Prostrations to Lord Ganapathi, Ocean of Mercy and Kindness.
Salutations offered to Sri Shuka Paramarshi, the venerable Great Guru of the Rishis
Obeisance paid to Bhagawan Shree Krishna, the Supreme Self, The Perfect Being.
“Arunāmbara” is an English translation of a previously unknown discourse and discussion about Self-Enquiry and Self-Surrender, the four types of mukti, Aksara Vijnana, the truth about the Ambiguous Truth and other subjects between Sri Shuka Paramarshi and Swethāranyeswar.
Arunāmbara begins when Bhagawan Shree Krishna requests the Great Guru of the Rishis, Sri Shuka Paramarshi to help and educate a devotee of His namely Swethāranyeswar about the Higher Truths and to clarify all his doubts so as to single-mindedly focus on Bhagawan. Like all the Puranas, Arunāmbara has its origin in the forest namely Swethāranya meaning White Forest where the Great Sri Shuka Paramarshi finds Swethāranyeswar in contemplation about the Supreme Being but is bogged down by doubts about the Absolute.
