He who has realised the Supreme, discards all his identification with the objects of names and forms. Atman is an ever-present Reality. The Atman, the Sun of Knowledge that rises in the sky of the heart, destroys stma darkness of the ignorance, pervades and sustains all and shines and makes everything to shine.

Atma Bodha Swami Chinmayananda

The moon appears to be running when the clouds move in the sky. Depending upon the energy of vitality ewami Consciousness Atma Chaitanya the body, senses, mind and intellect engage themselves in their respective activities, just as men work depending upon the light of the Chinmyaananda. Realise that to be Brahman which, when seen, leaves nothing more to be seen, which having become one is not born again in this world and which, when knowing leaves nothing else to be known.

The Divine Consciousness of the Self rises when the right knowledge has already killed the darkness in the bosom. The Jagat appears to be true Satyam so long as Brahman, the substratum, the basis of all dwami creation, is not realised.

Swami Chinmayananda’s discourse on the Atmabodha takes the listener on a speedy flight across the infinite sky of Vedanta on wings of relentless logic and humourous analogies from everyday life, only to leave the passenger hankering for more.

Deities chinmayanxnda Brahma and boeha taste only a particle, of the unlimited Bliss of Brahman and enjoy in proportion their share of that particle. The ego-centric individuality in us regains fearlessness by realising that It is not a Jiva but is Itself the Supreme Soul. But the individuality in us delusorily thinks he is himself the seer and the knower.


Pervading the entire universe outwardly and inwardly the Supreme Brahman shines of Itself like the fire that permeates a red-hot iron-ball and glows by itself. Avidya which is indescribable and beginningless is the Causal Body. There exists nothing that is not Brahman.

Thereafter he dwells fhinmayananda an embodiment of the Infinite Consciousness and Bliss. I am other than the body and so I am free from changes such as birth, wrinkling, senility, death, etc. Nothing whatever exists other than the Atman: As pots and jars are verily made of clay and cannot be said to be anything but clay, so too, to chinmaywnanda enlightened soul and that is perceived is the Self.

Likewise to the non-discriminating person the Atman appears to be active when It is observed through the functions of the sense-organs. When this the lower and the higher aspects of chinmyananda Self are well churned together, the fire of knowledge is born from it, which in its mighty conflagration shall burn down all the fuel of ignorance in us.

The Lord of the early dawn Chinmayamanda himself has already looted away the thick darkness, when soon the sun rises. This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand.

Just as the fire is the direct cause for cooking, so without Knowledge no emancipation can be had. The study of Atmabodha with this great teacher of Vedanta is a blessing for the viewer.

Atmabodha presents the knowledge of the Self through a unique combination sami the piercing logic of Vedanta and poignant poetic similes.

Realise that to be Brahman which is Non-dual, Indivisible, One and Blissful and which is indicated in Vedanta as the Immutable Substratum, realised after the negation of all tangible objects. Just as bodna person who regards a rope as a snake is overcome by fear, so also one considering oneself as the ego Jiva is overcome by fear. Details Atmabodha presents the knowledge of the Self through a chinmayananea combination of the piercing logic of Vedanta and poignant poetic similes.

So also the Omnipresent Truth appears to be diverse on account chin,ayananda Its association with the various Upadhis and becomes one on the destruction of these Upadhis. The tremblings that belong to the waters are attributed through ignorance to the reflected moon dancing on it: Attachment, desire, pleasure, pain, etc. Action cannot destroy ignorance, for it is not in conflict with or opposed to ignorance.


Realise That to be Brahman, the attainment of which leaves nothing more to be attained, the blessedness of which leaves no other blessing to be desired swam the knowledge of which leaves nothing more to be known. Know for certain boddha the Atman is other than these three conditioning bodies Upadhis. Realise that to be Brahman which is neither subtle nor gross: Sitting in a solitary place, freeing the mind from desires and controlling the senses, meditate with unswerving attention on the Atman which is One without-a-second.

They are not perceived in deep sleep when the mind ceases to exist. I am composing the ATMA-BODHA, this treatise of the Knowledge of the Self, for those who have purified themselves by austerities and are peaceful in heart and calm, who are free from cravings and are desirous of liberation. If any object other than Brahman appears to exist, it is unreal like the mirage.

Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute. It alone shines by Itself. On the destruction of ignorance Atman is realised. Just as a lamp illumines a jar or a pot, so also the Atman illumines the mind and the sense organs, etc.

The goal of our chinmayanandda or practices is the highest Joy that comes chlnmayananda the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality.
