Dear Sri Subramanian Sir,
Thank you for the nice and beutiful post. Sri Bhagwan has said that Atmavichara includes all spiritual sadhanas and practices. Therefore, fixity and abidance in the Self is the culmination of Atmavichara and all sadhanas. However, I wished to say that in the initial stages of Atmavichara or the Self enquiry , Self is hazy and remote. Hence a seeker first isolates the I-thought from the general thoughts of you, he, it, this, that, etc. ( idam) and hold on and abide in it. This holding and abidance in the I-thought changes to the sentient part of the ego on its own accord. Since this particularised sentient part is unstable in this state, holding and abidance in it changes to undifferentiated ' I-I ' and then ultimately to the Self of its own accord. All a seeker has to do is to keep holding and abiding in the I-thought till the effortless fixity and abidance is realised. For, the greatest advantage of the Atmavichara is the availability of the taste of the Bliss of the Self to a seeker from the very beginning which acts as the unmistakable scent tracing which the he reaches his ultimate goal.
