Hari Om,
By Vidya the upanishad refers to Upasana and by avidya is meant karma.


Hari Om, By Vidya the upanishad refers to Upasana and by avidya is meant karma.

The Upanishad asks the practitioner to combine Vidya and avidya ie-combine upasna and karma because together they will lead to the highest knowledge possible within this realm.
By karma the diva crosses over mrityu bybringing refinement to ones personality.
By Upasana the individual gains, devatma bhava/ immortality not forever but till the end of the kalpa.
However this is not the ultimate knowledge, it is still not ishavasyaidam.

However this is not the ultimate knowledge, it is still not ishavasyaidam.

The maximum result gained by a combination of Vidya and avidya leads us to a limited fruit of being in the higher realms even in brahmalokas , uniting with hiranya garbha.
It is not the same as knowing oneself. As is possible by isavasyam idam sarvam that is being one with all and seeing everything as a part of oneself.
Knowing oneself to be Ishwar.

By sambhuti Upasana the upanishad, refers to that which is created, manifested, karyabhrama/ hiranyagarbha.
By asambhuti Upasana, the upanishad refers to that which is not created,unmanifested.Karna bhrahma or Maya or Ishwar.

Practice of only sambhuti Upasana leads to A darkness and practice of asambhuti Upasana also leads to even blinding darkness. However both have their fruits. Sambhuti Upasana leads us to pitraloka and asambhuti upasna leads us to devalok.
A combination of both gives a higher result.

The maximum result gained by a combination of both these sambhuti and asambhuti upasanas is Prakruti Laya the most peaceful state of being.
However it is limited to a certain time frame or kalpa. Whereas isavasyam idam sarvam means finding oneself and merging with everything and pervading everything.
Reaching the ultimate goal of self realisation/ atma Vidya.

1) vidya and avidya refers to karma and upasans


2) karma and upasana have to be combined to achieve higher realm in gaining knowledge. Realize oneself and as part of God in this creation.


3) the sambuthi upanishad and asambhuti upanishad refers to the created and untreated form of upanishads. We need a adhyathmik guru to understand the verses and be able to fellow ir recite it.


4) sambhuti upasana leads us into darkness delving into pitraloka and asambhuti upasana leads to blinding dark delving into the world of devalokas. Combining both will help us achieve the fruits better.


5)max result is reached by achieving prakriti laya the inner state of calm. Ishavasya is realizing oneself and also part of everything in this pervading universe

Reflection 8. Answer 1. By VIDYA, the upanishad means UPASANA.
By AVIDYA, the upanishad means KARMA.


              ** Answer 2.** VIDYA, brings its own RESULTS. AVIDYA brings its own RESULTS. By combining the two, the UPANISHAD wants us to  derive,GREATER RESULTS than the SUM of the individual results.

AVIDYA or performing duties regularly, as an offering to GOD and receiving the fruits as PRASADAM, will take us to PITRULOKA,the LOWER worlds such as BHUVAHA and SWAHA. But this is still IGNORANCE or DARKNESS, as we have not REALISED THE SELF. As soon as our PUNYAS are exhausted, we will come back to a different embodiment in the cycle of birth and death(Samsara).
VIDYA or performing UPASANAS takes us to HIGHER WORLDS( those ABOVE SWAHA,namely, Mahaha, janaha Tapaha and Satyam).This takes us to DEVALOKA, and we have a DEVAATMA-BHAVA.This gives us IMMORTALITY OF EMBODIMENT that can remain until PraLaya. This is called AMRUTAM. This is GREATER DARKNESS, because we have not realised the SELF yet.If we have performed SAMBHOOTI UPASANA, the we can IDENTIFY WITH HIRANYA-GARBHA, reach brahma-loka, get material benefits.If we have performed ASAMBHOOTI UPASANA, we can get SIDDHIS, dissolve PRAKRUTTI and merge with the totality. This may even last a KALPA. But this not SELF-REALISATION. IGNORANCE is still there. So this is GREATER DARKNESS. SO ISHAVAASYA IDAM SARVAM HAS NOT BEEN ACHIEVED AND IS ESSENTIAL for us to reach our goal.
Answer 3. COMBINING both VIDYA and AVIDYA gives us greater DARKNESS !! We need to scrub off the SLIME OF IGNORANCE from ourselves by seeing the SELF as ALL PERVADING and the ONLY PRESENCE in this universe. We need to see this SELF AS US and as all SENTIENT BEINGS and NON-SENTIENT OBJECTS, in the world. We need to see the WORLD as a SUPER-IMPOSITION on the ADHISTHAANA or SUBSTRATUM, the SELF. We need to experience the BRAHMA-SATYAM and JAGAN-MITHYA !! Unless the ishaa vaasya idam sarvam is achieved, we will not have reached our goal in life.

