APAROKSHANUBHUTI: SELF-REALISATION June 29, 2015 This page will carry notes/comments I will be recording, as I go through the book with the above title published in 1938 by Advaita Ashrama, Calcutta. The copy before me was purchased on November 13, 1987 in Mumbai at a price of Rs5.90(Rupees five and ninety paise) and belonged to sixth impression brought out in July 1982. The book has 144 stanzas in Sanskrit with English translation and brief comments (By Swami Vimuktananda), in 88 pages. Aparokshanubhuti, while presenting a brief description of Vedanta deals specially with realisation(Anubhuti) of the highest truth. Such realisation, is an immediate and direct perception of one’s own Self, which is here indicated by the word Aparoksha. Sriharim Paramaanandamupadeshtaarameeshwaram Vyapakam sarvalokaanaam kaaranam tam namaamyaham(1) I bow down to Him- to Sri Hari (the destroyer of ignorance), the Supreme Bliss, the First Teacher, Iswara, the All-pervading One and the cause of all Lokaas(the Universe). June 30, 2015 The verses 100 to 129 deal especially with the fifteen stages through which the seeker after truth passes…Verse 141depicts the culminating thought of the Vedanta philosophy that all that is visible and invisible is the one eternal Atman, which is Pure Consciousness. Adrshyam bhaasharoopamcha sarvamevachidatmakam Saavadhaanatayaa nityam swaatmaanam bhaavayedbudhah(141) The wise should always think with great care of the invisible, the visible and everything else, as his own Self, which is consciousness itself. Now, we will go to the beginning of the text, from stanza 2. (to be continued)
