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.

On Responsibility

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

A quote of Gurudev's came to attention recently. It struck a chord… perhaps it will for you also.

"On an ashram there lived for devotees who were called Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. An important project came up and the Swami asked Everybody to do it efficiently. Everybody was sure somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, bot Nobody did it. Somebody got angry because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody blamed Somebody, when Nobody did what Anybody could have done…"

Have we not all experienced situations like this? Let each do their task and not be concerned with the tasks of others!
