There exists nothing that is not Brahman.

All objects are pervaded by Brahman. So too, Atman which chinmayanandda Knowledge itself needs no other knowledge to know it. Brahman is other than this, the universe.
The Lord of the early dawn Aruna himself has already looted away the chinmayanansa darkness, when soon the sun rises. Just as the fire is the direct cause for cooking, so without Knowledge no emancipation can be had.
Realise that to be Brahman which is Non-dual, Indivisible, Cbinmayananda and Blissful and which is indicated in Vedanta as the Immutable Substratum, realised after the negation of all tangible objects. Though he lives in the conditionings Upadhishe, the contemplative one, remains ever unconcerned with anything or he may move about like the wind, perfectly unattached. When this the lower and the higher aspects of the Self are well churned together, the fire of knowledge is born from it, which in its mighty conflagration shall burn down all the fuel of ignorance in us.
Pervading the entire universe outwardly and inwardly the Supreme Brahman shines of Itself like the fire that permeates a red-hot iron-ball and glows by itself.
Realise That to be Brahman, the attainment of which leaves nothing more to be attained, the blessedness of which leaves no other blessing to be desired and the knowledge of which leaves nothing more to be known. Though Atman is Pure Consciousness and ever present everywhere, yet It is perceived by the eye-of-wisdom alone: After crossing the ocean of delusion and killing the monsters of likes and dislikes, the Yogi who is united with peace dwells in the glory of his own realised Self — as an Atmaram.
On the destruction of ignorance Atman is swwmi.
I am other than the body and so I am free from changes such as birth, wrinkling, senility, death, etc. Avidya which is indescribable chinmayananxa beginningless is the Causal Body.
Atma Bodha (1987), Swami Chinmayananda
The moon appears to be running when the clouds move in the sky. Know for certain that the Atman is other than these three conditioning bodies Upadhis.
In its identification with the five-sheaths the Immaculate Atman appears to have borrowed their qualities upon Itself; as in the case of a crystal which appears to gather unto itself colour of its vicinity blue cloth, etc. Therefore they belong to the mind alone and not to the Atman. The tremblings that belong to the waters are attributed through ignorance to the reflected moon dancing on it: Sitting in a solitary place, freeing the mind from desires and controlling the senses, meditate with unswerving attention on the Atman which is One without-a-second.
Atma Bodha Swami Chinmayananda
These material-objects by themselves cannot illumine themselves because they are inert. They are not perceived in deep sleep when the mind ceases to exist. The author, Adi Sankaracharya punctuates each of the sixty-eight verses with an example, initiating beginners and aiding advanced seekers in contemplation.
Like the space I fill all things within and without. He who has realised the Supreme, discards all his identification with the objects of names and forms. Space becomes one on the destruction of these limiting adjuncts: Just as the person who regards a rope as a snake is overcome by fear, so also one considering oneself as the ego Jiva is overcome by fear.
Deities like Brahma and others taste only a particle, of the unlimited Bliss of Brahman and enjoy in proportion their share of that chinmayxnanda.
Just as a lamp illumines a jar or a pot, so also the Atman illumines the mind and the sense organs, etc. The Soul appears to be finite because of ignorance.
If any object other than Brahman appears to exist, it is unreal like the mirage. All swai manifested world of things and beings are projected by imagination upon the substratum which is the Eternal All-pervading Vishnu, whose nature is Existence-Intelligence; just as the different ornaments are all made out of the same gold.
The study of Atmabodha with this great teacher of Vedanta is a blessing for the viewer.
