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…

Yesterday, the scientific nature of Vedanta was expounded. India is known, artistically, for mandalas. They have figured in the cultural expression for centuries, likely tens of centuries. They are mathematical and are expressions of the universe and how energy manifests through the human experience.

How wonderful, beautiful, awe-inspiring is it then, to have discovered this little expression of a part of the universe close to us. It is impossible to watch this and not think of the Rsis all those timeless years past meditating and visualising the cosmos and how it works. Was it from such as that, a perception beyond our understanding, that mandalas arose? Speculation is pointless. Let us merely enjoy this image and allow ourselves to be amazed.

Eight Earth years are roughly equal to thirteen Venus years, meaning the two planets approximately trace out this pattern with five-fold symmetry as they orbit the Sun. (With thanks to 'Reddit')
