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.

Questions Questions Questions

Hari OM

Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.

Part one was last week, now Swami Ishwarananda's talk continues...the first, short one, is the completion of the actual talk; note how Swami-ji chants - it is all from memory! It is a discipline of those who study at gurukula to memorise all texts.  Some of us fell very short in that skill.

The second video comes with a difference, that here you will now experience what it is to ask questions and have them answered by a master. Vedanta encourages questioning, be it simple or advanced. The questions themselves will indicate to the guru whether in fact the shishya was present in the class!!! The use of analogy and short stories are used to full effect in order to bring clarity. (The first two questions are a little 'hazy' but do persevere, for Swami-ji gives some excellence insight.)
