Abhinavesa and Beyond

Karma is not the truth. Karma is an appearance in the truth. Karma appears to be the truth because people believe in because. This belief is one of the primal beliefs of avidya. Gaudapada uses the sanskrit word, abhinavesa, to describe it.

“Abhiniveśa is not merely a persistent belief, but an intense mental preoccupation with an ardent faith in a false knowledge sustained and nurtured by a totally laughable ignorance.” ~Chinmayananda

Causality is the fool of ten thousand koans and the liar behind every paradox. The universe is the cause and the universe is its result, crow caws the causelessness of crow. Not only is the absolute beyond causality, it's beyond beyond.
