Atmabodha or Knowledge-of-the-Self: A poetic composition of Adi Shankaracharya by L Ramaswamy

Prakarana Granthas are introductory texts to Vedanta. They serve as the key to open the treasures contained in Upanishads. Atmabodha (Knowledge-of-the-Self), a poetic composition by Adi Shankaracharya, is one such introductory text containing 68 verses on Atman, the Supreme Self. The text lucidly explains subtle ideas of Vedanta using metaphors and similes from our experiences and nature in general. Thus Atmabodha makes a student enjoy the learning process and establishes him firmly in the fundamental concepts of Vedanta. Here is an attempt to study the text in detail through weekly study classes in English, conducted by Shri L Ramaswamy.Shri L Ramaswamy is a senior disciple of internationally eminent philosopher & spiritual guide Swami Parthasarathy and is presently stationed in Kolkata, India, as a senior alumnus and Research Scholar of Vedanta Academy since 2002.