In answer 2. A sentence has been missed out in the printed version. It should read,BY COMBINING VIDYA AND AVIDYA, THE UPANISHAD WANTS US TO GET GREATER RESULTS THAN THE SUM OF THE INDIVIDUAL RESULTS OF EACH.
This sentence should come after the first line of answer 2.

  1. Here,Vidya= Upasana;Avidya = not upasana or karma.
  2. Only karma gives freedom from impulsive actions & pitru loka, svarga loka after death.Only Upasana gives maha,Jana,tapa,Satya loka.Vidya & avidya combined to give maximum possible result( within ignorance ).
  3. Maximum result is oneness with deity+ siddhis+ lifetime of 1 Kalpa. Inspite of so much efforts individuality (Agyana) is still there , also one has greater pleasure & attachment. It comes to an end( even though for long time)Ishavasya idam sarvam liberates here & now permanently easily.

  1. Sambhuti upasana/hiranyagarbha/karya brahman/vyakta/ -starts with I am hiranyagarbha Asambhuti upasana/ Ishwara /karana brahman/avyakta -Starts with I am Prakriti Aditya Mandala Purusha the cause behind the sun is worshipped as both.Ends with oneness with deity.
  2. Sambhuti gives the result of oneness with hiranyagarbha + SiddhisAsambhuti Upasana gives result of Sayujya mukti (oneness with Ishwara) + all powers except creation ,maintenance ,destruction.Combination gives maximum result of Prakriti Laya.
  3. The maximum result is Prakriti Laya like sleeping here itself for KalpaEg: King MuchukundaThere is no universe for them so individuality suppressed but not erased completely.It is in realm of ignorance.It also ends inspite of so much efforts.Whereas Ishavasya Idam Sarvam destroys our individuality while living liberating us here & now.

What does the upaniṣad refer to as vidyā and avidyā in verses 9 to 11?


Vidya - Upasana
Avidya - Karma (not Vidya)


Why does the upaniṣad ask the practitioner to combine vidyā and avidyā?


To get greater benefit which is to upgrade oneself from animosity to humanity and enjoy a sense of relative immortality till the end of kalpa.


What is the maximum result gained by combination of vidyā and avidyā?


The maximum result will be devaatmabhaav and attainment of higher lokas like goloka, shivaloka or satyaloka..


How does it compare to the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1?


Karma and Upasana need action after knowing (and the results are limited), while nothing to be done after knowing
īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam. 'Knowing' only can end the ignorance and repeated cycles of birth and death.


What does the upaniṣad refer to as sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā in verses 12 to 14?


Sambhuti Upasana - hiranyagarbha, karya-brahma, vyakrita, vyakta (manifest), vinaash (despite being nectar - this also ends), born


Asambhuti - Prakriti, Maya, Kaaran-Brahma, avyakta (unmanifest), Ishwara, unborn, Aakash (that which gives space), unborn


Why does the upaniṣad ask the practitioner to combine sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā?


To get the maximum result, which is one crosses over death (mrityu) - one becomes one with Hiranyagarbha and one will lead a life of great capacity with lots of material benefits because limited ways of human thinking are given up.


What is the maximum result gained by combination of sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā? How does it compare to the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1?


One will be blessed with all siddhis (anima etc), aishvarya etc; union with Hiranyagarbha or one reaches till Brahmaloka or one reaches the prakriti laya and can remain immortal till the end of kalpa.


However, all this will keep one in the realm of ignorance only, hence, considered insignificant. It is nothing as compared to brahma-vidya.

