‘Atam-cheene’ is self-analysis, which is gained by peeping into one’s self in the light of the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. It is the process of evaluating and analyzing oneself on the touchstone of ‘naam simran’ which if practised, pierces into the self and washes it from within. The filth of too much of materialism goes, the self gets purified and the mind comes in ‘charhdi kala/higher state of mind”. This means that the self should be assessed, examined and purified, leading to self-realization and the purification of our mind. Once purified the mind helps in ushering in oneness with the Super Power as the Guru says, “Atam-cheen bhae nirankari” (SGGS:P. 415) which means that one gets attuned to the Formless Lord through self-realization. Indirectly it means that self-realization leads to God-realization.
