Some people write that the Brahman is the ultimate state of consciousness and everything we touch smell or observe are nothing but the different manifestation of this Brahman. However I am very troubled by the fact that there is no argument provided for this. On what authority should I accept this description of the Brahman? Why has this idea convinced the ancients such that even today we are reading their teachings?
I believe that the conclusion "Brahman is consciousness" is based upon a very human experience and that is subjectivity and consciousness just like we sculpt and draw images of the Gods in our own image i.e. human form/animal form. Can someone shed light on the matter?
