Liberation from Visnumaya is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 17 in Patna, India. This discourse is the ninth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 2.[1]

Synopsis

Tasyábhidhyáhat yojanát tattvabhávát. By dint of a never-ending process or practice you come in closest contact with Him. Yojanát and tattvabhávát: tat + tva. Tat means That; that is, Nirakśara Brahma. Ideating on that only, that item only, that entity only, is tattvabhávát. Bhúyashcánte Vishvamáyánivrttih. And the final goal of yours, final result of yours, the resultant of so many practices should be liberation from Vishvamáyá.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by explaining the difference between two concepts: Kśara and Akśara. The first refers to the creative entity and the latter to the unchanging Puruśa. He then introduces a third entity called Nirakśara Brahma. Nirakśara Brahma is also called Taraka Brahma – the point having control over both. Anandamurti goes on explaining that through sádhaná (spiritual effort) we should withdraw all our propensities and goad them unto that one tangential point, that this is the only way to get liberation from Vishvamáyá.[1]

Notes

  1. ^ Though the title given to this discourse by the editors is "Liberation from Visnumaya", the topic is clearly "Liberation from Vishvamaya". Hence, the title of the discourse appears to have been poorly chosen.
