Sri Shuka Paramarshi asks,” Child, as I said now, the seed or beejam of a created being is the self-luminous akshara or alphabet and the seed or beejam of that self-luminous akshara or alphabet is Aksharam, then what is this self-luminous akshara or alphabet? I have said that it has manifested from Aksharam. I have also said that this self-luminous akshara or alphabet possesses inherent light, sound and matter. What is the quintessence of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet?

The self-luminous akshara or alphabet when manifested from Aksharam is unmanifest or Avyakta. It is AUM. It is Primordial Light. It is Sabda Brahman. It is Existence or Sat. It is Consciousness or Chaitanya or Chit. It is Bliss or Ananda. The self-luminous akshara or alphabet remains in the state of unmanifest – manifest i.e Avyakta – Vyakta. That is, a created being should use the manifested state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet that is known as “body” to know, realize, understand and experience its unmanifest or Avyakta state that will eventually lead the created being to Aksharam.

The self-luminous akshara or alphabet in its unmanifest state or as Avyakta can be called invisible, infinite, self-effulgent, Time, prana or breath of the universe, Vedas, dharma, jnana and dhwani or sound. Its inherent nature is Aksharam. The self-luminous akshara or alphabet in its unmanifest state or Avyakta is described as the brilliance of a million Suns or Koti Surya Samaprabha or Koti Surya Praksasha or Sat. This unmanifest self-luminous akshara or alphabet is AUM and the experience of this AUM with the “body” or manifested state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet is Bliss or Ananda. The realization of this unmanifest self-luminous akshara or alphabet with the “body” or manifested state of self-luminous akshara or alphabet is Consciousness or Chaitanya or Chit. Hence, it has been said that the SATCHITANAND, the experience of Aksharam or Brahman or Self is the experience leading one to the Supreme Self. Although, to differentiate and say the knowledge, realization and experience of the unmanifest or Avyakta self-luminous akshara or alphabet is SatChit and Ananda respectively becomes a subject of ambiguity because the origin of all is the one and only Aksharam and hence, its experience can also be only One.

 

This is the science of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet that dictates the manifested state or Vyakta of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet. As the self-luminous akshara or alphabet possesses inherent light, sound and matter, the intermingling and union of the inherent light, sound and matter among themselves leads to the creation of self-luminous aksharas or alphabets from which more self-luminous aksharas or alphabets are created thus, expanding the created universe with more differentials of light, sound and matter as time, space, ego, mind, intellect, five-fold attributes, five-fold elements, the myriad forms of the Supreme Self or Devathas or Gods, the myriad mantras, the various forms and shapes of the created beings and others. This is the manifested state or Vyakta of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet.

Hence, each and every manifested or Vyakta self-luminous akshara or alphabet possesses the same core of light, sound, matter and the differentials of time, space, ego, mind, intellect, five-fold attributes, five-fold elements and others. This becomes the form or shape of the manifested or Vyakta self-luminous akshara that is the the “body” of the created being.

A created being should thus take the help of the manifested or Vyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet namely the “body” or its form or shape to experience the unmanifest or Avyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet leading him or it to the Supreme Self.”
