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.

In His Own Words 3

Hari Om

'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…

This is the third in a series of short clips of Gurudev teaching. Today from Bhagavad Gita chapter two, the importance of maintaining a balanced view of life is impressed upon us. This relates to the keeping of the mind on higher things and accepting that the world of objects is, by nature impermanent, and all experiences within it are equally so. The term 'titiksha' is referred to - you will recall it is one of the shamaadhi-shatka-sampatti of the saadhana chatushtaya. Be stoic and steadfast as samsaara crashes and washes around you… listen for Gurudev's wonderful analogy!
