Example text

7. XI (28-31). So is the Breath mentioned in Kalll}itaki U pani$ad (Kau. ) 3. 2. TOPIC: 1. 2. 1-32 I (1-8). The subject of Ch. Up. 3. 14 is not the individual soul but Brahman itself. II (9-10). So is that of Katha Upani§ad (Ka. ) l. 2. 25. III (11-12). The two beings of Ka. Up. 1. 3. 1 are Brahman and the individual soul. IV (13-17). The Person-in-the-Eye of Ch. Up. 4. 15. l is Brahman. V (18-20). ad (Brh. ) 3. 7. 3 is Brahman. VI (21-23). The Invisible of Murpj,aka Upanisad (Mu. ) 1. 1. 3 is Brahman.

The first solution is that Brahman is One, without quality or distinction; that "Brahman" stands for undifferentiated being (nirgw:ia Brahman), for a non-personal "oneness" or "ground" of being. The second answer is that Brahman contains within Itself a multiplicity of real attributes, that Brahman is "personal"; that "Brahman" stands for a divine being (sagw:w Brahman). The first answer is essentially monistic or non-dualistic (a-duaita); the second is essentially "theistic" or dualistic (dvaita).

It is not true that this makes Brahman subject to experience and thus to karman. VI (14-20). The product is nondifferent from its cause. VII (21-23). Identity of the soul with Brahman does not make Brahman a cause of evil. VIII (24-25). Brahman needs no instrumentation for world production. IX ( 26-29). Brahman does not entirely become world and remains one and undivided. X (30-31). Brahman creates without instruments and by its own power. XI (32-33). Brahman has no motivation in creating the world.
