Ātma-bodha (Sanskrit: आत्मबोधः) is a short Sanskrit text attributed to Adi Shankara

The text in sixty-eight verses describes the path to Self-knowledge or the awareness of Atman.

Atmabodha is also the title of an Upanishad attached to the Atharvaveda.

Atmabodha means "Self-knowledge", self-awareness, or one with the "possession of a knowledge of soul or the supreme spirit".

The original text consists of sixty-eight verses and describes the way to the attainment of the knowledge of the Atman. As in Vivekachudamani, Shankara teaches that the Ultimate Reality or Brahman, the foundation of all, is beyond name and form, is of the nature of Pure Consciousness, but who can be realized by pursuing the Path of Knowledge, not by worship.

For the Wisdom of Self is the one way to Freedom,leading beyond all other paths,
As cooking cannot be accomplished without fire,so Freedom cannot be attained without wisdom.
