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.

The Why

Hari Om
Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality and become more congruent within our personality.

Very often we go through our days in rather a helter-skelter manner and at the end of each we wonder what it is that took us past certain things, or met certain people, or faced whatever hurdles. We try to analyse each thing - particularly if it is negative; we allow things to 'fester' in our minds and bring us unrest and angst. Generally, we direct our enquiry at the 'other' of any situation, or, if we do accept our part in any play, seek the angles which will best support our defence, protect our ego-self.                  

There are two basic principles of philosophy which can broaden our self-understanding and how it is that we have to deal with consequences.  Recently, Yamini-amma wrote a series of articles presenting an overview of Vedanta to a wider audience. Two of them cover the points as mentioned - your choice to click through and read them - then also your choice to take in the knowledge and use it as a mirror for reflection.

Ahangkaara - ego

Karma - action and consequence. 

There are, of course, many other aspects which build our personality, but these basics are essential to know.
