This beginners course teaches you the essence of Vedic philosophy and meditation by studying the meaning of (and chanting of) the sacred sound of creation, AUM.
We will be exploring the most important text from Vedanta, the Mandukya Upanishad. This ancient scripture sheds great light on the Vedic idea of enlightenment while also describing AUM as the means for attainment.
Other meditation forms take several months to learn and to gain benefits from, however by chanting AUM you can experience meditative stillness almost instantaneously!
It has been promised that one who understands the Mandukya Upanishad, and the secret of AUM described therein, has therefore comprehended the highest philosophies of Vedanta and need not study the other Upanishads.
AUM is a great tool for meditation, allowing you to transcend the gross, subtle and even causal levels of your being – so that you can experience the tremendous bliss of the fourth state, or Turiya (pure consciousness/beingness beyond the ego complex).
Fortunately, anyone can transcend mundane awareness and experience the total bliss of inner silence by learning to chanting AUM. This can be achieved in a very short amount of time. This practice combined with the theory of the Mandukya Upanishad creates an incredibly empowering synergy bound to propel you towards greatness.
