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!

Showering Blessings

Hari OM

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

Adi Shankara became a monk at a very young age. The story goes that one day, he went begging for his food as was the custom, and arrived at the hut of a very poor Brahmin woman. The woman had no food at home except an Amla fruit (gooseberry), and she gave this to Adi Shankara. He was so overwhelmed by her generosity and so moved by her poverty that he extemporaneously composed and sang the Kanakadhara Stotram in front of the woman's hut.  This prayer instantly invoked the Goddess Mahalakshmi, who rained down a shower of gold for the woman. Each piece of gold was shaped like a gooseberry.
