[LAMP OF NON-DUAL KNOWLEDGE]
Sri RamanasramamTiruvannamalai2002
 ADVAITA BODHA DEEPIK
 
FOREWORDFOREWORDFOREWORDFOREWORDFOREWORD
Originally Sri Shankaracharya and other great Sages had written several works like the commentary on the Vedanta
Sutras 
and thus furnished the methods for those engaged in Self enquiry to accomplish their purpose.From those, Sri Karapatra Swami later condensed thesalient points into Sanskrit verse in a work of twelve chapters,called
Sri Advaita Bodha Deepika
.Still later, some great man seems to have translated thisinto Tamil prose. For some unknown reasons only some eightchapters of the same are found published. They are:1.
 Adhyaropa
=Super imposition.2.
 Apavada
=Its removal.3.
Sadhana
=The means of accomplishment.4.
Sravana
=Hearing, reading, talking about God.5.
 Manana
=Reflecting on sravana.6.
Vasanakshaya
=Annihilation of latencies.7.
Sakshatkara
=Direct Realisation.8.
 Manonasa
=Extinction of the mind.In this work the author has explained how Ignorance obscuresthe true nature of the Self which is non-dual only; how by itsveiling aspect it covers It (the Self) with two effects — ‘that It doesnot exist’ and ‘that It does not shine forth’, how by its other aspect,in the shape of the mind, projecting individuals,
Iswara
and the world and presenting them as real, thus giving rise to illusion; how one fully qualified is alone fit to obtain this knowledge; how a barescholar of the shastras cannot be fit; how enquiry is the chief meansfor knowledge; how this enquiry consists in hearing of, reflectingupon and contemplation of TRUTH, and Samadhi; how theindirect knowledge gained by hearing puts an end to the idea that‘It does not exist’ and the direct knowledge gained by reflection, which means enquiry ‘WHO I AM’ and seeking within, destroysiii
