Atmasvasth

Atmavasth is the culmination of the process that started with the MatkaMedicine blog that I published on Substack from Dec 25th, 2020 onwards.

You can read about the process in "About".

The site and all the content is free, unlike when it was hosted on Substack. However, only the articles under Featured Posts can be read without a log in. The rest of the articles need a sign in / subscription. That is all I ask.
