Amritabindu-upanishad is one of the very concise Upanishads belonging to the Atharva-veda, and comes under the category of minor. The term ‘minor’ is to indicate that it is not one of the 10 Upanishads upon which Sri Sankaracharya has written a commentary. The knowledge is no way minor, for though brief and concise, this Upanishad is complete in itself for the purpose of Liberation. The term ‘Upanishad’ refers to the highest Knowledge that Liberates one from the world of transmigration.
The Amritabindu-upanishad is divided broadly into three sections:
(1) Analysis of the mind and nature of bondage: The mind is analysed and stated as the cause of bondage as well as Liberation. The mind is of two types – one, which causes bondage; and the other, which leads one to Liberation. The mind that is attached to the world of objects is the cause of bondage and the mind that is free of attachment becomes the means for Liberation. The mind ought to be purified through various paths of karma-, bhakti-, raja-, and jnana-yogas. Such a purified mind must then be absorbed in the Self through the triple means of sravana, manana and nididhyasana.
(2) Method to absorb the mind in the Self: Omkara-upasana is prescribed as a means to absorb the mind in the Self. The obstacles that might come in the way of meditation and the techniques to overcome them are also enumerated.
(3) Nature of the Self: The nature of the Self is enumerated in the last section of the Upanishad through suitable illustrations. This section also is valuable for the advice it offers seekers for successfully walking the path to Liberation.
A total of eight video sessions by Swami Advayananda divided into six lessons are made available to the registered students.
