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.

Sri Narada

Hari OM

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

Since we began study of Narada Bhakti Sutra on Workings-day, as promised, here is a synopsis of Sri Narada's own story, very sweetly done by ISKON ('Hare Krishnas'). Watching to the end you will find mention of a parampara. This relates to the lineal teaching tradition of the bhakti-vedanta movement; in Advaita Vedanta we have the parampara of Sri Siva (as Naaraayana), Sir Brahma (as Padmabhuva), Sage Vashistha, Shakti, Paraashara,  Sage (veda)Vyaasa, Shuka, Gaudapaada, Govinda Bhagavatpaada, Shankara Bhagavatpaada… then from Sri Shankara via his four disciples up to present day, our own Gurudev and Guruji who can lay claim via the Srinegeri Math (Saraswati name).
