Sri Shuka Paramarshi says, “Child, the complex gamut of creation and creation differentials of light, sound, matter, time, space, movement, ego, mind, intellect, five-fold attributes, five-fold elements, myriad shapes and forms of beings, myriad forms of the Supreme Self, innumerable mantras, the Vedas, Sabda Brahman, innumerable sadhanas and anustanas and everything else in this ever-changing and expanding universe is difficult and almost impossible for a created being to comprehend on his or its own. The reason is that there are innumerable parameters, permutations and combinations in the structure and composition of the atom of creation.
What is important to remember and perceive and eventually experience is that the universe and creation that exists outside and seen around is the same universe and creation that exists within as well and thereby exists in each and every atom in a created being.
Transcending the interwoven structure and dynamics of the atom which is the seed of one’s creation can be done only with the help of the Self or self-luminous akshara or alphabet as the atom and the very atom’s internal interwoven structure that a created being should transcend is the Self or self-luminous akshara or alphabet. Hence, it has been said that only the Self can know the Self, only the Self can realize the Self, only the Self can understand the Self, only the Self can experience the Self and only the Self can attain the Self.
All this will sound and appear ambiguous but it is the Truth. It is not only difficult to decipher and understand the structure and composition of an atom that holds all of creation within it let alone try to understand how to transcend the complex structure within it.
The process of transcendence within the atom can be done only with the help of the Self or self-luminous akshara or alphabet using the “body” or the manifest or Vyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet and the unmanifest or Avyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet. A created being must follow the guidance and instructions of the Self or self-luminous akshara or alphabet diligently for him or it to transcend the denser layers in the periphery of the atom entering each and every inner space and layer more subtle than the previous to finally pierce through the indivisible nature of the atom to eventually become immersed and absorbed into the inherent nature of the atom which is Aksharam or the Supreme Self.
This is indeed difficult to achieve and I would know it as I have done it with the help and Blessings of the Supreme Self and myriad forms of the Supreme Self and with the help of the self-luminous aksharas or alphabets. Transcending the gamut of creation is an astonishing feat and made possible only by the Supreme Self as it is indeed the Supreme Self that transcends the gamut of creation as IT is the Sole Doer.”
