Advaita Semantics

For some, the reflection of consciousness is called consciousness, and consciousness is the reflection of awareness, awareness being another name for pure consciousness, both being other names for parabrahman.

Another name for parabrahman is nirguna brahman, the noumenon, the absolute, unmanifest, pure consciousness, or shiva. Another name for the manifest is saguna brahman, isvara, consciousness, the reflection of consciousness, universal consciousness, I am, or shakti.

Further, sometimes parabrahman is called brahman and saguna brahman is called brahman. Sometimes isvara is called krishna or vishnu or some other god. And tattvamasi is I am that. As for atman, it’s brahman.
