are basically dialogues between a sage and a student, or between
a student and a God in some cases. In some ways they are the world's oldest FAQ files. The questions
raised range from the abstract ("What is the truth of perception?") to the perennial ("Is there a God(s)?")
to the intimate ("Will I survive death?"). The answers are often unexpected, and quite relevant to our
spiritual practices and our daily lives.
My work focuses on the most inspired passages from the greater Upanis:ads, including the Mâñd:ûkyopanis:ad, the Brihadârañyaka, the Kath:a and Kena. These writings are centered on understanding the levels of consciousness, the meaning of Brahman [Reality] (to the extent that it can be accessed as meaningful) and the presence of Âtman [Principle of Soul]. Oddly enough, these writings do not presume an extensive familiarity with Hinduism, and should prove interesting to anyone interested in spiritual philosophy.
Here is the writing included in this section:
: This is a 250 page analysis and commentary on the first 7 verses of the Mâñd:ûkyopanis:ad, focusing on the four states of consciousness as mystical and metaphysical principles. Special attention is given to the sacred geometry presented in these verses, and to the insertion of Îshvara between Prâjña and Turîya.
Here are the writings that will be included soon:
The Brihadârañyaka Selections:
1, Chapter 3:
Distinguishes the presence of the Gods and the Asuras within our subjective and objective experience. I understand the Gods as Gods, as real beings whose radiance into the human soul stimulates our spiritual evolution. The Asuras, then are the Archetypes in the Collective Unconscious, ever vying with the Gods for our allegiance.
4, Chapter 3:
This is the beautiful dialogue between King Janaka and Yâjntilde;avalkya on the light of the Self. King Janaka repeatedly asks: "What is the light of the Purus:a?" Each of Yâjntilde;avalkya's answers takes us deeper into the heart of spiritual astrology.
