We find that
Transcendental Philosophy postulates a Quantum Ground State, a substratum, as
the base of all Existence. This is Existence Itself, Sat, Knowledge Itself,
Chit and Bliss Itself, Ananda.
The Subjective Being Knowledge Bliss
The Absolute Being is experientially felt as as a state of Existence or Being, Sat. This is the Quantum Ground State of the Universe and can be compared to the deep most level of the Ocean, the level of Being.
Being knows Itself as Itself and this is Self Knowledge, Chit
Being is always blissful of Its existence and this is Ananda.
Sat Chit Anandam Brahma, averrs the Great Upanishads. This Absolute Being is the timeless and spaceless Existence which alone makes Time, Space, Causality and Cosmos possible !
The Objective Truth Knowledge Infinity
While Being is subjectively experienced as Being, Its objective manifestation is as Truth, Satyam. Chit or Knowledge manifests objectively as Wisdom, Jnanam.
While Buddha et al condemn Life as a bed of thorns ( Sarvam Dukham, Sarvam Shoonyam, Sarvam Kshanikam, Life is difficut,sorrow, suffering ), the question is asked " Why do you live, despite the adversities faced by you? " The answer is the Will to Live. What is this impulse, the Will to Live ? It is based on what?
The First Science, the Adi Sastra, Vedanta Sastra, answers this question like this. Behind all the difficulties and the innumerable adversities, there is the Bliss of Being. We carry on with our lives, because of the Will to Live, because our basic nature is Bliss or Ananda.
Anandam Braham, the Absolue Self is Bliss. Anandena imani bhoothani jayante, anandena jathena jeevanti, anandam prayantyapi samvishanti, averrs the Upanishads. From Bliss everything is born, in Bliss everything exists and into Bliss everything will merge back !
The objective manifestation of Bliss is Infinity or boundlessness. So the Rishies of yore defined Reality objectively, as Truth, Knowledge, Infinity, Satyam Jnanam Anantam Brahma !
