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.

To Ride Life

Hari OM
'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…

As the leaders of the world's big nations posture and peck and primp and preen and use smoke and mirrors to befuddle the other, we would do well to remember that this is nothing new. History, it seems, re-enacts itself at least once every century. It is only necessary to look at any ancient scripture and there we will find tales of stretching territories, 'rightful' wars and defence. We will also read of diaspora, fleeing to foreign lands for food, shelter and safety.

There is nothing new in the world. Knowing this, we might also be inclined to think there is nothing we can do. However, the lesson of Sri Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita is quite the opposite. No matter that things keep on happening the way they do, the ultimate test of a human being is to be the very best of the species that it is possible to be. We can - we must - take responsibility for ourselves and our thoughts, words and deeds; attend to the duties laid out for us with humility and Love; seek always to keep Higher Purpose at the forefront of our minds and Service and Caring in our motivation for action. These are unifying factors in global society. 

Find your guidance where you will. Be sure to practice what is preached. Life will be the best it can be, then, no matter what comes.
