ATMA SHATAKAM - SRI SRI SHANKARACHARYA


Mano Buddhi Ahankara Chitta Ninaham
Nacha Shrotra Jihve Na Cha Ghrana Netre
Nacha Vyoma Bhoomir Na Tejo Na Vayu
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham

I am not mind, nor intellect, nor ego, nor the reflections of inner self (chitta).
I am not the five senses. I am beyond that. I am not the ether, nor the earth, nor the fire, nor the wind (the five elements).

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.



Na Cha Prana Samjno Na Vai Pancha Vayu
Na Va Saptadhatur Na Va Pancha Koshah
Na Vak Pani Padau Na Chopastha Payu
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham


Neither can I be termed as energy (prana), nor five types of breath (vayus),nor the seven material essences (Rasa: plasma, Rakta: blood, Mamsa: muscle, Medas: fat, Asthi: bone, Majja: marrow, Shukla: semen), nor the five coverings (pancha-kosha). Neither am I the five instruments of elimination, procreation, motion, grasping, or speaking.

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.


Na Me Dvesha Ragau Na Me Lobha Mohau
Mado Naiva Me Naiva Matsarya Bhavah
Na Dharmo Na Chartho Na Kamo Na Mokshah
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham


I have no hatred or dislike, nor affiliation or liking, nor greed, nor delusion, nor pride or haughtiness, nor feelings of envy or jealousy.
I have no duty (dharma), nor any money, nor any desire (kama), nor even liberation (moksha).

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.


Na Punyam Na Papam Na Saukhyam Na Dukham
Na Mantro Na Teertham Na Vedo Na Yajnaha
Aham Bhojanam Naiva Bhojyam Na Bhokta
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham



I have neither merit (virtue), nor demerit (vice). I do not commit sins or good deeds, nor have happiness or sorrow, pain or pleasure. I do not need mantras, holy places, scriptures (Vedas), rituals or sacrifices (yagnas).
I am none of the triad of the observer or one who experiences, the process of observing or experiencing, or any object being observed or experienced.

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.


Na Me Mrityu Shanka Na Me Jati Bhedah
Pita Naiva Me Naiva Mata Na Janma
Na Bandhur Na Mitram Gurur Naiva Shishyah
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham



I do not have fear of death, As I do not have death. I have no separation from my true self, no doubt about my existence, nor have I discrimination on the basis of birth. I have no father or mother, nor did I have a birth.
I am not the relative, nor the friend, nor the guru, nor the disciple.

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.


Aham Nirvikalpo Nirakara Roopaha
Vibhur Vyapya Sarvatra Sarvendriyanam
Sada Me Samatvam Na Muktir Na Bandhah
Chidananda Rupa Shivoham Shivoham


I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes, and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to liberation (mukti). I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium.

I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.

  2. A standard question put to Advaitists:If you are All Pervasive to whom are you saying all this?

  8. Looking at innerself with out any of our attachments with the material form world,with pure form concentration on self make way for lead to athma darshana,athma darshana leads to realizing the reality,this leads to separation from ordinary world, taking one to real bliss of god , finally one with god and god him self.
    Shree shankaracharya in his athma shathakam say he is not any thing else , he himself is Brahman and all soul is so in separable of Brahman .

    1. An atheist does not believe in God, he thinks everything is by chance and due to a random permutation and combindation of chemical reactions, we are all created. So there is no controller or creator above us, there is no karma, there is no life after death. He is the doer and the controller of his destiny.

      So when I realize the reality by pure form of concentration, I will realize that I am Brahman and finally God himself?

      Are you saying I am God?
