Paramātma Sandarbha is the third book in the series of six treatises called Ṣaṭ Sandarbhas. It is an elaborate essay on the nature of Paramātmā and provides a clear and accessible distinction between Absolute Reality’s manifestation as Paramātmā and Bhagavān, which is relatively unknown even to specialists of Vedanta. Among the four Sandarbhas that delineate the knowledge of sambandha, Paramātma Sandarbha is the most important because it analyzes the nature of the self and its conditioning by māyā.
The text has four parts to it. It commences by establishing the ontological nature of Paramātmā – Bhagavān’s manifestation in His capacity of upholding the jīvas and the entire cosmos. It then proceeds to the discussion on the nature of the jīva and its bondage in the material world (second part) and further to the ontology of māyā (third part). It ends with the foundational principle of Śrīmad Bhāgavata Purāṇa that Bhagavān, not Brahman or Paramātmā, is the highest manifestation of Tattva.
Paramātma Sandarbha is the most philosophical of all the Sandarbhas and renders a profound exposition of Absolute Reality as Supreme Regulator, Paramātmā. There is no other work in the entire gamut of Indian theological and philosophical literature that throws light on this subject so lucidly.
