This subtle state is where your mind,memory, intellect, sense organs, organs of action, everything is located. What you call ghost, etc, are this subtle body. This also not YOU. This is made of Consciousness + five subtle elements like sound, touch, form, taste and smell. Christianity ends here. What they call Soul is only this subtle body. This subtle body is inside the gross body.
3. THE CAUSAL: This is the third State. This is the Cause, the Source, of everything else. So this is called ISHVARA. Ishvara is what they call “God”. Ishvara comes down as avatara. Ishvara is Shakti. Ishvara is inside the subtle body and also everywhere. Thus, we are all one essentially. Numerous paths of sanatana Dharma–vaishnavas, shaivas, shaktas, etc consider this to be the end, though they accept consciousness. So, this is your nature.
4. BRAHMAN or Atman OR SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS. This is the supreme Fourth. You ARE THIS. You are infinite, birthless, deathless, disease-less, sorrow less. You are eternal. You are free. You are Divine. You are eternal. This is the truth. For some moments daily, close your eyes, and think that you are infinite. This consciousness is One and we are that. We have so many covers, like blankets on us. We think we are the blankets and weep.
