Jiivátmá and Pratyagátmá is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 October 20 in Patna, India. This discourse is the eighteenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 3.[1]


It has been asked, “If all those mirrors reflecting that original flower are taken away, what will happen?” The original flower will remain non-reflected. So if you remove your mental plate, you will be one with the Supreme. If the mirror comes near the original flower, and becomes one with the original flower, there cannot be any reflection. And that stage is the stage of Nirguńásthiti.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that in many ancient scriptures such as the Yajurveda and Savitr Rk it has been said that a human being should ask Parama Purusa for nothing other than a properly guided intellect, that is to say an intellect guided toward bliss and universal welfare. Anandamurti then explains that the mind becomes purified through Sadhana and selfless service. On a meticulously neat mirror, one can get a better reflection of the supreme soul. Anandamurti goes on explaining that a purified mind is a phase in the movement toward our human goal. Self surrender and devotion is necessary for merging in God. That is the final stage of spirituality.[1]
