OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ABSOLUTE:-1.

Ordinary men:- To the ordinary man, his body is himself. His identification with the body is deep and strong. He lives for the body, strives for the body, and knows no other mission in life than sensuous joys.  To such a one, living such a low level of existence, the only relationship he could have with the Absolute must be one of separateness and slavery.
Another class of men :- These have slightly grown up and have come to recognise that they are not only the bodies but also creatures endowed with mind and intellect. Such men, have, therefore, come to recognise the existence and the workings of the psychological personalities in them. To them, they being not merely their bodies man is not a perishable  intellectual worm but is sacred creature possessing almost godly powers evident in the manifestations of the mind and the intellect. They review the achievements of science and poetry; they recognise the thinkers and discoverers; they take into  account the total victory man has so f…

THE COUNTRY OF RAMAYANAM:-

RAMAYANA :- Ramayana should not be a heard as collection of stories, studied and inner tattvam is assimilated and followed in our day to day life. Lord Rama, the character is an example of good human, Rama owns a mind which is strong, and ready to obey any orders from his father, mother,Guru, and the list is long. Wonder Ramayana is celebrated in OUR CAPITAL every year at Ramleela maidan, and the worse part the crime against women is fearful increase, here!?Very big administrative band is there to sing useless discussions at taxpayers cost, this drama is direct telecast, so that the country can follow their footsteps and play hooligans in the streets molesting children,women, and the old.
Law and order machinery in the country is out of order since very long, the so called leaders of the country asleep, snoring heavily. Leaving few good people, the majority citizens are run behind money, women, sex, and all sorts of material pleasures, throwing all morals and values to the wind. All …

PRESENT BHARATHAM:-

RAMARAJYAM:- Our Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhiji 's great dream of making Bharatham a Ramarajya, is not possible in anyway. Present Bharatham: 1.Rulers  have no knowledge, no vision, no leadership qualities, no control of any thing in their respective responsibilities, silly thoughts, mindless speeches ,worthless activities, and---------------so on 2.Citizens food habits are so rajas and tamas, the characterless crowd is on the increase. 3.Liqueur consumption is beyond any control, the result is, in violence, crimes, are stepped up at greater speed.[to be cont---d]

GO SLOW:-

PRESENT WORLD:- Today people are in hurry with no meaning, everyone dream is a super fast development in each and every sector in life. A business man has no patience to wait for any thing, he wants immediate huge gain in his business, He can't wait for normal  period required to any work, This is seen in every field today. These people should watch Nature, and learn how the Nature's cycle functioning. In Nature in any creative function there is no hurry seen. 1.The Sun rise and set  takes place in slow pace. 2.Likewise the Moon. 3.A Bud open and blossom in its own time. 4.Hatching of Egg, and the new born comes out, in a period of time. 5.Germination of Seed. 6.Final product fruit waiting-leaf,flower, then fruit, a procedural delay is seen. 7.There still many to highlight,please check yourself. WE think to reach the target in one jump, it is dangerous. In Atmeeyam there is no use for hurry, You have to practice slowly, get results not soon, it may take many days,months,years…

ATMEEYA DIARY:-

You have to search good people who are interested in discussions on on values and scriptures. If you do not find one, then you can listen good things from Jnanis, still you don't get one Jnani for help, then take the help of best books on Atmeeyam,Vedantam. 7.How much time you spent on Nishkama karmam ? 1.V…

ATMA VIKASAM:-DHAANAM.

DHAANAM:- Intelligent  Sharing of one's wealth  with eligible needy persons is known as Dhaanam(Charity). Dhaanam is otherwise known as  Atma vikasam. Atma vikasam is a quality of one who has broad mind and open heart to accept all people surrounding him. For him nobody is alien or stranger, the needs of these people are like his  own needs, and raise to the situation. Those who see these and possess the quality has Atma vikasam.

"UPASANA" :-[ MEDITATION ]

There are four ways of Upasana towards Lord. 1.Salukya:-See by physical eyes the Deity, then fix the kendra bindu [target] or object in your mind. 2.Sarukya:- Problems come and go in the mind, but confirm that the mind is not in the problems. 3.Samipya:- Confirm that Eswara chithanyam is always with you. 4.Sayugyam:- Dissolve the mind [jeevatma] in the Chaithanyam [Paramatma] and confirm it.

