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.

Further Gems

Hari OM

Freedays continue sharing views from YAM's trip to CM Mumbai.

Another gem of the new setup called Pradeep, was the 'walkway to realisation'. The Mahaavaakyas having now been explained in a nutshell to you, there was also a physical representation on a boardwalk incline.

There are quotes and prompts for contemplation to help us understand what is involved in this process.

As stated, it is not merely an intellectual exercise, but a full-immersion experience.

There are warnings also, of the many hurdles and pitfalls along the way. No matter how adept one may become, there is danger right until that goal is at last attained. It can be quite easy to become overwhelmed with the amount of self-work which must be undertaken.

The aim is to purify oneself right down to the seed of each thought. A daily struggle!

The walkway also gave encouragement and hope.

At the top of the boardwalk, one turns around and can see more clearly. There is no clutter to one's vision, no distracting pattern or colour.
There is clarity.

This part of Pradeep also gave much joy.

The tie-in  to the teachings under way also added to this. 'Stuff' was getting stirred up. There was reminder of one's purpose, which may have gotten a bit crusted-over in the past three years.

There was also a sense of an ending and beginning. Exactly what that's about remains to be discovered!!!
