Vedanta is the science of life. It shows us the gateway to peace and happiness. To understand this subtle science, knowledge of certain terms and concepts is mandatory. That is why we have prakarana-granthas or introductory books which explain the definitions of the special terms used in our Sastras. Adi Sankaracharya's Atmabodha is one such text. It is a scientific journey, throwing light on the subtle concepts present in our sastras. With striking examples and ingenious poetry he guides the reader along the path of Vedanta terminology. Pujya Swami Chinmayananda in his commentary effortlessly presents to the common man the timeless wisdom of Sankaracharya. Reflecting on these verses will uplift the mind and elevate the soul. A great guide for beginners and a meditation prop for advanced seekers.