FIVE FOLD MANIFESTATION OF LIFE:-

PRANAYAMA:- It means control of  all expressions of life-physiological, mental, and intellectual-and not mere breath control. Pranayama is not mere svasayama. PANCA--PRANAH:- We may consider them  as corresponding to five physiological systems that the biologists describe:- 1.Prana:- The system of Perception: It controls all perception of the five-fold stimuli received from the outer world. 2.Apana:- System of Excretion: All things thrown out of the body - seeds, spit, perspiration, urine, stool, etc, -- are expressions of this prana. 3.Vyana:- System of Digestion: The digestion of food received in the stomach. 4.Samana:- Circulatory system: The power by which the digested food is justly conveyed to the various limbs of the body by the blood system. 5.Udana:- System of thinking: The capacity in an individual to raise his thoughts from their present level to conceive a possibility or appreciate a new principle, etc, is also a play of Prana.     

BAHYA PRAPANCHAM AND JAGAT.

What is Jagat? What is Bhahya Prapancham? 1.Body, Mind, Buddhi [Intelligence]: These three are Dharma Bhodam. 2.Shraddha [Awake], Svapnam [Dream], Sushupti [Sleep] : These are Experiences. 3Mind:- has two parts -1.Emotions, 2.Intellect. 4.Buddhi:-is making policies for life. 5.Jagat:-consists of the sum of above 1,2,3,4 6.In short the sum of experiences passing through our body [Sthula Sareera/which is seen], mind and buddhi [Sushma Sreera which is not seen], Atma [Karana Sareera which is the cause], is called JAGAT. 7.This is other wise known as Bhahya Prapancham .

SRUSHTI TATTVAM [Principle of Creation]:-

1.No new creation is done by anybody. 2.Name, Form, Content, Position : Changes in these  is the creation. 3.Creation of a thing has three parts, they are called "karanam"[cause ]. They are-a). Upadanam:-(Samavayi )-Raw material, b).Srushtavu:-(Asamavayi)-Maker/Creator, c).Nimitham:-(Upakaranam)-Tool. 4.But from Poorna Brahmam a Apoorna Jagat creation activity has no karya karanam. 5.Example-Bubbles in the water truly water itself, bubble form in the water, survive some time, then dissolve in the water itself. 6.Likewise the diverse  Prapancham ( sareera,mano,buddhi,etc) also just a play of names,forms,etc. 7.But there are no changes happening in Brahmam. 8.Then how diverse Prapancham  form from Brahmam? 9.Answer:- It is just a illusion only. 10.Truth:-There is no Srushti (Creation ) at all.

SAREERA ( BODY ) DHARMAM.

WHAT IS THE DHARMA OF OUR SAREERAM ( BIDY )? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BODY IS A TOOL OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS  TO PERFORM A SUPREME ACTION ONLY. THIS BODY WILL NOT SURVIVE FOR LONG; IT WILL NOT BE SKILLFUL FOR LONG AS SAME, AND ALSO NOT USEFUL TO ANY ONE, IF NOT TODAY IT WILL PERISH TOMORROW, YES IT SHOULD PERISH AND RETURN TO A PLACE FROM WHERE IT CAME THAT IS THE: PANCHA BOODA.  THAT IS THE DHARMA OF SAREERAM.

PANCHAGNI OR PANCHA YJNAM OR FIVE DUTIES.

1.PITRU YAJNAM :-Our duties towards our ancestors. 2.BOOMI YAJNAM:-Our duties towards our earth. 3.MATA, PITA YJNAM:-Out duties towards our Parents. 4.SAMUHA YJNAM:-Our duties towards our Society. 5.JNANA YAJNAM:- Our duties towards  propagating Jnanam(Knowledge).
These duties must be carried by each person on his/her own will,dedication,involvement and submission, One who follows and perform these duties at his/her best, disregarding the benefits sure to attain Paramapadam [ Union with Lord]

HAPPY LIVING

TRAINING:- A PERSON MUST PRACTICE FOUR ESSENTIAL QUALITIES  TO BE HAPPY THROUGHOUT HIE/HER LIFE. 1.SAMATVAM  ---DYANAM---CONCENTRATION --FEELING OF GOD. 2.MAITRI---PREMAM  ---SAMARPANAM ---INVOLVEMENT---DEDICATION. 3.KARUNYAM-- BE HAPPY IN GIVING ----SHARING. 4.DIDISHAYA---SVEEKARYAM---ACCEPTANCE---NO COMPLAINTS.

