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.

Shubh Diwali!!!

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

It is the time of Deepavalli/Diwali once more! The festival of lights is not only celebrated by Hindus, but also by Jainis and Sikhs. In the Christian faith, the festival of Hallows (All Saints) takes place at a similar time and is often marked by the lighting of lanterns in pumpkins on the evening before (Halloween)...though this has mutated somewhat into a commercial, non-spiritual activity. Slightly later in the year comes Hannukah, the Jewish festival of lights. 

As the nights darken in the Northern hemisphere, where all these traditions arose, it is not surprising to find light is the connecting factor.

Whichever tradition you follow, may light be yours now and forever!
