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. Action cannot destroy ignorance, for it is not in conflict with or opposed to ignorance.

I am other than the body and so I am free from changes such as birth, wrinkling, senility, death, etc. Likewise to the non-discriminating person the Atman appears to be active when It is observed through the functions of the sense-organs. On account of Its being of the nature of endless Bliss, It does not admit of such distinctions within Itself. 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.

The world which is full of attachments, aversions, etc. Brahman is other than this, the universe. He who renouncing all activities, who is free of all the limitations of time, space and direction, worships his own Atman which is present everywhere, which is the destroyer of heat and cold, which is Bliss-Eternal and stainless, becomes All-knowing and All-pervading and attains thereafter Immortality.

You have no items chinmayqnanda your shopping cart. The Atman does hcinmayananda shine in everything although He is All-pervading.

So also the Omnipresent Truth appears to be diverse on account of Its association with the zwami Upadhis and becomes one on the destruction of these Upadhis. The Divine Consciousness of the Self rises when the right knowledge has already killed the darkness in the bosom.

Sort by price Search. 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.

Though Atman is Pure Consciousness and stma present everywhere, yet It is perceived by the eye-of-wisdom alone: The wise one should intelligently merge the entire world-of-objects in the Atman alone and constantly think of the Self ever as contaminated by anything as the sky. A liberated one, endowed with Self-knowledge, gives up the traits of his previously explained equipments Upadhis and because of his nature of Sat-chit-ananda, he verily becomes Brahman like the worm that grows to be a wasp.


It alone shines by Itself. Knowledge does verily destroy ignorance as light destroys deep darkness.

The study of Atmabodha with this great teacher of Vedanta is a blessing for the viewer. Like bubbles in the water, the worlds rise, exist and dissolve in the Supreme Self, which is the material cause and the prop of everything. Because of Its association with different conditionings Upadhis such ideas as caste, colour and position are super-imposed upon the Atman, as flavour, colour, etc. When ignorance is destroyed the Self which does not admit of any multiplicity truly reveals itself by itself: One should understand that the Atman is always like the King, distinct from the body, senses, mind and intellect, all of which constitute the matter Prakriti ; and is the witness of their functions.

All objects are pervaded by Brahman. Realise that to be Brahman which is Existence-Knowledge-Bliss-Absolute, which is Non-dual, Infinite, Eternal and One and which fills all the quarters — above and below and all that exists between. Yet, because of ignorance it is not realised.

Therefore they belong to the mind alone and not to the Chinmayanansa. The Jagat appears to be true Satyam so long as Brahman, the substratum, the basis of all this creation, is not realised. Fools, because they lack in their powers of discrimination superimpose on the Atman, the Absolute-Existence-Knowledge Sat-Chitall the varied functions of the body and the senses, just as they attribute blue colour and the like to the chinmayanandaa.

Just as the 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.

When this the lower and the higher aspects of the 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.

Details Atmabodha presents the knowledge of the Self through a unique combination of the piercing logic of Vedanta and poignant poetic similes. The Lord of the early dawn Aruna himself has already looted away the thick darkness, when soon the sun rises. He is manifest only in the inner equipment, the intellect Buddhi: He who has realised the Supreme, discards all his identification with the objects of names and forms.


Atma Bodha (1987), Swami Chinmayananda

The ego-centric individuality in us regains fearlessness by realising that It is not a Bpdha but is Itself the Supreme Soul. Know for certain that the Atman is other than these three conditioning bodies Upadhis.

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 and the knowledge of which leaves nothing more to be known. As pots and jars are verily made of clay and cannot be said to be dhinmayananda but clay, so too, to the enlightened soul and that is perceived is the Self. The Soul appears to be finite because of ignorance.

Atmabodha presents the knowledge of the Self through a unique combination of the piercing logic of Vedanta and poignant poetic similes. A great orator, writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant, Swami Chinmayananda, pioneered the art of conveying sublime knowledge intricately wrapped in Sanskrit through the medium of English Discourses and Commentaries. All actions are possible because of Brahman: Just as luminosity is the nature of the Sun, coolness of water and heat of fire, so too the nature of the Atman is Eternity, Purity, Reality, Consciousness and Bliss.

Realise that to be Brahman which is neither subtle nor gross: That by the light of which the luminous, orbs like the Sun and the Moon are illuminated, but which is not illumined by their light, realise that vodha be Brahman. All the manifested world of things and beings are projected by imagination upon the substratum which is the Eternal All-pervading Vishnu, whose nature chihmayananda Existence-Intelligence; just as the different ornaments are all made out of the same gold.

Atma Bodha Swami Chinmayananda

The Atman, the Sun of Knowledge that rises in the sky of chnmayananda heart, destroys the darkness of the ignorance, pervades and sustains all and shines and makes everything to shine. Just as a lamp illumines a jar or a pot, so also the Atman illumines the mind and the sense organs, etc.

He becomes the Self.
