the sayings of Shankara (aka Adi Shankaracharya) one needs reaching
level of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed.
Simply stated only when one reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) the cosmic crux of life becomes clear... never otherwise!

It is beyond
comprehension of normal human beings to understand the workings
of cosmic system. The entire cosmic system is beyond the purview
of our senses and the mind. Only when one becomes an enlightened
one after establishing absolute control over the five senses and
the mind... the entire picture of the Cosmos becomes absolutely
Cosmos consists of many universes. In Advaita Vedanta Adi Shankaracharya
termed the whole Cosmos as a work of Maya (veil of illusion)! Why?
Broken down to the basic elements of the Cosmos... the whole Cosmos
consists of only atoms and molecules. Every solid matter is in fact
a cluster of gaseous matter... nothing more!
the cosmic point of view... every human being is a cluster of atoms
and molecules. Only when viewed from the senses point of view things
appear solid. Furthermore, the present Cosmos does not seem to have
a boundary. If it does have... then what beyond! The prime reason
why the present Cosmos (Jagat) has been termed as imaginary... mithya!
Ever since God
Almighty (a cluster of all purified souls atmans in the Cosmos)
exploded self with a big bang... the whole Cosmos is still expanding.
We are getting farther and farther away from distant stars and planets.
This proves that the boundary of the Cosmos is not fixed... rather
the Cosmos does not seem to have boundary... and the whole Cosmos
is nothing but an illusion!
