Brahmavidya is the science of Brahman, the Knowledge of the Absolute, and here Swami Sivananda talks a great deal about what this means. He explains who a person with Brahmavidya is and their qualifications. He also covers many topics related to Knowledge of the Self and how to obtain it – some of the topics are Om, the Atman, the aspirant, self-control, discrimination, intellect, Purusha, and more. A wonderful lecture not to be missed.
Swami Sivananda tells us about the things that are Real, unchanging and absolute, as opposed to the things that are Unreal, changing and relative. He tells us our ultimate destiny and what the purpose of life is. You are the architect of your own fate. Everything is within.
Swami Sivananda tells us about Sahaja Avastha, also known as Turiya, which is the highest achievement and the goal of sadhana. It is unbroken awareness of Reality and the Self, and in this state you will have perfect mental balance in all situations.
In this especially good audio recording, Swami Sivananda talks about Vedanta, the teachings which come from the Upanishads, literally “the end” of the Vedas. The Upanishads are revealed scriptures which tell us about the transcendental Self, or Brahma Vidya, the true nature of the Self. He also discusses the 3 main points of logic for advaita vedanta as explained by Sankaracharya, and much more.
Part short lecture, part inspiring kirtan, Swami Sivananda describes the attributes of Brahman. These attributes describe qualities that the finite mind can understand, while the true nature of Brahman cannot be understood by our limited minds.
Swami Sivananda speaks a little about the Isavasya Upanishad, one of the revealed Vedic scriptures which talks about the nature of Brahman and the ultimate reality. This is a historical recording of Swami Sivananda, 1887-1963, one of the greatest yoga masters of modern India.
