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.

Gurudev on Guru

Hari OM

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

As this month is the fullest focus of all from Chinmaya Mission upon Gurudev, each remaining 'Storyday' of May will be taken from the book "Unto Him", which is sadly now out of print. There is, though, a wonderful group of books published by Chinmaya West, called the Mananam Series, which is highly recommended for reading about Gurudev and the mission in general.

Gurudev wrote;

Guru is not a person, he is a personality, an institution. He is the radio through which the Lord contacts the student. When a student meets his Teacher, it is always a miracle. In fact, it is Love at first sight. He is immediately attracted to him and his words ring a bell. Another speaker may speak better, but only his Teacher will attract him.

If, in case you get the rare privilege of meeting such a Master, and you happen to really understand a little of what he says, then progress has to happen. It is unfailing. It is very productive. Whenever anyone meets his Teacher, it is always a miracle.

If, in case you are benefitted, do not forget that the Teacher was brought to you by Iishvara, total vaasanas, of which a part were yours; and remember there is no difference between God and the Guru, the corporeal entity before you.

Therefore be on the lookout when you meet a Master… Search! Seek!! Fulfill!!!
