I am trying very hard to understand the conceptualizations of your teachings, but I am struggling. No doubt, that is partly because I lack sufficient experiential background to provide a context for the conceptual model, but I am trying nonetheless. My current confusion is as follows - As I understand your blogpost above, Atman (the Self) is not vijñâna (consciousness). In the subsequent blogpost, you contend that Vedanta (presumably Advaita Vedanta?) is only insignificantly different from "Buddhism". My understanding, though, is that the Upanishads and Vedanta claim that the Self IS consciousness/awareness, so I am confused.

Can you clarify?

I am sincerely interested in understanding your model, and look forward to hearing back from you.
