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.

A Little Trust

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

Sometimes we just need to remember the basics. Here are more of Guru-ji's words;

Faith plays a crucial role in life…
its power makes the impossible possible…
Though an important aspect of life,
its full meaning and implications are rarely appreciated.

Generally taken as a negative quality,
it implies lack of intellectual maturity.
It may appear as blind belief,
but culminates in the verification of what was believed.

Blind belief can neither be verified through experience nor logic.
Faith is verifiable.
The first time we perform an action it is with faith alone.
When we board a plane, we trust in the pilot’s ability.

So-called rationalists believe faith is opposed to reason.
IN FACT – reasoning itself is based on faith in the power of the intellect.
The whole scientific process rests on faith
in the apparatus used for various experiments.

Faith plays an important role in personal life…
Relationships are based on trust…
on faith in human nature and noble values.

In religion Faith plays a vital role.
There is faith in the existence of the One Reality.
Though not visible to the naked eye,
its existence as declared in the scriptures
is the direct experience of many masters.

Belief in their words is the initial step
to Know the Truth of our own Self.
Have faith in Faith.
It is the real wealth of man.

– – Swami Tejomayananda
