Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Aparokṣānubhūti is an Indian hindu philosophical treatise (Prakaraṇa gratha) of Adi Shankaracharya.

In this work, Adi Shankara discusses the identity of the individual Self and the universal Self through the direct experience of the highest Truth. Aparokshanubhuti means non-indirect experience (aparoksha: non-indirect, anubhuti: experience), that means, 'direct experience' of the Truth.

According to Adi Shankara's Advaita Vedanta philosophy, Brahman (or 'the Absolute') alone is real, and the world has no existence apart from Brahman. In Aparokshanubhuti, Adi Shankara discusses the means and the path to directly experience Brahman as the ultimate Truth.
