Atman versus Brahman

The people of India have a particular vision of the writing. Thus, to write, it is to try to unify the âtman Indian elephant to the brahman of the text which pre-exists. The atman represents according to Three fundamental points. The brahman makes it possible to see the objective absolute. Contrary, the âtman leads to the subjective absolute. Thus the Hindu thinkers will still discover a more essential truth: major identity of the braham and the âtman. This identity is the true absolute, or the âtman-brahman
For better including/understanding: Âtman (sometimes spelled âtmâ): 1. Principle essential from which any alive being organizes itself. 2. To be central above nature, calm, unallocated, by the movements of Nature, but supporting their evolution all while not mingling with it; one which supports the Multiple (Srî Aurobindo). 3 vital Breath. Brahman: 1. Texts vedic. 2. Mysterious power to which the rites are effective. 3. Crowned. 4. Absolute. 5. The only Reality, whose demonstration (Mâyâ) is only one illusion. 6. The Conscience which knows itself in all that exists, the supracosmic existence which underlies cosmos, it Me cosmic (Aurobindo).
