Doss, thanks for sharing.  Personally, I don't see the monad as just a
I see it as G de P described it--a consciousness center.  We don't have
to wait until the next manvantara, or even the next life to experience
this.  A little meditation is all we need.  Just think of consciousness
without any attributes or characteristics--pure or naked consciousness--
and you pretty much have the idea.  As long as you hold onto concepts
you won't ever experience pure consciousness.
