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.

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

This week there was a confluence of the texts being read. This happens throughout Vedantic study. One can be going along nicely with one and then another, but ultimately as there is a common goal, there are bound to be plateaus upon which all will rest and, if handled well, they will do so together as these have done. It is not something which can be planned. It is somehow built into the flow of the teaching and cannot properly be explained. It is one of the 'magics' of Sanskrit culture and reading.

However, it is rather lovely that as we approach a significant festival which a great deal of the world recognises in one way or another - even those who claim atheism will celebrate Christmas, if only for the gathering of family and friends and values of life being reinforced - that each of the four books being studied at the moment have given us very deep/high vibration moments to sit with and contemplate. Each of them saying in their own style the exact same thing… that there is Unity in Existence and that it throbs with the vibration of that Existence, even when we live in our discrete and individualised little selves. Perhaps today would be a good day to review the last four posts again and draw out the essence of each - seek the common thread and sit with it a while.

Shanti. Shanti. Shanti.
