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.

Nitya Shuddhaaya - Eternal Purity

Hari OM

Sounds-day is for listening/viewing a variety of devotional items from and for all ages and traditions.

Continuing the focus on Lord Shiva. Calling the name of the Lord itself will bring purification. Om NamaH Shivaaya...

In Vedic chanting, the meter (rhythm) is of immense value and the structuring can be kept simple (for children and learners) through to highly complex.  The Ghana-paatha is considered the most intricate of chanting forms, as it incorporates others as well as working in almost a 'spiral' in upon itself.  The 'cchandas' (meter) holds a spiritual value beyond the mere words and syllables of the mantra. In purist tradition, of course, no music as such is included.  However, for the untrained ear, Srimati Uma Mohan-ji's offerings, keeping chanting tradition but with musical underpinnings, gives a wonderful introduction. Do now enjoy her version of Sri Shiva Mantra in Ghana-paatha cchandas.
