From Anil Kumar’s talk on “The goal of life”
Consciousness is eternal, immortal, nectarine and blemish-less. Swami drives home that point. But the point is, we cannot define that consciousness. I can define what a glass is, or I can define what glasses are; I can define a table; but I cannot define the consciousness.
How do you define Atma? What is it? You cannot, because it is indefinable. All definitions fail. I can describe and define all materialistic objects. I can describe all which is subject to the perception of the five senses. But how can we define Atma Thathwa (the reality of the spirit) that transcends all sensual perception?
