self-realization

self-realization
   Self-realization, or living in constant awareness of the real Self, AT M A N, is considered the goal of most Hindu study and practice. Hinduism recognizes that individual abilities and interests vary con-siderably among people, so it acknowledges that self-realization can be achieved through devotion, study, faith, work in the world, or meditation. In this way, Hinduism includes disciplines for mind, emotions, body, and action in the world—all as valid ways to realization of ultimate reality, the atman.
   See also moksha; samadhi.