WAYS TO EARN JNANAM:-

THERE ARE THREE WAYS TO EARN JNANAM:- 1.SRAVANAM--TRUTH reflected in SRUTHI, hear from a Guru. 2. MANANAM---Analysation of the Truth heard and listened from Guru. 3.Nidydyasanam---Confirmation of the Truth understood through Sravanam and Mananam.
LONELINESS:-7. In and through life discover your heart. The rule of the heart, for the heart by the heart, for the heart is the only true democracy with in the bosom. That which accomplishes this is the true religion even if it be without  a church, a mosque, or a temple of its own. Test  your religion in your reaction to solitude. [ end] By swami chinmayananda.
LONELINESS:-6. The call of vedanta to man is to soar to that solitary peak of perfection, to ascend towards its brilliant glory through knowledge-- right knowledge. Nothing should really compel a brave man to vulgar sadness. A man is rightly judged not by his skin; we should plumb him deeper and come to touch the riches in the deeper depths in him. One who cannot find entertainment in solitude is indeed imperfect. The true test of divinity in ourselves is in our capacity to feel amply rewarded in ourselves by ourselves.
LONELINESS:-5. The sun is over alone. Chaste and pure without tremor he rides across the meridian, serving the world in his stride from afar. A million reflected suns may lie about broken  and shattered on all the reflecting surfaces on the earth, and yet, the lonely sun rides in solitude, conscious of his own glory and unaffected by all his hosts of reflections. The sorrows and tragedies of the mock suns do not belong to the divine sun.
God is alone, but the devil is ever in legions. To be alone like the Lord is to serve the world as the divine sun. To identify with the mock suns is to feel oneself  broken  amidst a legion of devils.
LONELINESS:-4. THERE IS NO COMPANION LIKE TRUE SOLITUDE. BUT AT THE SAME TIME REMEMBER THAT A SPOT WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN PROFANED BY ANY HUMAN NEIGHBOURHOOD NEED NOT NECESSARILY  BE A PLACE OF EFFECTIVE SOLITUDE. SOLITUDE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE MILES OF SPACE THAT INTERVENE BETWEEN A MAN AND HIS FELLOWS. IT IS ESSENTIALLY A MENTAL CONDITION. ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO ENTERTAIN HIMSELF IS NEVER LONELY AND EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THE DIN AND ROAR OF THE MARKET-PLACE HE IS ALONE IN HIMSELF ENJOYING A RE CREATIVE SOLITUDE.
loneliness:-3. From this new point of view, the individual rising from himself/herself comes to watch  the whole world as a tiny speck in the universe, and the entire universe itself as a meagre pin--head in the Milk--way! In this wonderful vision who can feel ever lonely! How far apart really then one person is from another! But in our limited ego-centric view point our concept of time and space becomes so extended and grossed, that in our self deluded foolishness we dread solitude and miss the best the life has to offer us through  its secret silence.
loneliness:-2. It is not friendship that we seek in society; we merely demand a crowd always to be around us: blabbering, howling, shrieking --all the time weeping, sobbing, sighing. The dripping of  sweat, the sound of wailing, the sigh of despair are the only music that we seem to recognize today . The joyous serenade of leaves, the giggling dance of the rippling waters along rocky distances, the galloping waves restlessly stamping the surface of the seas, the queenly moon gracefully gliding across the soulful nights, the nodding flowers in bunches waiting to watch the procession of the day, the colorful sunset hesitating to leave the luxurious  golden splash of the western sky: none, none of them has any message for a majority of us. If anyone is compelled to spend a day in the midst of  glorious company he/she dies of loneliness! And this dreadful loneliness of the fools is the very joyous solitude of the wise. An unprepared mind, maladjusted  to receive the hilarious laughter in…
