Saddarshanam, Class 24

Greetings All, Shloka # 41: When there is the sense of bondage, anxiety for liberation is there. By the inquiry “for whom is the bondage?” one’s own Self, the ever free, is itself established.

Saddarshanam, Class 22

Greetings All, Shloka # 37: The knowledge of the established Truth itself is an accomplishment. Other accomplishments are indeed comparable to a dream.

Saddharshanam, Class 12

As far as dehathma bava (experience of limitation caused by physical body) is concerned it is same for gyani and agyani.  This experience of limitation is common on jagrada avastas and swapna avasta.  But in sushukthi avasta, there is absence of experience.  There is no third experience in sushukthi as the expreince of limitlessness does […]

Saddharshanam, Class 9

Verse 13 Can that be true knowledge when the knower does not know himself?  To one who knows oneself, the support of knowledge and the object of knowledge the two will vanish.
