Those who know the enjoyer hold the enjoyer to be real, whereas those familiar with the enjoyable things think of them to be real.

From Early Vedanta to Kashmir Shaivism: The birthlessness of consciousness which is free from causes is constant and Absolute, for all this [i. Thus both experiences, having a beginning and an end, are unreal.

The Mandukya Upanishad (Gaudapa Karika and Shankara Bhashya)

He who truly knows this interprets, without any fear, the meaning of the Vedas. Since the sruti says, “There is no multiplicity here”, “the Lord, owing to maya, is seen diversely”, and “The Self, though Unborn, appears to be born in many ways”, it becomes obvious that He is born through maya. Non-duality is indeed the Supreme Reality, inasmuch as duality is said iarika be its product. Creation is the mere will of the Lord, say those who thought out well the [process of] creation, but those who rely upon time hold that the birth of beings is from time.

There is no diversity anywhere among them, even an iota of it.

Mandukya Upanishad & Karika with Shankara Bhashya – Swami Nikhilananda

I bow down to that Yoga which is devoid of touch with anything [that implies relationship], which conduces to the happiness of all beings and is beneficial, and which is free from dispute and contradiction and is taught by the scriptures. Again, He turns His mind within and imagines various mnadukya.

Having known the all-pervasive OM, the intelligent one does not grieve. No individual self, whatsoever, is born. Consciousness is not in contact with objects nor is it in contact with the appearances of objects.

Of particular interest is Chapter Four, in which according to Bhattacharya, two karikas refer to the Buddha and the term Asparsayoga is borrowed from Buddhism.

To see their ,andukya is like seeing the footprints of birds in the sky. If [in your view] the effect is non-different from the cause and if, for that reason, the effect also is Unborn, how can the cause be Eternal, since it is non-different from the effect that undergoes birth?

But both these are seen to be unreal. The wise realize such a mind to be Brahman; It is undifferentiated, birthless and non—dual. In these three ways he dwells in the body. Those who think of creation hold it as the manifestation of God’s power; while others regard creation as the same as dream and illusion.

There is no dissolution, no origination, none in bondage, none possessed of the means of liberation, none desirous of liberation, and none liberated.

Taijasa, whose field is the dream state, is the second mansukya, U, because this is an excellence, and contains the qualities of the other two.

Some others hold that creation is for the enjoyment of God, yet others say that it is for His sport.


It is called the omniscient Brahman, being one with the birthless Self, which is the true object of knowledge. Those that are familiar with the Personal Deity call It the Personal Deity and those that are familiar with the void, the void.

Gaudapada presents the competing traditional theories about life in vogue, before and in his times, in Karika 6 through 9. These ideas are for the purpose of instruction. Those who know all about creation say that Reality consists in creation. Here ends the Mandukyopanishadincluded in manukya Atharvaveda.

Mandukya Upanishad – Wikipedia

May we hear through our ears what is auspicious; Ye, fit to be worshipped! He is the inner controller. But from the standpoint of the true nature of things we assert that the so—called cause is, after all, no cause. The same Atman explained before as being endowed with four quarters is now described from the standpoint karikq the syllable AUM.

By the censure of [the worship of] Hiranyagarbha, the source of the universe, is negated creation. The title in IAST is: The mind, again, from the standpoint of Reality has no contact with any object.

But multiplicity does not exist in any manner. This world viewed on mahdukya basis of the Self, is not different.