loneliness:-1.Scientific education, if it has illuminated more our day-time-world, it also has darkened our nights. Though generally well educated, what a small percentage of our young men and women today are not afraid of lonely nights! Not only do they feel lonely, but they are positively afraid in the night. And if we analyse this silent dead, we can find that it is but essentially our fear to be all alone with ourselves. Our own thoughts generally rise up to accuse us!
Loneliness to the modern man and woman is disastrous threat. To be alone in a quiet place and spend evening all by himself / herself is almost a painful tragedy to many young persons of our times. Very rarely does one know the art of enjoying a delicious evening, melting  and re-moulding     one's entire body into single thrilled sense organ and imbibing delight through every pore of it. Generally modern man and woman want to bring the horizon near hie/her estate, little knowing that the skies are never at his/h…
THE HOLY SECULSRISM:7. Healthy human living in a progressive state alone can bring about prosperity that can waft fragrance of peace and happiness. This harmonious orchestra played between the within and without of human is the true sreyas of the world. 
In Geeta we have this scheme of life vividly painted . This sacred scripture of human in its concluding stanza declares openly this truth; "Where the sacred Krishna and dynamic Arjuna are together, there alone is the peaceful prosperity, dynamic progress, enduring welfare".
The sacred and the secular can be blended; they should be integrated if human is to be saved--if the world is to be saved--if the world is to be redeemed from its self--destruction. [End.] BY SWAMI CHINMAYANANANDA.
THE HOLY SECULARISM:-6.
IN SHORT, FANATIC RELIGION IS AS DANGEROUS TO THE WORLD AS FANATIC SECULARISM. IF THE MEDIEVAL ERA INAUGURATED A DARK -AGE, OUR OWN IS AN AGE WHICH IS ALSO STORMY. THIS IS THE PROBLEM THAT HUMAN IS FACING TODAY IN THE WORLD . NATURALLY THE OBVIOUS SOLUTION SEEMS TO BE IN A HARMONIOUS BLENDING OF THE SACRED AND THE SECULAR-- THE TEMPLE AND THE FACTORY, THE POOJA AND PLOUGHING. THE HAND WITH WHICH WE USE THE SPANNER AND THE SCREWDRIVER MUST ALSO BE TRAINED TO OFFER DEVOTEDLY SOFT FLOWERS AND SUCCULENT FRUITS AT THE ALTER OF THE ETERNAL TRUTH. THE SECULAR SANCTIFIES THE STATE, THE SACRED SOFTENS THE SELF. HUMAN ALONE CANNOT LIVE; THE STATE ALONE IS NOT PROSPERITY.
THE HOLY SECULARISM:-5.
A SUCCESSFUL REVOLUTION ALWAYS NOURISHES COURAGE IN THE REVOLUTIONARIES AND UNLESS IT IS PROPERLY GUIDED, IN ITS MOUNTING PASSIONS IT CAN DESTROY THE VERY GOAL OF THE REVOLUTION. SUCH A TRAGEDY SEEMS TO HAVE HAPPENED FOR MATERIALISM IN THE WEST. FROM UNDER THE LOADS OF ITS VERY SUPERSTITIONS AND SUFFOCATING SHACKLES OF RELIGIOUS FANATICISM THE HEALTHY  INTELLECT OF THE WEST RIGHTLY REVOLTED, AND EMERGED OUT SPECTACULARLY, TO FIGHT FOR, VANQUISH, AND RULE OVER THE REALMS OF SCIENCE. IN THIS SILENT REVOLT THEY HAD NO MASTERLY GUIDE TO LEAD THEM PROPERLY AND, THEREFORE, INTOXICATED WITH THEIR FREEDOM, THE MAJORITY OF THE MASSES HAVE COME TODAY TO BELIEVE THAT THEIR SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS IS BECAUSE OF THEIR REVOLT AGAINST THE SACRED RELIGIOUS DISCIPLINE.
TO THEM, THEREFORE, TODAY, TO BE AGAINST THE SACRED IS TO BE ASSURED OF PROGRESS IN THE SECULAR. WITHOUT ANY CHASTENING PHILOSOPHY, WITHOUT ANY INSPIRING IDEOLOGY, WITHOUT ANY MORAL GOAL, WITHOUT ANY SOFTENING DEVOT…
