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.

Spiritual Serendipity

Hari OM

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

Whilst away on the sojourn through a few of the United States and Canada, there was one very spiritual moment... that's a little unfair, for there was lots of spiritual engagement with everyone I met and everywhere I looked. However, this particular - and impromptu - visit which took place in Cincinnati gave a chance for pure and total reflection, surrender and spiritual release. What has this to do with Story-day? Well, the story of the place itself… please feel free to click on the image to 'biggify' it for reading.

The steps referred to are many and very, very steep. Without the effort of ascending them, simply entering the church still brought such a sense of stillness and peace it was almost overwhelming. This place was not on the planned itinerary, but my hosts stopped suddenly and thought it worthwhile. It was! It seemed to be a pilgrimage just to enter there.

It is a special place. If you are in the States, make an effort to visit. 

If you are not in the States but plan to go… make an effort to visit! You will feel only Love, Love and yet more Love.

The images give only a fraction of the impression left upon this heart.

The top of the steps of pilgrimage... and on arriving, the eyes are drawn up the frontispiece of the church...
