Quick Reference

A concept which appears in (e.g.) the Maitrāyaṇī Upaniṣad (6.22) and in Mīmāṃsaka thought, but finds its most sophisticated development in the work of the grammarian Bhartṛhari (1), according to whom the śabda-brahman (the ‘eternal verbum’ or ‘word-essence’) is the single principle and ultimate reality out of which the entire universe has evolved. See also Bhartṛhari (1).
