Artist’s depiction of the Hindu concept of Atman; Aang and Korra’s Cosmic Selves
In Hindu philosophy, Atman refers to the innermost essence of an individual. It lies beneath and guides all the activities of a person just as Brahman, the Absolute All, underlies the workings of the whole universe.
When Aang encounters his Atman, it is during the act of unlocking his Crown Chakra and relinquishing all worldly attachments.
Korra, however, achieves enlightenment when she connects with the cosmic energy of the universe, and in doing so uncovers the fundamental truth of Atman - it is both part of and identical to Brahman. Thus, she is able to project her Atman into the physical plane of existence, having become a master of time and space.
The true mind can weather all the lies and illusions without being lost. The true heart can tough the poison of hatred without being harmed. Since beginning-less time, darkness thrives in the void, but always yields to purifying light.In the era before the Avatar, we bent not the elements, but the energy within ourselves.
Do as the Ancients once did. Connect with the cosmic energy of the universe. Don’t bend the elements, but the energy within yourself.
I kind of had to, yeah. Zutara is my heart and soul, and this will be perfection forever bye.

The Eastern Air Temple in the eras of Avatar Aang and Avatar Korra
This week, a few of us got a real treat and visited master blacksmith, Tony Swatton, who made Sokka’s space sword for the web series, Man at Arms. Turns out his studio, Sword and the Stone is right up the street from Nickelodeon. Tony was kind enough to show us his amazing workshop and craft us a few small pieces of metal made from one of the chunks of meteorite he used to create the sword. If you haven’t seen the video, it’s well worth watching. His craftsmanship is incredible. The texture detail on the sword blade is amazing and I love the White Lotus emblem on the bottom of the hilt.
Each Avatar has a different story to tell...
