IK ONKAAR (ACD)
The Absolute Truth being infinite, It connot be defined through words or concepts, which are relative and limited, therefore finite. Any discussion of the Ultimate Reality in the Scriptures is merely indicative or descriptive.
One such ‘pointer’ in the direction of the Absolute Truth – and an extremely effective one at that that – is Shri Guru Nanak Devji’s Mul Mantra (‘Ik Onkar…’), found in the Guru Granth Sahib. As the term itself denotes, the Mul (‘root’) Mantra is a fountainhead of True Wisdom. If meditated upon with sincerity and ardour, the Mul Mantra can serve as a powerful Launchpad that can skyrocket us to mystical heights beyond mere intellectual comprehension… eventually propelling us into the silent realm of Infinite Consciousness.
With impeccable logic and rare insight, Swami Swaroopananda reveals how the Mul Mantra is the hallmark of the profoundest spiritual experience. Understanding this we not only gain a stronger, more rational perspective on the universality of all Scriptural declarations, but also we grow inwardly richer as we gain a fuller appreciation of the One Indivisible Truth that is – nay, that has to be – at the heart of all spiritual pursuit both past and present.
