Journey To Self Realization : An Introduction To Aparokshanubhuti

2-day Residential Retreat

Journey to Self Realization

An introduction to Aparokshanubhuti
Swami Chidrupananda

One of the deeper texts of Prakarana Grantha in Vedanta shastra is ‘Aparokshanubhuti’ written by Bhagawan Shri Adi Shankaracharya. A prakriya Grantha is a book of definitions to explain the deep truths given in the Shastras. This text may look simple but very deep and it leads to deeper meditations once we try to internalise the contents of the text.

We use three words in Vedanta. Pratyaksha, Paroksha and Aparoksha. Whatever we can see through senses is Pratyaksha. Paroksha is indirect or gaining the knowledge ‘through the eyes of someone else’, and Aparoksha is immediate and transcendental experience after which there will be left no doubts whatsoever regarding the true nature of self. This is an experience that puts an end to all our misconceptions born of ignorance.

This is a text which emphasises more on practice and not on a theoretical explanation. This gives many pointers to Meditation for a sincere seeker.

The retreat will focus on providing a comprehensive overview of the teachings of the text
