Talks on the
Atma Pooja Upanishad
"In the world we exist as duality. Beyond the world we exist
as nonduality, one. You can think of yourself as a triangle: two angles
exist in the world and the third angle exists beyond the world. Two
angles belong to this, this world, and one angle belongs to that,
the world of the brahman. But if these two are in an imbalance, you
cannot go beyond them. You go beyond them only when they regain balance.
This balancing is nirvana,
this balancing is moksha, this balancing is the centering. How does
awareness work to balance this duality? And the moment this duality
is balanced, you cannot be reborn again – you disappear from
the world. You can be born again and again only if there is an imbalance.
If the balance comes to totality, the balance becomes total, it is
impossible to be born again. You disappear from the world. The body
cannot exist then. Then you cannot re-enter a body again."
