Tattva essentially is Atma and Atma essentially is tattva. This tattva is the realization of realizations, Knowledge of Knowledge. This is what the Master calls Swabodh Atma. This Swabodh and I-ness are not different. The mundane life is a life of nescience and ignorance, of non-self knowledge. Atmatattva is the key to establish self knowledge in a man by eradicating his ignorance and non-selfness.