Hari Om,


  1. The upaniṣad refer vidyā as Upāsanā and avidyā is karma in verse 9 to 11.

  3. The maximum result gained by combination of vidyā and avidyā is it will give sayujya mukti in brahma lokah which is relative immortaliy till the end of one kalpa. This result though maximum for vidyā and avidyā it will end when the kalpa ends and one is not freed from the darkness of ignorance. In comparison the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1 is having gained Ātma vidya the fact that the Self is Me alone puts an end to ignorance, delusion of individuality ends which removes all sorrows and there is complete peace and fulfillment here and now while living and one is freed from all future embodiments, the cycle of birth and death ends.

  4. Sambhuti-upāsanā means upāsanā of Karya Brahma/ Hiranyagarbha and asambhuti-upāsanā means upāsanā of Kārana Brahma/Prakriti in verses 12 to 14.

  6. The maximum result gained by combination of sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā is relative immortality till end of kalpa or prakriti laya till end of kalpa. But the darkness of ignorance remains. In comparison the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam is that having gained Ātma vidya the fact that the Self is Me alone puts an end to ignorance, delusion of individuality ends, removes all sorrows, complete happiness, peace and fulfillment is realized here and now while living and one is freed from all future embodiments, the cycle of birth and death ends.

  1. What does the upaniṣad refer to as vidyā and avidyā in verses 9 to 11?

ANSWER:Vidya referes to upasana and avidya refers to karma.

2. Why does the upaniṣad ask the practitioner to combine vidyā and avidyā?

ANSWER:The karma and upasana has to be combined together to get the maximum results. If a person (a sakami purusha), does only karma then it will yield a separate result, whereas a person does only upasana, then he gets a different result. In order to get a better higher result, both karma and upasana are prescribed to be done together.

Also only when karma and upasana are done together, chittha shuddhi and chittha ekagrata are obtained which is a seed for Brahma vidya.

3. What is the maximum result gained by combination of vidyā and avidyā?

ANSWER:The maximum result that is obtained from karma and upasana together is

  • the death of the svabhavika karma (which means the animalistic instinctive response to the situation to a disciplined life) while living and
  • getting the other siddhis like anima,mahima, lafhima, garima, prapti, prakamyam and vashitvam.
  • After the death reaching the Hiranyagarbha, by the Devata jnana, Devatabhava (union with the Sutratma) is obtained, which is relatively immortal.

How does it compare to the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1?
ANSWER:
The result of the first verse is permanent, total purnatvam/ knowledge, attained which there is no more samsara or the effects of the samsara.
Whereas in these 3 shlokas 9, 10, 11, we understand that the mukthi is as well not a permanent one, whereas it is only a relative mukti.

Upanisad asks the practitioner to combine vidya and avidya for getting the maximum benefit of both karma and upasana put together


What is the maximum result gained by combination of vidyā and avidyā? How does it compare to the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1?
Maximum result gained by vidya and avidya, ie karma and upasana is that karma makes you human with nobility and great achievement and upasana gives one the immortality of the embodiment - till pralaya.
it is not the immortality gained by atma jnana. it is nothing compared to atma jnana as it is all in the realm of matter.


4.What does the upaniṣad refer to as sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā in verses 12 to 14?
sambhuti upasana is where one worships the karya brahma (hiranyagarbha) /born and attains oneness with it.

5.Why does the upaniṣad ask the practitioner to combine sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā?
Again to get maximum result.


6.What is the maximum result gained by combination of sambhuti and asambhuti-upāsanā? How does it compare to the result of īśāvāsyam idaṁ sarvam enumerated in verse 1?
Sambhuti - worship as aham hiranyagarbha - (result of which is aishwarya and sidhis and and going to brahma loka)
asambhuti - worship as aham prakriti - which is bhava pradana - (result of which is prakriti laya - relaxed till endless time where no karma will wake one up).


combination of sambhuti upasana and asambhuti upasana is again nothing as it is still in the realm of maya and leads one to blinding darkness.
jeeva is still suffering as light has not yet dawned. Only solution is Know one's True Self.
