Deelika marked it as to-read Apr 09, What is its nature? For the Self is Being-Knowledge-Bliss, different from the gross, subtle and causal bodies, witnessing the three states of deeplka, dream and deep sleep.
Savan Vyas marked it as to-read Dec 20, For instance, one studies the shastras dealing with Vishnu and becomes devoted to Him; later on, finding other gods similarly dealt with, one’s devotion to Vishnu is likely to suffer. Because desire is not checked, love, anger, etc.

To know the true nature of the inmost Self, not by direct experience but by a study of the shastras, is called indirect Knowledge. Just as the fire showing forth as heat, light and redness, is not three but only one, or water appearing as coldness, fluidity and taste is only one, so also the Self shining forth as Being-Knowledge-Bliss is not three but only one.
