I took a large leap, however, in assuming that my readers know of him. Now, in one of the strange twists that Nonduality often takes, I find that he, or at least his teaching, is the star around which I orbit.
He was born in southern India in , just four years after the birth of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Their impact is not only carrying over to this century, it is growing almost exponentially.
Regardless, given that I had been studying different streams of the Nondual river for a long, long time, and was well versed in the other two legs of the stool, why had I never looked into Atmananda?
This is not from a lack of interest. His books fetch high prices in the used and antiquarian book trade. And thus we are denied direct access to the Direct Path.
Ironic, is it not? From numii. It is not enough to only investigate the waking state for that purpose, because your experience extends also into the dream and into deep dreamless sleep states.
Let us then initiate an investigation into these three states. You will discover that the I-principle the true unchanging Self is continuously present in each of the three states. The body, the senses and the mind are present in one state, but they are not there in the others. From that it follows that the I-principle is unjustly coupled with the body, the senses and the mind and that in reality it is independent of these three.
That can be seen in the deep dreamless sleep, where it shines in all its bliss. You can see there that the pure Consciousness is a deep Peace. When you awaken out of the deep sleep you then say that you were happy that you slept deeply and peacefully.
It is impossible to downplay the significance of this direct connection. How important is this? Both of them are excellent writers and convey the message extremely well. The Direct Path might be worth your looking into.
