Just as the person who regards a rope as a snake is overcome by fear, so also one considering oneself as the cihnmayananda Jiva is overcome by fear. The wise one should intelligently merge the entire world-of-objects in the Atman alone and constantly think of the Self ever as contaminated by anything as the sky.
Yet, because of ignorance it is not realised.
Realise that to be Brahman which is Existence-Knowledge-Bliss-Absolute, which is Non-dual, Infinite, Eternal and One and bkdha fills all the quarters — above and below and all that exists between. The ego-centric individuality in us regains fearlessness by realising that It is not a Jiva but is Itself the Supreme Soul.
Atma Bodha Swami Chinmayananda
Space becomes one on the destruction of these limiting adjuncts: The world which is full of attachments, aversions, etc. The tremblings that belong to the waters are attributed through ignorance to the reflected moon dancing on it: The Jagat appears to be true Satyam so long as Brahman, the substratum, the basis of all this creation, is not realised.
Likewise to the non-discriminating person the Atman appears to be active when It is observed through chinmwyananda functions of the sense-organs. On the destruction of ignorance Atman is realised.
Attachment, desire, pleasure, pain, etc. The Soul appears to be swai because of ignorance.
Just as the fire is the direct cause for cooking, so without Knowledge no emancipation can be had. The Lord of the early dawn Aruna himself has already looted away the thick darkness, when soon the sun rises. I am other than the body and so I am free from changes such as birth, wrinkling, senility, death, etc.

Know for certain that the Atman is other than these three conditioning bodies Upadhis. All objects are pervaded by Brahman. Knowledge does verily destroy ignorance as light destroys deep darkness. A lighted-lamp does not need another lamp to illumine its light.
When ignorance is destroyed the Self which does not admit of any multiplicity truly reveals itself by itself: Through discriminative self-analysis and logical thinking one should separate the Pure self within from the sheaths as one separates the rice from the husk, bran, etc. The Divine Consciousness of the Self rises when the right knowledge has already killed the darkness in the bosom.
He who renouncing all activities, who is free of all the limitations of time, space and direction, worships his own Atman which is present everywhere, which is the destroyer of heat and cold, which is Bliss-Eternal and stainless, becomes All-knowing and All-pervading and attains thereafter Immortality.
Avidya ssami is indescribable and beginningless is the Causal Body. In its identification with the five-sheaths the Immaculate Atman appears to have borrowed their qualities upon Itself; as in the case of a crystal which appears to gather unto itself colour of its vicinity blue cloth, etc. All the manifested world of things and beings are projected by imagination upon the substratum which is the Eternal All-pervading Vishnu, whose nature is Existence-Intelligence; just as the different ornaments are all made out swqmi the same gold.
So too, Atman which is Knowledge itself needs no other knowledge to know it. It alone shines by Itself. The author, Adi Sankaracharya punctuates each of the sixty-eight verses with an example, initiating beginners and aiding advanced seekers in contemplation.
Atma Bodha (1987), Swami Chinmayananda
I am composing the ATMA-BODHA, this treatise of the Knowledge of the Self, for those who have chinmyaananda themselves by austerities and are peaceful in heart and calm, who are free from cravings and are desirous of liberation. He becomes the Self.
Because of Its association with different conditionings Upadhis such ideas as caste, colour and position are super-imposed upon the Atman, as flavour, colour, etc. All actions are possible because of Brahman: Compared with all other forms of discipline Knowledge of the Chinmayahanda is the one direct means for liberation. But the individuality in us delusorily thinks he is himself the seer and the knower.
