Identification with the perishable body is the greatest obstacle to Self-Knowledge, says Swami Sivananda in this very detailed synopsis of some of the most important points of yoga and vedanta. He discusses the 3 bodies, the 5 sheaths, the 3 states of waking/dream/deep sleep, the 6 changes the body goes through, the tattvas, indriyas, 5 pranas, the antakharana, and much more. A lecture not to be missed.
