Thought for the day

ウパニシャッドは肉体という木にとまる2匹の鳥、ジヴァアートマとパラマートマがいると宣言しています。一方の鳥は、その木の果実を味わいますが、他方は目撃者として観察しているだけです。しかし、不思議なことは、それは2匹に見えますが、実際にはひとつです。同じ真実の二つの側面なので、二つに分けることなどできません。空気中の水蒸気は目に見えませんが、個体の氷と同じ性質です。ニラーカラ(無形の神)とサーカラ(有形の神)は、ひとつの実相が二通りに映し出されたものに過ぎません。

ババ

The Upanishads state that there are two birds, the Jivatma and the Paramatma that sit on the tree called the body. One bird eats the fruit of that tree while the other simply looks on as a witness. But, the wonder is that the two birds are in reality one, though they may appear as two. They cannot be separated since they are two aspects of the same reality. Steam in the air may be invisible, but it is of the same nature as ice which is solid. Niraakara (the formless aspect of the Divine) and the Saakara (the manifest Divinity ) are just two ways in which the One projects itself.

- Baba
