Rishi Vasishta: Ishta Guru of Lord Ram.
Vasistha Muni was a revered sage and spiritual teacher in Hinduism, who is believed to have been the Guru or spiritual preceptor of Lord Rama, one of the most revered deities in Hinduism. He is believed to have authored several important Hindu scriptures, including the Yoga Vasistha, a text that explores the nature of consciousness and the path to liberation.
In the Yoga Vasishta, NON-DUALITY or Advaita is one of the central teachings that emphasizes the ultimate reality of the universe as a single, indivisible consciousness.
The text explains that the duality of the world, including the perception of a separate self, is an illusion created by the mind. It teaches that the true nature of the self is pure consciousness, which is identical to the ultimate reality of the universe, known as Brahman. The practice of Yoga, according to the Yoga Vasishta, involves recognizing and experiencing this non-dual reality through self-inquiry, meditation, and detachment from the transient world of appearances.
