Understand: what you are listening to today is going to be one of my breakthrough contributions to the whole Hindu philosophy, Sanatana Dharma, because the modern-day neo- Hindus are suffering without understanding this word ‘non- dualism’. Tons of questions! ‘If non-dualism means oneness, then how can so many gods be there?’
Please listen, today I am defining ‘non-duality’. Non-duality is not oneness. Non-duality means: ‘Infinite, but able to grasp’. You will expand to grasp the infinite; that is Advaita, non-duality. It is the intellectual criminals like Max Mueller and Max Muellerian translation of our Vedas which abuse our Vedas, by translating non-duality as oneness, which is not right. They tried to translate by using the word ‘monism’. No! Advaita is neither monism nor oneness. Advaita means ‘non-dual’. ‘A’ + ‘Dvaita’ – ‘not two’. ‘Not two’ does not mean ‘one’; it means ‘Neither one nor two’. Uncountable!
If I have to translate the word ‘Advaita’ with the clear meaning and interpretation from practical experience, this is the experiential expression of Advaita: ‘Advaita does not mean oneness, Advaita does not mean monism, it means there is no two, there is no one, but infinite; everything is infinitely powerful’. That is why the Sanatana Hindu Dharma allows all of us to be gods and not fight with each other. All of us are gods and we don’t need to fight with each other, we don’t need any superior body to guide all of us, to rotate all of us, or to put a traffic signal for all of us. Are the planets having any traffic policeman to put signal? No! They are all independently intelligent! All of them exist as independently intelligent... all of them exist and all of them are ultimate. There is no need for a superior body. Same way, all of us are gods and there is no need for a superior body. You realize your potentiality, you establish yourself in the space of Completion, you are God! That’s all!
