Exerpts from Atma Nirvriti by Atmananda Krishna Menon


The Origin and the Dissolution of the World


I Knowledge objectified is thought. Then the 'I' remains as the witness of thought.


II Without My being seen as the witness, thought is joined to Me and I am made the thinker by living beings.


III And subsequently, the thinker is made the physical perceiver and then the corresponding thought becomes a gross object.


IV Thus living beings make of Me the world, and ignoring Me, live in bondage.


V The illusion of the world which comes about by these successive superimpositions can be removed only by going back along the same path.


Thoughts and Myself


I How can thoughts which rise and set in Me, be other than Myself?


II When there is a thought, I am seeing Myself; when there is no thought, I am remaining in My own glory.


All Is Consciousness


I Knowledge has nothing to know. The insentient can never know, being insentient.


II Therefore no one knows anything. All beings stand established as pure consciousness.
