“That thou art”


All the Upanishadic texts without exception are deemed to be concerned, directly or indirectly, with the establishment of one truth, namely, “That thou art”… and the function of this cardinal text, in turn, is ‘to end the conviction that one is the individual soul, competent for agency and empirical experience in the realm of illusory modifications… the individual soul, who is in reality nothing but the indivisible Self; but it is a knowledge which has become hidden by the veil of individuality, and thus by the ‘mutual super-imposition of the Self and the not-self called ignorance’.
