It is evident that the physical body is mere apparatus within the experince of duality[mind]. The physical body is completely dependent on the formless entity. Without the physical entity the body cannot function itself as a person and perceive the world with in the experince of duality [Waking or dream]. Therefore it is erroneous to take a authorship of the physicality which is mere apparatus and view and judge the worldview.

It is for assimilating the knowledge of the self, seeker has to learn to view and judge the worldview on the base of the formless entity, to realize the fact that, the whole experince of diversity is mere mirage on the base of the formless entity, in the midst of the experince of diversity.

The essence of Vedas say: body[dehum]is not self[naham]kohum [what is self] self is that[sohum]. When the great scriptures like Vedas, which is the mother of all the scriptures, declare the truth that, body is not the self, why to theorize by taking the authorship of the body, when the body is not the author.Why seek truth on the base of body, when the body is not the self.

Seeker has to try to view and judge, on the base of the true author, to get the wisdom, to realize the fact that whole experince is mere mirage created out of single formless substence, and there is no second thing other then it. Hence it is non dual. There is nothing exist other then the formless substence which is the true self.

Nirakara said: the people who cling to the birth entity as self, and try to assimilate the knowledge of the self will remain in the clutches of hallucination.

Inquiry and reasoning reveals the fact that the physical body is not the self, then what was one before his birth, and what he is going to be after death, when self is not the body? Therefore the physical based seeking will lead the seeker to all sorts of doubts and confusion.

Nirakara said: it is only ignorance that people think the duality will vanish when one gets the wisdom. The duality does not vanish, but the wisdom dawns, and one will realizes the fact that Waking[duality] is also as real as dream, on the standpoint of the true self, in the midst of the Waking experince[duality].

In this state of wisdom, one becomes aware of the fact that the whole experince of diversity, is created out a single non dual substence, there is no second thing other than that substence. That non dual substence itself, is the witness of the experince of diversity. The experince of diversity is mere mirage. Therefore what is the use of spinning yarn of theories on the base of physical identity or the base of the world, when the experince of diversity is mere mirage created out of single formless substence.

Wisdom means to know the real and unreal nature of the self, in the midst of the experince of diversity.

Nirakara said: The Waking experince becomes like a mere mirror, to one who becomes aware the true self, is formless.

What reflection the mirror will have, when the the formless is in front of it.

Only on the base of the the formless self: Advtha Master Sri, Sankara declared the world is myth and everything is Brahman.

Nirkara said: other then the formless self, everything is illusion.

Buddha called it emptiness.[empty of experince of duality]

Meher Baba called it, I am GOD state.

The great non dual Masters have declared it as non duality or emptiness or illusion or Brahman, in the state of illusion[duality] itself. The purpose of acquiring the wisdom is, to assimilate the knowledge of the formless entity, which has this illusion, to overcome the illusion in midst of the illusion[duality].

The duality will not vanish,when wisdom dawns, but its unreal nature will be realized in midst of experince of duality, same way one realize the falsehood of dream, when the Waking takes place.

The falsehood of the Waking will be realized, when the wisdom dawns. And one will be able to establish in the eternal identity in midst of the experince of duality, and view and judge the worldview, on the base of the the eternal formless identity, in the midst of the experince of the diversity, fully aware of the fact duality is mere mirage and non duality ultimate truth.

Thus one becomes free from the illusion of duality, which he was experiencing it as reality, in the midst of the experince of diversity.

Body is not Self...

...but body is not "other than Self", either.

This is the mistake we constantly make: The mind goes to one pole or another. To the mind it has to be either Reality or Illusion, but the truth is really neither.

When watching television, we are seeing something... there is an indication that something is there displaying pictures. However, the idea "the world is outside our window": There is neither indication that it's there, nor indication that it isn't there. We can only think about it. Therefore, in order to exactly reflect the reality, we need to stop assuming the outside world is there, without taking the opposite stance and assuming it's NOT there.

This is Advaita. We lose the false, without gaining some additional belief in "illusion".

Physical body

The physical body is contained in who we are and that is awareness. The universe is in us, we are not in the universe.
