A flower lives a life in divine unity. It remains absorbed in inner bliss within its own fragrance. That is the state of oneness, creation lives every moment without getting separated from its true existence. Ekatmabhava or Oneness is living in the fragrance of Self. It is the non dual state of Sat Chit Ananda where one looses all separate individuality and dissolves in supreme diversity. This state of diversity becomes one in the formless aspect of unity in divinity. Permeating peace is experienced through an encompassing feeling towards God. All separations melt away and a divine state gets established within everything. This is the state of a flower how it leads its life in the essence of this truth of oneness always. It is never separate from its innate state of fragrance. When we can watch a flower’s life intently we can assimilate the qualities from its life silently. A flower only experiences the nectar in its own absorbing state of being. After becoming that state of bliss it radiates the fragrance in creation.

When a bud blooms it lives in the hope of a new beginning. It awaits for the indwelling beauty to shine through.  After this bud blooms it is embellished with its divine splendor and gift from God. It enjoys its truth and embraces the feet of the lord with complete surrender. The lord accepts the flower at His feet through complete merger. The inner oneness of becoming the essence of God’s fragrance is the purpose of this life’s journey.

When prema becomes the nectar and source to reach to, the journey becomes enjoyable. The quest for seeking the truth continues as one dives into the ocean of nectar and experiences oneness with the supreme entity. This state is ceaseless and eternal. The quest continues until this state of supreme bliss is attained. ‘Brahmavid Brahmaivabhavati’. In the holy scriptures it is explained that the knower of Brahman becomes the essence of Brahman. There lies no separation anymore between the essence and source anymore. The intense burning of the soul grows and it washes away the separation. The state of oneness is experienced through complete surrender at the encompassing will of the lord. The state of bliss becomes the natural state of being. The knower remains absorbed in the truth of known. The path of knowledge and the seeker becomes one entity of existence. All separation of duality vanishes and the state of advaita vedanta is experienced through this supreme merger of soul and over-Soul. After attaining complete annihilation of mind, this state of tranquility can be attained. This is the serene bliss beyond any exhaustion and retains its existence in all state of awareness. After one withdraws from all sorts of sensory perceptions the state of pure love burns within as one’s sublime life force.

Adi Sankaracharya explains this state in ‘Nirvanasatakam ‘ as the ultimate state of oneness, Shivoham. Our only truth that transcends time space and exists till infinity, Sat Chit Ananda~

I am not the mind, Intelligence, sense of ‘I’ of ahamkara, Conditioned consciousness. I am none of the sense organs that consists of ears, tongue, nose, eyes and skin. I am not the pancha bhutas that consists the five elements of sky or ether, earth, light or fire, the wind and the water.

Who am I ?
I am “Shiva”, Sat-Chit-Ananda beyond of all these physical boundaries.

I am neither the vital energy nor vital airs. I am not the saptha dhatu. I am not the Panchakoshas, five sheaths covering the true self. I am not the Karmendriyas.

Who am I?
I am “Shiva”, Sat- Chit- Ananda that resides beyond all these.

I have no hatred or dislike, neither greed nor liking, no delusion. I have no pride or nor jealousy. I am beyond the four purusarthas of human goals, Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha or Liberation.

What is my truth?
I am “Shiva”. I am Sat-Chit-Ananda beyond all these boundaries of life and death.

I am beyond virtue, vice, pleasure, pain, sacred chants, pilgrimages, scriptures of Vedas and rituals or sacrifices. I am neither the enjoyed nor the enjoyer, nor enjoyment.

Who am I?
I am “Shiva”, Sat-Chit-Ananda. I reside in this truth eternally beyond any barriers or boundaries.

I have no fear of death, nor do I have death. I have no doubt and discrimination. I have no father or mother, I have no birth. I have no relatives, nor friend, nor the guru, nor the disciple.

What is my existence and truth?

I am all pervasive, and without any form. I pervade all senses and world. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to the liberation.

Who am I?

That is the true state of oneness. I remain closely knit with this inner communion in bliss. There lies no separation amidst a flower and its fragrance anymore when they merge in bliss forever. How to separate the flower from its fragrance when it is fully bloomed in its original state of Kaivalyam? Through this state one receives complete merger in God and tastes the sweet nectar of Aikyam.
