Who Am I?

In the final analysis, the answer to the question of Who Am I? -- not just for me, but for any conscious sentience -- can only be realised in these immortal words of the One And Only Sankaracharya ... where  "Shiva" stands for the Quality of Goodness as imperfectly represented by the image of the "GOD" Shiva -- clad in tiger skin, with snakes and matted locks!

This is the Nirvana Shatakam or Atma Shatakam -- six stanzas that articulate the essential philosophy of Advaita Vedanta. The first five stanzas state, What Am I Not, while the last stanza states What Am I. Obviously, these are truths that one must realise, not simply understand.
