Ishavasya - question on atmahatya
Poll:

I have taken a few courses: Foundations of vedanta, Upanishads etc. So far I had understood - atma is ever present, death and rebirth is like change of clothes, upadis make it appear limited etc. But what is meant by "atma hatya" in Sloka that swamiji taught yesterday? Can Atma really be "killed"? I am a bit confused now. Would appreciate someone to chime in and help understand.

Hari Om!


You should not take it literally as atma being killed. For the ignorant person the atma is covered by tamas. That is figuratively described as atma hati.
