This website is all you need to understand true Buddhism and Non Duality.
“What is the one benefit, Master Gotama, which you exist for? The one thing that the Tathagata exists for is the fruit and emancipation by
illumination.” [SN 5.73]
"Followers, this body is to be seen as it really is, it is merely (the product of) past karma (i.e. the body/5-aggregates cannot be purified)." [SN
“The Aryan Eightfold Path is the path leading to immortality” [SN 5.8]
"The Tathagata, the Buddha, is a designation for (means) 'become-Brahman'."[DN 2.84]
"The well-centered mind/will (citta) is the path for attainment of Brahman." [SN 4.118]
“This is immortality, that being the liberated mind/will (citta) which does not cling (after anything)” [MN 2.265]
“This said: ‘the liberated mind/will (citta) which does not cling’ means Nibbana”[MN2-Att. 4.68]
"Steadfast-in-the-Soul (thitattoti) means one is supremely-fixed within the mind/will (citta)”[Silakkhandhavagga-Att. 1.168]
“Your mind/will (citta) is supremely emancipated, like the full moon on the fifteenth day in dark of night!”[SN 1.233]
The Attan website is the largest Metaphysics website on the internet. Attan means Atman, the True Soul, which is equal to Brahman, the absolute
reality. The non-dual Attan is the goal of Buddhism, contrary to a religion of moral rules that are imposed upon disciples. While discipline is
important, Liberation is better than morality.
"The one thing that the Tathagata exists for is the fruit and emancipation by illumination.” [SN 5.73]
The Tathagata is a word that means "gone to the (Absolute) One" and is achieved through liberation of the Mind/Will through Gnosis (Wisdom).
The author also shows his own depth of knowledge when it comes to Non-duality wisdom:
Webmaster attan.com-"Here said: 'I am not that, this is not me, that is not my Soul (na me so atta)'. No thing (phenomena, namo-rupa,
corporeality, khandhas) is my Soul. My True-nature is my Soul (svabhava), which is no thing, gone unseen until now due to the fog of nescience. No
thing can be said to be my Soul; this is the deep trap in which the weak minds of fools become ensnared to conclude 'nothing is' and deny,
ultimately, true liberation (vimutta) [SN 3.46] from bondage and That which is liberated, That which obtains immortality (amata), That which no longer
tastes of death. That of which nothing can be said of him who has obtained the immortal state, for what is like unto That which one can say: 'It is
like this, or it is like that'. Nothing is like unto It, for It is like unto itself alone, not like unto another, neither concept nor metaphor touch
It or impart it to the seeker save wisdom alone. The snake cannot eat itself so as to ever make claim 'nothing is'; such is the dogma of fools
unable to see the foundation of phenomena, the unseen Seer, the unmoved Mover in which both movement and change are superimposed on the mind by the
fog of nescience which creates the unreal duality of actor and acted, deed and doer, feeler and felt; causing simple minds to make merit, do deeds,
heap virtue for a better life or afterlife, and praise compassion, never seeing that the stainless Soul obtained by wisdom is unsoiled and without
want, either of deed or merit, for both are brother and sister to samsara itself. Merit making is the karmic # heap of samsara upon which the cock
crows and bemuses himself king; the Soul partakes of itself alone [KN 2.380] , and by wisdom alone is won; him alone do the wise call 'victor of the
battle against death's touch', not the former who is bound to samsara as sure as his merits make him so, be they good or bad. Between being (sat,
atthiti, abbamatthi, sabbamekattan) and nonbeing (asat, natthiti, sabbamnatthi, sabbam puthuttan) is That which declares, in ignorance, both views, is
That from which both heretical views come. That is That, Brahman-become, the means, the middlemost Soul [majjhatta], the body of Brahman [DN 3.84]
free, pure, unbecome[Ud. 81], Tathagata. Nothing true can be said of the Absolute for all speech, affirmation and negation are mutually exclusive
binary antinomy concepts which are circum-experiential to the phenomenal man so-and-so. The true said of the True are directive negations to immediacy
with the One without another."
Brahman, the absolute, the pure, the immortal, taintless Supreme Soul of All, yet not any of the All, between being and non-being, That thou Art, That
thou Art. One without a second.
