The Atma Bodha is a prakarana text (independent treatise) traditionally attributed to Sankaracharya. Scholars take issue with Sankara’s authorship holding that some of the concepts and language of the text could not possibly be written by the same Sankara who wrote the definitive Brahma Sutras. Nevertheless, traditional teachers use the text early in the education of their students. It is valued for both its fundamental and profound presentation of Advaita Vedanta.
It is my intention to irregularly post to this group translated verses of the Atma Bodha (copied from Swami Chinmayananda’s online version) together with some of my own humble explanation. I pray the endeavor will be fulfilling and worthy to all concerned.
