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.

Ch-ch-ch-choices 3

Hari Om

Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality and become more congruent within our personality.

Here is third in the TED talks series on different views on the subject of choice.  This is a very interesting take on making choice - whilst the subject matter is held very much to the world of objects, it does not take too much of a leap to think in terms of the higher philosophical choices we need to make in terms of our values, which are mentioned here. Vedantically, we are beginning to learn that our choices are as much driven by our vaasanas as the surrounding circumstances to those choices. By making the choices we do, as Ms Chang here states, we 'write our own script'. Using the terminology of Vedanta, we 'etch our own vaasanas'.
