Nirvana Shatakam

Adi Shankaracharya’s Nirvana Shatakam, which was composed over 1200 years ago, is an embodiment of the “not this, not this” (neti, neti) teaching…which, when understood, can lead to the state of enlightenment, freedom, happiness and peace of mind. In these verses, Adi Shankaracharya explains how one should investigate and understand the true nature of the Atman (self) by rejecting the Anatma’s. (Non-self)

These verses are a powerful demonstration of the search for oneness, of identifying the true self which when truly practiced, leads to enlightenment. Some of them are easy to comprehend whereas others challenge the depths of our very own identity and challenges our very understanding of all we have taken for granted.

In these verses, every attachment – material, emotional, spiritual or any other, every belief, every experience, sensation, bodily function and our very existence is examined and negated. When we realize that we cannot be both the subject and the object, the each of these elements in our existence is “not me”, we realize that we are only the observer, and then we are motivated to refocus on the self as the observer. And when the observer is found to be not separate, then the entire dualistic structure collapses and everything is found to be That, One, or that Being-ness.

Our Guruji Swami Veda Bharati taught of Oneness with Universe, Oneness with Nature and Oneness with God! And as he has taught us, this is the realization which leads to the true feeling of Oneness with Universe, Oneness with Nature and Oneness with God!
