What Are You? is the first discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The discourse was delivered in English on the morning of 1979 May 24. This discourse is the 21st chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.
Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that In Tantra, practice is more significant than theory and that it constitutes a ninety nine percent of it. He then explains a tantric shloka composed of four sentences: Tadekaḿ japámas tadekaḿ smarámas - One should think or remember only the Supreme and not waste time in other thoughts or memories. Tadekaḿ jagatsákśiirúpaḿ namámah - Namaste is a salutation to the Guru alone. Tadekaḿ nidhánaḿ nirálambamiisham - Parama Purusa is beyond all boundaries and Bhavámbodhipotaḿ sharańaḿ vrajámah - Taking shelter in Him, is the only way to reach the goal.
