ADVENTURES IN ADVAITA VEDANTA...


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

THE ADVENTURE

HARI OM!
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!

Hold Tight!

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

A short but pertinent fable to start the year. Think on how this applies to commitment to everything one undertakes in life.

The Boy and the Nettles

A BOY was stung by a Nettle.  He ran home and told his Mother, saying, "Although it hurts me very much, I only touched it gently."  

"That was just why it stung you," said his Mother.  "The next time you touch a Nettle, grasp it boldly, and it will be soft as silk to your hand, and not in the least hurt you." 

Whatever you do, do with all your might.

If what you have read has made you think, tell me why. If you are wondering, others are too, so ask that question. If you have a doubt, let it out.
