True if atma is phenomenally experienced, but it is
not. Getting to the ultimate reality means
experiencing something which is not represented to
consciousness in sensory terms and which is therefore
ineffable. That is my understanding of it anyway. 
The Theosophial "atma" is really the amala vijnana of
the Chinese Yogacara school, renamed.
