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.

St Ignatius of Loyola; Prayer

Hari OM

Sounds-day is for listening/viewing a variety of devotional items from and for all ages and traditions.

Thoughts and the process of thinking is a large part of our study in Advaita, for it is postulated that the world and the life we have in it is a reflection of those thoughts. St Ignatius drew similar conclusions. Thoughts which lift us from our sorrow and keep us focused on the healthy aspects of living are much more desirable than those thoughts which have us feeling frustrated, lacking, and so forth. In Vedantic philosphy the thoughts which lift us spiritually are called shreyas and those which take us along redundant and wasteful paths are called preyas. Ignatius labelled these as Consolation and Desolation. Here is a short video on this.
