Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..


Here is a place to linger, to let your intellect roam. Aatmaavrajanam is being written as a progressive study and, as such, can be read like a book. Anyone arriving at any time can simply start at the very first post and work their way through at their own pace. Please take time to read the info tabs and ensure you don't miss a post, by subscribing to the blog. Interaction is welcomed. Don't be a spectator - be a participator!

Boxing Day....??? Get Out of The Box!

'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general page reviewing the week so far…

For those who celebrated other festivals during the past week (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa…) Blessings to you all and may joy and peace be yours.

As we cover the introduction to the fundamentals of Vedanta on Workings-days, it is surely seeming esoteric.  This is where trust in yourself to be able to absorb and comprehend must be firm. Each must take away what they can from each reading, not be afraid to re-read, be prepared to voice doubts and ask questions. Not everyone can learn at the same pace and for much of the time, especially in early stages, any knowledge gained will be held in context with our immediate circumstances and current level of thinking. All of this is valid. Education, if it is working properly, helps you to drop away all that is irrelevant and misleading - not through indoctrination or by stopping you thinking, but by encouraging better and deeper analysis, release of fixed ideas, acceptance of possibilities and funding the wonder that carries you through to experience for yourselves and prove (or disprove) accordingly. Worry not about what you do not know - just know that you can know and, like a new pair of shoes, it simply takes some walking in them to feel more comfortable!

On that note, another vid on quantum for you….. It is entertaining and at a later point, there is the introduction of the possibility of viewing things beyond space and time. The closing comments are particularly interesting. Professor Rudolph appears to require the assistance of mind-altering liquids to delve into the mysteries and admits that even this falls short of providing answers…. For Vedantic 'Physicists', Meditation is the recommended 'mind alterer'!!!
