It is to S'ankara’s everlasting glory that he...

points out, through unimpeachable reasoning, the 
spiritual nature of the world and the individual 
souL S'ankara takes every opportunity to insist 
that the true essence of man and the universe is 
Existence- Knowledge- Bliss Absolute. It is only 
when the individual sees a difference between Brah- 
man and himself and the universe that he becomes 
a victim of fear, suffering, and misery. The 
characterization of deluding names and forms as 
maya, and the injunction to renounce the unreal 
as a means to realization of Truth, are not new 
ideas of S'ankara’s but are both explicit and 
implicit in the Upanishads.
