One desiring liberation should patiently remove these obstacles. Therefore the idea that the Self pervades everything is untrue. The Philosophy of the Bhagavadgita: Verify the characters on the left From: If you are not the doer the results of action do not accrue to you.

I have purchased several items from Exotic India: Its luminosity is not like that of fire or any such thing, for in spite of the presence of such lights darkness prevails at night at some place or other. When the Self is realized the body is known to be a dream.

Just as a confused person can mistake a rope for a snake, a Self ignorant person takes the phenomenal world to be the reality. The first stage of Raja Yoga is called Yama, control of the senses. Verses are meant to dismiss the most entrenched and obvious example of Self ignorance…I am the body.

Verify the characters on the left. Self inquiry is hard work. So how can this be the Purusha? Aparoksuanubhuti the seer in itself is alone permanent, the seen is opposed to it ie. That is the noblest vision, and not that which is directed to the tip of the nose.


I am not the apparently existent body. The aspirant should carefully practice this meditation that reveals his natural bliss until, being under his full control, it arises spontaneously, in an instant when called into action.

Weight of the Book: However, because Awareness is limitless is has aparomshanubhuti power and if it did not have the power to forget it would not be limitless. The downside is that they do not shznkaracharya the limitation of experience and the shankaaracharya of doership.

Eventually, this awareness of the Self is merged into the Self. This is the real course of Pranayama for the enlightened, whereas the ignorant only torture the nose. The noblest vision is the conversion of the samsaric way of seeing into non-dual vision, not gazing at the tip of the nose with the physical eyes. Self realization does not mean that the physical world disappears. Only the pure in heart should constantly and with all effort meditate upon the truth herein taught.


As always, I can count on Exotic India to find treasures not found in stores in my area. Those who are clever discussers of the Self but have shankaracharay realization and are attached to worldly pleasures are reborn over and over as a consequence of their lack of Self realization. Desire is the thought that if object X is attained it will make me happy.

One should verily see the cause in the effect, and then dismiss the effect altogether. The Vedanta texts declare ignorance to be verily the material cause of the phenomenal world just as earth is of a jar.

Aparokshanubhuti – Self-Realization – Shankaracharya

Then follows a discussion on Prarabdha, the momentum of past actions. I am not subjected to any disease, Shanksracharya am beyond all comprehension, free from all alternatives and all-pervading. The misunderstanding that the self is limited that causes suffering. Therefore the truth of this statement should be embraced.


It is in the mind that sense information is interpreted. A cause inheres in an effect but an effect does not inhere in the cause.

Aparokshanubhuti (Self-Realization) | Never Not Present

You won’t believe what some items have looked like when they’ve arrived! Purity of mind is quickly attained by those devoted to the teacher and the Self.

Renunciation is abandoning the aparokshnubhuti in the reality of the phenomenal universe by seeing that it is the ever-conscious Self. It does not stand alone but is sourced in its cause, Awareness, and different from it. But shankaracharyq any ritual, whether or not it bears fruit depends on whether or not the rules of inquiry are followed carefully.

A person who meditates upon a thing with great assiduity and firm conviction, becomes that very thing.

Just as all objects that are very small appear to be large when viewed through lenses, so does one, etc. It is true that everything in the world is limited but this does not mean that the Self is limited. When regularly practiced it causes great bliss. Abandonment of desires at all times is called Shama sparokshanubhuti restraint of the external functions of the organs is called Dama.
