This "I amness" itself is the Mula-Maya, the Primary Illusion" - Nisargadatta Maharaj

Dear readers,

This is a post to provide a good resource for those interested in Advaita Vedanta- the philosophy of Self-inquiry, Knowledge & Non-dualism.

It will be continually updated with information, links and You tube videos.

An introductory article on advaita in the context of Yoga and Sankhya metaphysics will be added  very soon.

Gurus are many but Truth is ONE


Arunachala – Jnana Sthana (abode Siva, fire & wisdom)

Five Stanzas to Arunachala

(Prayer for Wisdom & Realisation of the non-dual “I”)

1. Ocean of Nectar, Full of Grace, engulfing the universe in Thy Splendour! O Arunachala, the Supreme Itself! Be Thou the Sun and open the lotus of my heart in Bliss!

1.  O Arunachala! In Thee the picture of the Universe is formed has its stay, and is dissolved; this is the sublime Truth. Thou art the Inner Self, Who dancest in the Heart as “I”. Heart is Thy name, O Lord!

3. He who turns inwards with untroubled mind to search where the consciousness of “I” arises, realizes the Self, and dissolves in Thee O Arunachala! Like a river when is joins the ocean.

4. Abandoning the outer world, with mind and breath controlled, to meditate on Thee within, the Yogi sees Thy Light, O Arunachala! And finds his delight in Thee.

5. He who dedicates his mind to Thee, and seeing Thee, always beholds the Universe as Thy figure, he who at all times glorifies Thee and loves Thee as none other than the Self, he is the master without rival, being one with Thee and lost in Thy Bliss, O Arunachala!

“Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature… You will find all your negativity disarmed; your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly, like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your Absolute nature” – the Tibetan Book of the Living & Dying
