Note This book investigates into the central metaphysics and epistemology of Advaita. Although the vastness of Advaita literature has grown to immense proportions in the span of fourteen centuries, there has been a glaring vacuum in unraveling its philosophical, theological and religious implications. This volume undertakes a thematic search on the conception of Atman in an all-important Advaitic text, the Vivekacudamani , and other supportive texts of the same genre. Walter Menezes aims to revive Advaita as a sound philosophical system by driving away the cloud of negativity associated with it, thereby opening a new chapter in the history of Advaita philosophy
