Yes, it is with this fundamental question that a child enters the World. It has been deeply researched that, the first sound uttered by any new born child, the World over is , “KO AHAM” which in Sanskrit shall mean “WHO AM I?”.
As a child grows up, in the midst of the Mundane world , it losses track of this fundamental quest.
According to a story from the Upanishads, a disciple asked his Guru,
“ko aham (who am I?)”. The Guru replied, “ TAT TWAM ASI ,” (YOU ARE THAT). When the disciple asked what “that” was , he was told to find out. Then he starts his enquiry.“
“Am I this body?” and on reflecting on it, he realises that he cannot be the body, but something else. He also understands that Mind is sometimes sorry, sometimes happy, attention is unsteady; “Budhi” (Intellect) is busy only in analysing. Following the process of negation , he concludes that he must be that which remains unaffected despite so many changes and which is fundamental for all the functions. His Guru then tells him that he is “IMMORTAL SPIRIT” and he should Meditate and become One with the SPIRIT.
We find in the Ramayana, instances wherein Rama is puzzled , about the happenings around Him. He poses his problem to Sage Vasishta , as to the purpose of Life, on Death etc. Sage Vasishta reveals to Lord Rama the answer in about 32,000 Verses, called as “YOGA VASISHTA” , which is the part of the great epic “RAMAYANA”.
This fundamental question also troubled Prince Sidharth, who renounced everything and searched for the TRUTH and finally got enlightenment and became “BUDHA”.
