Dear Sri Venkatraghavan
//Then there is no need for anyone to try for
moksha since no one is affected
Ultimately this is
true - but people incorrectly believe that they are
miserable, and to correct that moksha shAstra
An incorrect belief of misery is real misery. Therefore people are really affected by misery when they incorrectly believe they are miserable. I have discussed this point here -
//Why one, every single experience, which is
nothing but a thought, is
real, because it is a viShaya for sAkshi pratyaksha//
Please provide a single example to show that thoughts are not real.
//No, because perception of thought does not
require another thought, only
- so there is no infinite regress. It is consciousness
is self evident.//
As Des Cartes says, I think, therefore I am. It is thoughts and perceptions that make us realize that we are a conscious entity. There is no consciousness in the state of dreamless sleep.
