    Re: The incomparability of Hinduism

    If you say so, up without down....etc, your idea of reality has a seer and the seen. Then it has to be dualistic and not 'the one' reality.
    But actually, the reality is ONE and it is mere existence. How can one see the seer?
    I think ur idea of reality is an object filling the gap.like saying There is only 'one' star in the sky and that is reality. But who is the one seeing the star?

    ....because there does not exist anything to realise. This is pure Buddhism.

    The above analogy is totally out of context to real meaning of advita. existence can"t be without non-existence???
    Dear,non-existence is itself a existence! dont look at non-existence in materialistic realm where non-existence is actually emptiness.

    There is past,future,no creation or dstruction.its only huge presence and only existence.

    It's not dualistic, because they are inseparable. A wave cannot exist without a trough. I don't understand your metaphor regarding the star.

    A star only exists because there is a background and empty space to contrast it.


    I think this video sums up my belief that there is a unification in these apparently different beliefs. Starting around 6:00.

    Oh boy!

    I see a tree, branches separated geographically and temporally. Each one supporting the other in its own special way.

    I should like to suggest that, an understanding of the four stages of sound may reveal to us that all philosophy's originate in Prana taking the form that Ishvara, Prakriti impose. To be seen and then transposed to word by seers who them selves are just petals on the flowers of a tree whos nectar we may consume so that the tree may grow further.

    To make comparison is to compare one branch of a tree to another. What of its roots and the water that it drinks?
    Are the fruit not all of a kind?

    To cling so tightly to one branch so as to deny the benefit of the rest are we not trying to reassure our selves of its very existence, to free our selves from doubt?

    Aum Shakti.
