Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )
Slokam-2. ( Lord Sri Krishna reply to Arjuna )
idam sariram kaunteya kshetram iti abhidhiyate,
etat yah vetti tam prahuh kshetrajna iti tadvidah.
Sri-bhagavan uvaca = Lord replied;
kaunteya idam sariram = arjuna! this body;
kshetram iti abhidhiyate = (is) called as Kshetram;
etat yah vetti = one who knows this;
tam kshetrajna iti = he is Kshetragjan;
tadvidah. prahuh = so say the known person.
"Atma-Sakshatkaram" : is an 'Aparokshanuputi' ( inner experience ).
It is not a practical ( external practice ), but is inner regulation and practice.
The great Bharatheeya Rishi-s declared that it is "Atmanusandhanam itself is path of Atmanubhuti."
What is svarupam of Atma, and and its encircling Atma's specifications are shown in this chapter scientifically.
Sadhakan from Anatma-things, by separating Atma-svarupam, and he who understands, that is his trua Atma itself, in this stage he knows that Anatma-vastus are not true.
One who experiences the 'Jagratha-avastha' ( awaken ), he himself experiences in his mind's a special reflection of bhavam the 'Swapna-avastha' ( dream ).
When he wakes up only he understands it is mind's false creation only, i.e, dream.
Likewise, our true svarupam, 'Paramatma-tattvam,' when get into it this 'Diverse-Prapancham disappears.
In "Atma-Sakshatkatam" there is no place for 'Anatma-vastus.'
Thus in tattva-sastram's drushti ( view ) there are two parts for man : 1. the 'JADA-VASTU-SANGHATHAM' AND 2. 'CHAITHANYAM'.
In this slokam these things are dealt with.
