Brahmavidya

This article is a reissue from the year 2013.

SwamiS_1Brahmavidya 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.
