It would have been better if give the meaning too, so i furnish it as under:
So advaita.
Advaita means without duality. Advaita acyuta, Krsna and Krsnas expansion. Krsnas expansion: Baladeva, Sankarsana, Aniruddha, Pradyumna.

In essence, Atman is the best, The Divine part of everyones multidimensional organism.
Atman is the Brahmanic Fire, when we become this Fire, and the Atmic energy kundalini precious content of the money-box, where the best of us, which has been accumulated in all previous incarnations, is stored.
