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!

Monday is AUM-day; in search of meditation

These articles first appeared on Yamini-amma's personal blog. They were designed to promote deeper thinking on values, personal growth, Vedantic understanding - and to prompt conversation. Use them for contemplation either before or after your regular meditative practice.

Virtue

We are all born with some talent or other, attributes and qualities which given proper attention, will make of us better human beings, able to contribute to society and provide for a positive life for ourselves.

No matter the circumstances in which we are born, it is possible, if we make our minds up to it, to expand our horizons. It takes work, it takes opportunities and the ability to grab them. Time and again it has been proven by people all over the world that self-effort, determination and a desire for better can drive one to substantial changes and improved conditions in life. There are, of course, those who are not born with the appropriately strong guna for this uplift. It is then up to those of us who have, to reach out and lend a hand.

Neither should our gunas be taken for granted. It pays to keep checking in, to ensure our growth is continuous and adding value to who we are and the impact we have on life.


"Growth is a spiral process, doubling back on itself, 
reassessing and regrouping."

(Julia Margaret Cameron)
