Sri Rupert Spira says : "Just as the screen is intimately one
with all images and, at the same time,
free of them, so "I", the light of
pure Knowing, am one with all
experiences and yet at the same
time inherently free of them."
Is not this teaching same as that of
Bruhadaranyaka Upanishad "asaMgO hi ayaM purushaH"
and Sri Shankara's statement " AtmA sarvagatatvAt
The reader may kindly note that Sri Rupert Spira,
an Englishman, has not studied any vedanta texts
nor has read Sri Shankara's commentaries.
Yet his statements are nothing but the teachings
of Upanishads and Sri Shankara. How to account for this?This clearly shows that Atmajnana is universal andnot the monopoly of a country, sect or any Matha.
With respectful namaskars,Sreenivasa Murthy
