Introduction to Hindu Economic Principles

Principle of Advaita (Oneness)

For the nation of KAILASASM, many applications of these economic principles are primarily from the Agamas authored by Paramashiva, the original author of the science of yoga and enlightenment. The Agamas can be considered applied science based on the principles in the Vedas and the Upanishads – which is Advaita.  Ishavasya Upanishad says in its very first verse “Consciousness pervades everything”. 

While this may imply that consciousness is the primary reality, and the objects it manifests as are secondary reality, the Veda-Agamas does not imply that the material world should not be taken into account – only that the ultimate reality (paramarthika satya) cannot be ignored and has to be taken into consideration. Which is why Paramashiva discusses wealth and economics in the Agamas. He sees wealth as a core expression of enlightenment, and details a framework to create a superconscious society through an Agamic economy. 

Even sanyaas (monkhood), which means renunciation, means only renouncing one’s personal ties, but involves embracing and taking responsibility for the entire world [1].
