Sri Adi Sankaracharya.


The body, etc., up to the causal body – ignorance – which are objects perceived, are as perishable as bubbles.
Realise through discrimination that I am the pure Reality ever completely separate from all these.
I am other than the body and so I am free from changes such as birth, wrinkling, senility, death, etc. I have nothing to do with the sense objects such as sound and taste, for I am without the sense-organs.
I am other than the mind and hence, I am free from sorrow, attachment, malice and fear, for "He is without breath and without mind, pure, etc.", is the commandment of the great scripture, the Upanishads.
I am without attributes and actions; Eternal without any desire and thought, without any dirt, without any change, without form, ever-liberated, ever-pure.
Like the space I fill all things within and without. Changeless and the same in all, at all times I am pure, unattached, stainless and motionless.
I am verily that Supreme Reality alone which is Eternal, pure and free, One, indivisible and non-dual and of the nature of changeless-knowledge-Infinite.
The impression "I am Reality" thus created by constant practice destroys ignorance and the agitation caused by it, just as medicine destroys disease.
Sitting in a solitary place, freeing the mind from desires and controlling the senses, meditate with unswerving attention on the Self which is One without-a-second.
🕉 ATMA BODHA. Verses 31 - 38.
