Centuries and centuries pass, and only then does someone happen to be both, but then his language will become more difficult for you to understand. A bhakta cannot understand the language of a gyani; a gyani cannot understand the language of a bhakta ~ but if a person is both, masses will not understand him at all. In itself, each language is difficult ~ and when the language of the path of knowledge and the language of love become one, it becomes impossible to understand him because he will continuously appear to contradict himself and you will simply be confused. What does he mean? This is rare, and whenever it happens, that man is misunderstood completely. This Upanishad belongs to such a man who is both." Bhagwan is also such a man who is both ~ a lover and a knower, and so much more besides. "The very name of this Upanishad is 'Atma Pooja ~ Worship of the Self'. It is absurd! Worship of yourself? Worship is always of someone else! But here you are the worshipped. Worship loses all meaning, and he is continuously speaking in paradoxes. He is mixing two different realms." Bhagwan himself is also a great mixer and this volume is well~named The Ultimate Alchemy in that it is a verbal manifestation of Bhagwan's alchemical process. "This Upanishad was neglected; no one has commented upon it. It is one of the most neglected Upanishads and one of the most beautiful. To comment on it is difficult because commentators are, again, of two types ~ those who believe in the path of knowledge and the followers of the path of love. So this rishi of the 'Atma Pooja Upanishad' really belongs to no camp. And because of this, this Upanishad has remained neglected, uncommented upon." Bhagwan Shree also belongs to no camp ~ or to all~ Zen, Tantra, Yoga, Sufism etc. To say something about him is to divide, and he is one, always. So he is perhaps the first person to comment upon this Upanishad in such a wav that one can feel the unitive sense beyond the apparent contradictions, and dissolve into the oneness of being beyond the dualities of mind.
