Welcome to AatmaGyan
Om namah: shivay
Let there be peace.
This website has been created for a number of reasons. The primary and most important being you- the visitor. We all live in a world where we have forgotten to question, we have become ignorant of the miracles that surround us. We no longer know who we really are.
Who we are keeps changing, every single moment…we constantly die and we constantly live…the word for choice in hindi is ‘marzi’. If broken up it means two things- ‘mar’ which translated means death and ‘ji’ which translated means live. In each moment you die and live. One avenue must close for another to open. Even to read this introduction, you will be closing many other doors. Let me explain. The internet provides unlimited scope for your time. You reached here after negating all those other options that you had. For this this option to stay alive, other options must die and vice versa.
Our objective is to understand ourselves. Every man is perfectly imperfect. Imperfection is the beauty of our life, life itself being an organized confusion, a calculated madness.
Enlightenment is the process of illumining yourself, of understanding who you are. God is no different from us. Theoretically it is a very simple line. The realization however is way more complex.
This process takes us through varied phases in life. These phases are cyclical. The only difference is the level at which your consciousness has reached at that point. Take a train journey for instance. It is going from destination A to destination B. you are going for a marriage, the person on the adjacent berth is going for a funeral, another is going to meet his lover, another is going for a job interview. Although every circumstance during the journey is same, the perceptions of each of these people will be different and in reality, the journey is different for all of them. At a later date you will traverse the same journey, in the same train, with a different perception……..life is not much different.
All articles uploaded here are raw. They are raw as in they show the author as he or she is at that point of time. None of these should be construed as preachings. Any articles or memoirs that you may have are welcome and would be highly appreciated.
We are all finite forms of the infinite. Only when all of us- i.e pieces of the puzzle will meet will we be able to seethe entire picture. Advaita philosophy says that we are the waves and god is the ocean. Is not the ocean the cumulation of all the waves that compose it. I hope and pray that through this medium we can interact , increase our awareness and in this increased awareness find ourselves and god.
Most religions today are based on fear.there is a desire for ‘heaven’ and a fear of ‘hell’. We are interested in those that love. In those for whom life in itself is a celebration. In those that understand that there is a power greater than us; a power that does not demand our love or our prayer but deserves it.
May you all find something to learn from, and give to us something to learn from. Blessings.
In love and light.
Can only fire put out fire
Can gold not be purified without burning??????
Will moving mountains help???
Will tumultuous seas
Rupturing earths help???????/
Will bursting clouds
And volcanoes erupting
Make us understand....
Make us understand that the greatest calamity is always
For to closed eyes,
The moving mountain is still....
The seas clam and the earth firm,
The clouds drift by weaving mysterious dolls’
Similar to the lava gently performing its artistry on blocks of granite...
For the closed eyes are too busy,
Busy seeing the darkness of the light.....
For they both exist simultaneously
And always will....
An open eye however,
Sees the light inherent in darkness
The light of night
The darkness of day.
The dull dark and brightly shining light within,
The illusion of excessive light outside,
In my beginning is my end for nothing is created without destruction....
Destruction is the beginning of a new end....
