Did you see the movie The Matrix? How many of you felt a chilling sensation that the story was more fact than fiction?
The ancient yoga texts describe that are in fact living in a material matrix and everything that we accept to be real is nothing but temporary illusion - Maya.

In Atma yoga teacher training we teach special meditations and develop a daily practice that steadily awakens us from this illusory perception of reality. This allows our pure consciousness to emerge.

  • Divisions of Vedas The Vedas Shruti Smriti Nyaya Rg Yajur Sama Atharva Krishna Yajur Sukla Yajur Katha Svetasvatara Maitrayaniya Mahanarayaniya Taittiriya Isavasya Brihadaranyaka Aitareya Kauhsitaki Mundaka Mandukya Prasna Itihasas Puranas Sutras Upavedas Ramayana Mahabharata
  • Vedanta
    • Literally means 'end of the Vedas' but it is interpreted as 'culmination of the Vedas'
    • The vedic text on Vedanta is called “Vedanta Sutra”
    • Essence of Vedanta Sutra
      • Inquiry into absolute truth
  • Vedanta
    • The first verse of the Brahma-sütra is athäto brahma jijïäsä : “We must now inquire into the Absolute Truth.”
    • The second verse immediately answers, janmädy asya yataù: “The Absolute Truth is the original source of everything.”
  • Absolute Truth
    • Tendency with the Absolute Truth is not to understand all 4 parts as described in the Vedas:
      • Universal form = God as nature
      • Brahman = the whole of the absolute truth, energy of God
      • Antaryami = localized as the absolute truth in your heart
      • Bhagavan = the opulent divine personality, God as the person
  • Absolute Truth, cont’d.
    • Need to keep all 4 in mind.
    • A yogi may choose to only focus on one to create his own relationship with the Absolute Truth
    • Analogy:
      • The sun as 4 facets that are comparable:
        • The sun’s products (grains, plants, fruits, etc.)
        • Sunshine pervades the planet
        • Localized – everything we see the sun makes visible
        • The sun as a glowing ball in the sky
