ADVENTURES IN ADVAITA VEDANTA...


Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..

THE ADVENTURE

HARI OM!
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!

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

June is the birthday month of HH Pujya Guru-ji Swami Tejomayananda (Guru-ji). The entries here for the month will be from his words.

God is love and happiness. If God is everywhere then why is there unhappiness in the world?

Air is everywhere, yet asthma patients gasp for air. Some are even known to die without air. The trouble is with the person not with the air. Sunlight is everywhere, yet the blind person does not see. Even when we feel the heat of the sun, its light cannot be seen. Similarly, even though God is happiness and everywhere, because of spiritual ignorance we do not see that.

Whatever glimpses of joy we experience are due to His all-pervading presence alone. But because of the veil of ignorance, man is deluded and becomes unhappy.

We say…God is everywhere, but do we believe this? We are not convinced; these are someone else’s words.

The slightest pain or sorrow shakes us to the core. We plead "GOD WHY ME?"

Have faith in:
your convictions
the Scriptures
God
Then effortlessly see him everywhere

…in the family

…in the workplace

…in the garden

…in the slums

…in sadness

…in gladness

Know for certain that whatever happens is for the best that is the path to God and therein lies eternal happiness.
