Is conscience not the mode by which we can listen to the inner Atman?

The pure conscience itself is the “Inner Voice”. But the difficulty in the ordinary man is
that the voice of the lower mind, the voice of the brutal instincts, is often misunderstood as the
voice of conscience. As a result of such misunderstanding, guided by his animal tendencies, he
commits colossal blunders, involving danger to others. It requires a great degree of purity and
calmness of mind to hearken the true Inner Voice.

From "May I answer that" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More Informations on Swami Sivananda: on the Website of Divine Life Society, Photographs of Swami Sivananda, German Pages on Swami Sivananda
