Brahman in the Upanishads

Dr. Durgeswar Kalita

Dr. Durgeswar Kalita
The word “brahman” is derived from the root brh or brahm together with the suffix “man”. Both the roots brh and brmh mean to grow, to be great to increase, to expand etc. The suffix “man” denotes unlimitedness. Hence the derivative meaning of the word “brahman” is that which is the greatest of all,or which has grown unlimitedly. If the meaning of the word is analysed then it becomes clear that brahman is nitya – suddha – buddha – mukta – svabhava (i,e. eternal, pure, conscious and free). Hence Brahman is the ultimate Reality the Absolute.
