Braltmam, Consiousness, (Cit) and matter (Acit) have always been the subject for discussion in philosophy, religion and science. What is the nature of this Brahmam principle? Is Brahman: the cause for the entire universe? Is Brahnian a static entity or a conscious entity? What is this Universe? What is the relatrionship of Brahmam to Absolute Consciousness? What is nature, Prakriti, and what is its relationship to Jivathman? Vedanta addresses each of these questions in a logical fashion. The great thinkers of all countries have tried their best to understand the true inner meaning of Absolute Consciousness and matter in order to establish their mutual relationship. Scientists and philosophers have advanced many theories to explain their ideas and conceptions and have arrived at different conclusions. This essay is an intellectual scrutiny of "Brahman" from the point of view of Vedanta Shastra and Sub-Atomic Particular theory. Some of the different names of Brahmam are Absolute Consciousness, World Thinker, Punlsha, Paramatma,Total Reality, God, lshuara, Absolute Truth, Bhagavan, and Athnam.
