Self-knowledge 03 The Illusion of This Moment.mp3
The third lecture about Shankaracharya's Atma Bodha, a Hindu scripture about the nature of the Self and how to connect with it. This lecture investigates the role of Maya, and the upadhis, koshas or bodies, all explained in relation with Kabbalah.
“Cyclic existence [samsara], which is full of attachments, aversions, etc., is like a dream. It appears to be real as long as one is ignorant, but becomes unreal when one is awake.” - Shankaracharya, Atma Bodha 6
The lectures are also playing continuously on Gnostic Radio:
"Those who only preoccupy themselves with their own spiritual progress and do not work for others achieve absolutely nothing. Whosoever wants to progress must sacrifice the self for others."
