DIVINE PRESENCE: Enlightenment – When the individual self is lost in the Universal Self

Source – greatmindsgreatworld.wordpress.com

– The knower and the known have become one. This divine bliss is all pervading. This is the highest samadhi and can be achieved only after self- realization. The individual has merged with Reality or his soul and is completely unaware of the external world. The mind is immersed into the light of the Self. It is compared to a flame that burns quiet and steady, unaffected by the external breeze. Without the help of a master, the sadhak has entered spontaneously into Nirvikalpa, after experiencing Nirvana. There are now no obstacles to overcome or objects to achieve and therefore no effort is needed. The transition is very spontaneous. His individual mind has been annihilated and his consciousness has now merged with the Absolute. He has attained final emancipation through breaking the veils of Maya. He is now a God-realized being.
