Tripura Rahasya, Tripurantaka, Tripurasundari, Brahma, Parambrahma, Allegories in Scriptures

Our scriptures have a lot of allegories which can only be understood through direct meditation experiences. Reading and trying to understand the scriptures with our minds or intellect will lead to confusions. Religion, Spirituality, God, Meditation, Kundalini, Atma, Soul, Spirit, Consciousness, Meditation, etc., are understood by differently by different people. All this difference is because of wrong interpretation of the scriptures and also because of lack of direct experiential knowledge of the aforementioned concepts.

Go through the link to know about the reality of the world as per Vedas and sceince:

In the ancient times, the Self-realized persons or Rishis revealed that there is a Supreme Sound which is the creator of the entire cosmos, which they termed as Brahm for the following reason. The Sanskrit word Brahm is made up of two words, Br + Ahm where "Br" means to say or to grow, and "Ahm" is the Supreme Sound. The Self-realized persons said that Brahm resides and vibrates more prominently in the heart of an individual, which has a shape of a lotus bud. Brahm is very old or ancient since it is the creator of the cosmos.

They said that Brahm has spread, grown, and is in all four directions of the cosmos, i.e., everywhere. Brahm decides the destiny of everyone: one who has loosened the knots of the heart is not born again and who has not loosened the knots will take birth again. Brahm is associated with knowledge or consciousness. To speak figuratively, Brahm has knowledge as its consort. Brahm is also Hamsa. "Ham" (Ahm) is the Supreme Sound and "Sa" is is That (Brahm, Reality). Cosmic Reality is the Supreme Sound.


"Ayam Atma Brahma"

Food for Thought: The Rishis said the knower of Brahm becomes Brahm, "Brahmavid Brahmaiva Bhavati." Therefore, all the Self-realized Rishis were addressed as "Brahman," knower of Brahm. Time passed, the wisdom and knowledge of Rishis were collected and compiled as scriptures. People who were proficient in such compiled scriptures, without enlightenment/direct knowledge of Brahm, started calling themselves Brahman or Brahmana. Such people just had dry scriptural knowledge. Over a period of time, some enlightened people felt they needed to tell the truth and stop the lies, corruption, misinterpretation, misuse, and manipulation of the word Brahman or Brahmana. They said, "Brahmajnana jaanati iti Brahmana, i.e., knower of Brahman is a Brahmana." In other words, a Self-realized person is a Brahmana.

Click to know about Brahm and the reality behind our cosmos:

This Supreme Sound/Vibration (ahm, ham, aham, aum) is also called the Supreme Word (Parama Pada/Paramapad) when written not as a symbol ( ) but with letters in Sanskrit like aum, om, aham,  (ओम्,  etc.,).

Bhakti yogis believe that their beloved God resides in the highest place (Paramapad/Paramapadam) and they will attain that highest place/position/His abode due to their Bhakti or grace of God. Our scriptural allegories can only be understood with direct experiential knowledge through deep meditation/Samadhi.

The Supreme Word is also the Word of God.

BIBLE: JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

BIBLE: "Be still, and know that I am (Aham is) God."

Brahm=The Supreme Creator/Vibration that has grown into this veritable Cosmos/cosmic multitude of names and forms.
Abraham or Abram (Hebrew meaning father, many, multitude = thus One which has grown into many, multitude) is the patriarch of Jews, Judaism, Islam, etc.
The knowledge and wisdom of Brahmajnaanis and Yogis have been made as scriptures. All religions are born with one or the other scripture.

Tripura Rahasya, Tripurantaka, Tripurasundari, Tripura, Triloka, Trikaala:

Rahasya means "secret" and Tripura refers to "3 cities." The 3 cities are Jagrat, Swapna, and Sushupti (waking, dreaming, and deep sleep) states of our body-mind complex. Atma, soul, spirit, spiritual body/mind/consciousness resides in these 3 cities, i.e., in our body.

A spiritual person due to good Samskaras realizes that these 3 wonderful, bewitching (sundari), magical cities are in fact the jails that have bound his Atma or soul from time immemorial.  Upon such realization, he sacrifices all the enjoyments of the 3 cities, takes to spiritual Sadhana, burns or destroys the 3 cities, frees his Atma from bondage, and ultimately becomes an Atmajnaani or Brahmajnaani.

Destruction or burning of the 3 cities means getting rid of dehatmabuddhi, i.e., getting rid of the ignorance that the body with its 3 states is Atma. With the destruction of dehatmabuddhi, the Jnaani gets into a new state called Turiya or 
Turyavastha (the fourth state) in which he starts to dwell in his spiritual body/mind/consciousness. 

Since an Atmajnaani burns or destroys the 3 cities of ignorance or evil (ignorance is evil), he is called Tripurantaka, destroyer of the 3 cities.

Food for Thought: Can Tripura also refer to the three worlds or 3 Lokas (Bhur, Bhuvah, Swaha) of Jagrat Loka, Swapna Loka, Sushupti Loka? The lord/owner of these 3 Lokas is the Atma, which knows the past, present, and future of the individual as well as the cosmos. Can Trikaala also refer to Jagrat Kaal, Swapna Kaal, Sushupti Kaal? The knower of Atma becomes the Atma itself. Therefore the Atma/Atmajnaani is called a
Trilokinath or a Trikaalajnaani.

"Jeev Hi Shiv Hai"

For creation of cosmos according to Indian scriptures:



Brahmajnaani: "There is nothing new to learn. You just need to unlearn. Spirituality is about unlearning. Spirituality is about direct experiential knowledge of oneself. You do not need books, gurus, or others to tell you how to know or experience yourself. The maximum these can do is to direct you toward your Inner Guru. Your Inner Guru is your real guide."

Brahmajnani: "Unless you forget everything and silence your  monkey of a mind, you cannot meditate. There is no Self-knowledge without meditation."

Sadhu: "If one could have spiritual knowledge through bookish proficiency, with my Paanditya (proficiency), I could make anybody turn in his grave. Spiritual knowledge cannot be experienced through book learning. Spiritual knowledge without experience is as good as a man thinking him to be the biological father of a kid without having sex with the kid's mother."

WARNING: It's okay if you don’t meet a Brahmajnani (Self-realized seer) or realize yourself in this life, but never ever follow a BHRAMjnaani (a fake guru who will make you delusional).  If you do, then you will suffer your entire life.
