Realizing the Atman is the height of Advaitic Realization

Awareness is of two types—awareness of the objects and awareness of the subject. Awareness of objects is created by sense organs when they come into contact with their particular objects. This awareness is perishable because anything that is created, as a rule, dies a natural death in time.

On the other hand, awareness of the subject or contentless awareness is eternal as it is not created. This eternal awareness, the Chaitanyam as it is called in Sanskrit, is the Atman or the Self. Realizing the Atman is the height of Advaitic Realization.
