Random Musings-Part 27- The path of the heart and the head

Nithin Sridhar

The path through the heart and the path through the head ultimately leads to same goal. The difference lies only in the approach of a seeker. The former is the path of Atma Jnana and the latter is the path of Brahma-Jnana, the goal being same Brahman also called as Atman.

In the path of the heart, a person inquires into his own Innermost Self/Atman. And hence, it ends in the Realization that, the whole Universe is his very Self. The whole Universe merges into his Self or his Self expands into the whole Universe. On the other hand, in the path of the head, a person merges himself into Brahman, the substratum of the Universe.
