Bṛihadāraṇyaka Upaniṣhad I.IV.10

वा इदम्-अग्र आसीत् brahma idam-agra VA ब्रह्म āsīt

"This in the beginning was [just] Brahman."

This -All as you can see, dresses and will see through your senses and your mind. The world, the universe ´jagat´ whole, past, present and future; the Earth, the heavens and them Hells, with all its beings and objects, transactions and experiences; what appears, is transformed and disappears.

In the beginning- before his appearance.

It was only Brahman -Existence, consciousness, happiness without differentiation, action and transformation. "सत्यं ज्ञानम्-अनन्तं ब्रह्म satyam jnanam anantam |" Brahman is true ´Satya´ (existence ´Sat´ in yes same, without cause), Knowledge ´Jnāna´ (consciousness ´Chit´), Unlimited ´Ananta´ (happiness ´Ānanda´).” (Taittirīya Upaniṣhad) (2.1); without differentiation: ' एकम्-एव-अद्वितीयम् ekam-eva-advitīyam | " Only one without a second.” (Chāndogya Upaniṣhad (VI.ii.1)

"Only known to himself."

Consciousness = light that shines by itself in, is recognized. Being single in the beginning, there was then no confusion about who I am.

"अहं ब्रह्म-अस्मि इति ahaṁ brahma-asmi iti

´Yo I'm Brahman´."

One of the four famous mahaa-vākyas. See Mahaa-vākyas, the great phrases of the VedĀnta:

"And somebody among the gods who knew that became just that. And the same between the ṛiṣhis and the humans."

Now, in the appearance of the universe with their different regions ´loka´ (six celestial or svarga, it land ´bhūr´ and seven lower or pātāla) and beings (gods, ṛiṣhis, human, demons, animals...) whoever that, having fallen in the black night of the self-identification with a be individualized-a mota of powder in the immensity of the cosmos-, returns to raise is of that darkness limiting and achieves the knowledge direct , immediately of ´yo am Brahman´

Existence, consciousness, happiness unlimited, without duality ´advaita´, where the cosmos and all their specks emerge, exist and is dissolve again and again without modify it, is converts only in that, shedding is immediately, here and now, of them attached limiting that you struggled until kill it, again and again, of death in death: their identification with your body and their organs ´indriyas´ (mind) (, organs of perception and organs of action), the speck of dust which, by its natural insignificance, acts and experiences the results of its action in black night eternal ignorance of the himself, which, however, is endless. You put end to your confusion and suffering doing what have to do for this.

"The Ṛiṣhī Vāmadeva (who is revealed to her part of the Ṛig-Veda), making this [be] like that, knew: ´Yo was Manu (the first human) "and the Sun ´Sūrya´."

Distinguished its own being, residing in his own body, recognizing it as Brahman.

अयं आत्मा-ब्रह्म ayaṁ ātmā-brahma | This self is Brahman." (Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣhad (II)

तत् सत्यम् स आत्मा tat sa ātmā satyam | "This is that truth be." (Chāndogya Upaniṣhad (VI.8.7)

"ॐ खं ब्रह्म । खं पुराणम्; वायुरं खम् om khaṁ brahma | khaṁ purāṇam; vāyuraṁ kham | OM is Brahman, the space, the space eternal. The space that contains the air (all creation).” (Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad V.i.1)

सर्वं खल्विदं तज्जलान् sarvaṁ khalvidaṁ brahma tajjalān ब्रह्म | All this (jagat, the cosmos) is Brahman; born, exists and is dissolved in that (Brahman, the himself).” (Chāndogya Upaniṣhad III.14.1)

The transformation, the differentiation of beings, objects, worlds and times is superficial, as the waves of the sea. As such there are to respect it. But at the same time understand its essence, its reality, only thus is loves really. Of it otherwise, what now we call love is pure selfishness.

And its reality is an and eternal-as the salt in the sea-, the own being immortal, indivisible: "ब्रह्म सत्यं जगन्-मिथ्या;" जीवो ब्रह्मैव नापरः brahma satyaṁ jagan-mithyā; jīvo brahmaiva naparah | Brahman is Satyaṁ ´Verdad´, Jagat (transformation, differentiation) ES mithyā ´apariencia´ (reality transactional ´vyavahārika sat´). Definitely, jīvá (the be in the different bodies) and Brahman (the be one, unlimited by the limitation of the different bodies, times and spaces, without cause and effect or karma) they are not different (are one and the same) "()"Śhaṅkarāchārya).

"This being my own within the heart is smaller than that" […] the core of a seed. This be mine within the heart is more large that the Earth, more large that the space intermediate (between Earth and sky)bigger than the sky, bigger than [all] these worlds." (Chāndogya Upaniṣhad III.14.3)

"नेह नानास्ति किंचन nānāsti kiṁcana neha |" There is no differentiation in that (never, pass which pass in the surface-the waves-, object of perepcion of mind-body).” (Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad IV.iv.19)

Make that-the own being immortal-is the sense of her life. So you finally must purify and calm down, being master of its organs of perception and action, and concentrate totally, passionately, in the Supreme knowledge according to the teachings of master a traditional competent.

"मृत्योः स मृत्युम्-आप्नोति य इज नानेव पश्यति mṛityoḥ sa mṛityum-āpnoti already ija nāneva paśyati |" Who sees the slightest differentiation in that goes from death to death." (Ibid)

"And to this day (here and now), who wants to (whoever = is in the mind-body that is) that it is known that in this way, as brahma-asmi ´ahaṁ - I am Brahman´, becomes in all this (the reality of all universes, time and your love).

Even the gods can stop it, since he is makes in his be.

While he who worships another God thinking one is ´el and I am otro´ (duality, differentiation), not known. It is only as an animal to the gods (at your service).

Equal that many animals serve to a man, each man served to the gods.

The loss of an only animal cause anguish, what should one say of many animals?

Why [the gods] don't like them that people know this.

Servant of the gods, etc. (the trends and conditions of your own mind) to their Lord, their goddess, your own self is ignorance or knowledge.
