Atmananda (Krishna Menon) Books

The following PDF files are provided for educational purposes. I have downloaded them  from various sources on the internet and in these uncertain times it seems wise to make them available on a multitude of sites.  I would encourage anyone who feels that they are enriched by the books to purchase hard-copies if they exist. Many of them are available from

Notes on Spiritual Discourses of Sri Atmananda

Some Teachings of Atmananda

The Nature of Man According to Vedanta – John Levy

Previously there were two other books by Atamanada available from this page but I received a letter which I post below demanding that I take them down. These works have not been published since 1991. Life is a mystery.

  2. I am also interested in what you know about where it might be possible to get Atma-darshan and Atma-nirvriti. Thank you!


  3. Hello, good day. The 3 volume book cannot be purchased at this time, but I did order “The Nature of Man According to the Vedanta” and downloaded “The Notes of Atmananda” as PDF file now in my computer. Thank you so and am delighted to have this now and the other book is on the way. I believe one more is missing. Please tell me what is missing so I can look for it. Thank you and Sincerely, Cynthia Cecilia Blackstone 707-528-1563 (Santa Rosa, California, USA)

      1. Dear Purushottama, It seems that you are sending copies of “Atma Darshan” and “Atma Nirvriti” around. You may be interested to know that doing this is going against the wishes of Sri Atmananda’s heirs and family. For this reason, I am requesting that this activity be stopped.


        1. Dear William,

          I have posted above the take down notice and I removed the items from the website. You say “this is going against the wishes of Sri Atmananda’s heirs and family.” In light of the fact that Atma Darshan/Atma Nirvriti was published by his son who also published a book of his own teaching, I am having a hard time accepting that Atmananda or his son did not want these works to be made available. Perhaps you could provide some evidence. After all, Atmanada encouraged his students/disciples to investigate for themselves and to not take the word of someone else without verifying through their own experience.


  6. Hi there,
    I’ve been trying to find hard copies of these books but i cant seem to anywhere! Please could you send me copies of Atma Darshan and Atma Nivritti.

    Thanks in advance

  8. Purushotamji, I would also be very grateful if anyone could email me the 2 books atma-darshan and atma nivriti. Thanks a lot!! The value of what you provide on this page cannot be overstated


  9. I have been looking for Atma Darshan & Atma Nivritti for a long time now. If someone would be so kind as to send me a copy of these books I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!


  10. Hello, I am looking for these two books for a long time. Could you please send me Copy of Atma Darshan & Atma Nivritti ? Much appreciate it. Thanks.


  11. Hi Can you please send me the copies of atma-darshan , atma nivriti and Atmaramam ?
    Do u have its version in malayalam ? I have been looking for it for sometime. Any contacts ?


  12. If it’s possible for someone to share copies of Atma Darshan & Atma Nivritti I’d be extremely grateful. After having been reading notes on spiritual discourses, very slowly, for a couple of months, I can’t believe that Sri Atmananda is not more well known.

    He’s so elusive, perhaps that was his wish. I’d also be happy to connect with others interested in the Truth.


  13. Please someone share or sell or give me Atma Darshan and Atma Nirvriti? I’m looking and can’t find. I called the so called publisher different numbers and addresses. Please help.
    Thank you! Flavia
