~Adhyatma~

Adhyatma is a Sanskrit term that can be used to refer to the “highest self” or “highest soul.” It comes from the word, atma, which means “self,” and adhi, which means “above,” but can also be called “around it” or “beside it.”

In yogic philosophy, adhyatma is generally understood to mean the most personally transcendent, spiritual and highest aspect of the self. However, it can also be translated as “self-centered” or meaning one who refers a lot to themselves.
