Atma Bodha or ‘the knowledge of the Self’ is a short treatise on Advaita Vedanta, also called the philosophy of non-duality. It consists of 68 verses in Sanskrit. The term ‘non-duality’ refers to the belief that the individual soul (Atman) and the universal, absolute soul (Brahman) are one. According to Atma Bodha, false identification with the fleeting objects of the material world can be overcome only when knowledge of the Self or the Eternal dawns.
In this course Swami Kashi will take you to explore the philosophy of Vedanta, which asserts the underlying unity of all life, as explained in Adi Sankaracharya’s text Atma Bodha. With the awareness of the nature of the Self and the universe according to Vedanta, you may find it easier to free yourself from limiting thought patterns, emotions, and reactions to stress in everyday life.
"Action cannot destroy ignorance, for it is not in conflict with or opposed to ignorance. Knowledge does verily destroy ignorance as light destroys deep darkness." Adi Shankaracharya
