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. Please take time to read the info tabs and ensure you don't miss a post, by subscribing to the blog. Interaction is welcomed. Don't be a spectator - be a participator!

Application - that is what 'Workings-days' are about!

In other posts Q&As have been taking place for revision and focus. It is time to do the same for this day of the week - and of all of them 'Workingsday' ought to be exactly that! You have perhaps been reading this blog and gaining something from it, but how much work has actually been applied in all this time?

Let this first Workingsday review, then, be about your own self-assessment;
  1. Have you set up the workbook and taken notes?
  1. Have you set up a daily record for yourself? - if nothing else, at the end of each day, write down what you did well and what could be done better; introspection is an important part of self-improvement
  1. Do you at the very least chant the Gayatri mantra once each morning?
  1. Do you give thanks for your food before commencing every meal?... In truth, everything which is to be consumed ought to be offered in thanks first
  1. Do you remove shoes within the home and have you set up a corner (or a separate room) for you study and meditative practice?

These are very basic things for the early student of Vedanta!
