Knowledge is the eye of all - Aitareya Upanisad.

We perceive the things of the world, conceive them, evaluate their usefulness and agreeability to our senses, form some conception of value, try either to accept them or reject them depending upon their agreeability to us, thus, think that our sole purpose of existence is confronting the things of the world, even though in some rare moments, we feel as if transcending the world.

We do this in many different ways, in innumerable manners, relevant to our countless situations and different idiosyncrasies, peculiar to each of us. These processes have become automatic and spontaneous, and hardly we have time to reflect on what we are doing. Reflections India provides an opportunity to all those who pause a little and think over the validity of their ideas and perceptions, who try to discover their own reality in the web of life and ascertain the purposefulness of life and existence.

Who am I? Why am I here? What is the world that we experience?

The answer remains hidden in the depth of our own being. Let us reflect, seek, contemplate and find it.


Upanisads: Knowledge and Interpretation
Dr. Haramohan Mishra

If something confounds us, we call it a mystery. Mixed with a sense of admiration, we call it wonderful. Endowed with awe and veneration, we call it sublime.

The Unknown Matrix : A Critique of the Advaita Theory of the Unknown
Dr. Haramohan Mishra

While it is obvious that an object is revealed by knowledge as known, it seems absurd to think that it is also revealed as unknown by knowledge. In other words, the problem consists of this; whether an unknown object is related to knowledge in some way or other, as a known object is related to it. Epistemological necessity compels us to accept a relation between knowledge and unknown, as otherwise there can be no assertion of difference between non-existent and unknown.
