Āṉma-Viddai (The Science of Knowing Oneself)

In the following five articles I have written a detailed explanation of each of these five verses, and my translations along with these explanations have been compiled as a book, Āṉma-Viddai: The Science of Knowing Oneself:

  1. Āṉma-Viddai verse 1: thought is what causes the appearance of the unreal body and world
  2. Āṉma-Viddai verse 2: the thought ‘I am this body’ is what supports all other thoughts
  3. Āṉma-Viddai verse 3: knowledge of all other things is caused by ignorance of ourself
  4. Āṉma-Viddai verse 4: self-investigation is the easiest of all paths, because it is not doing but just being
  5. Āṉma-Viddai verse 5: in the heart that looks within without thinking of anything else, oneself will be seen

Nāṉ Ār? (Who am I?)
