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.

Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality.

Having concluded a more focused exploration of the BMI chart, do you have it firmly in your mind now? Test yourself right now, no looking, say it out loud starting from the top….

Did you manage it? Did you say it as the acronyms only, or did you say out the whole words? Do it again just now with the whole words, LOUDLY... all together now starting from 
How was that? Continue practicing out loud each day, at least five times with the letters only and then five with the words. As you recite the words, take your time and remember something about the meaning of them in relation to this chart and the connections they make. Give a little thought to how this chart conveys the essence of how we live. You can vary daily practice by writing it out the chart on a piece of paper or in a notebook. A new one each day until it becomes second nature.

It doesn't matter whether you read scripture or even subscribe to the notion of a spiritual self. This chart helps us to better understand the emotional and operational aspects of being a human being. Deceptively simple - the complications come from…

...did you say it? Yes, the vaasanas. The tendencies inherited from who knows where. Those things which pertain only to our own character, but which, in truth, we all experience. In your reading here at Aatmaavrajanam, you will find this chart useful to refer back to when learning more about the Vedantic point of view - and also come to realise how it is universally applicable. Vedanta, more than any other spiritual philosophy, identifies, codifies, specifies who we are, what we do, why we do it and how we can tidy ourselves up.  No matter which philosophy we opt for as our dominant guide, however, the BMI chart is a gift of self-understanding!
