Question
Sir ,is brahman energy or consciousness?

Answer
Dear Sumit,

'Sarvam khalu idam Brahma' - Mandukya Upanishad

(all things here - Brahman)

Consciousness too is because of Brahman. Something has to exist to be conscious. Even you, yourself are Brahman and no other.

'Tat twam asi' - Chhandogya Upanishad
(You are that)

'Prajnanam Brahma' - Aitareya Upanishad

What exists is one, there is no second.

'Eko sad, dwiteeyo nasti' Katha Upanishad

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

Atheism

Expertise

All, especially about atheism in relation to Hinduism. Brahman in Hinduism is like a quantum field in which all things, space, and time, are constituted.

Experience

Went through all beliefs in Hinduism and Buddhism (polytheism, monotheism, monism, shaivism, vaishnavaism) to arrive at Advaita.
