APAROKSHANUBHUTI: REALIZING THE SELF-EVIDENT
This is very famous contradictory saying in Vedānta that, “The seeker himself is the sought”. That means what we seek in our life is the self itself! The self is the one who objectifies/illumines the entire creation and also all means of knowledge and their activities, so the question is how to know or realize the self? To make it clear the issues of knowing the self and methodology of the realization for the seekers, Bhagavān Ādi Shanakarācharya has composed the primary text called Aprokṣānubhūti, Realizing the Self evident. Aprokṣa means to know which one does not need to employ any means of knowledge, and anubhūti means realization.
In this text one can learn through all teaching methodologies, such as Dṛg-Dṛśya-viveka, pañca-koṣa-viveka, etc. clearly to understand the true nature of the self without any doubts. It is consisting of 144 verses. The uniqueness of this text is that at the end it teaches the method of Nididhyasanaṁ in details through the well known 15 words of the Pātañjala-yoga-sūtra, such as abhyāsa, yama, niyama, etc. – from verse 100 to 137.
