Yoga Vasishta

Memorial Day Camp Talk by Acharya Dr. K. Sadananda – May 26-27, 2012

Yoga Vasishta (written by Sage Valmiki) is a discourse by Sage Vasishta to young prince Rama who was in a state of dejection. Prince Rama tours his country and returns home in a disillusioned state after experiencing the apparent reality. Sage Vasishta guides Rama and explains Advaita in the following question-answer form.

  • Everyone suffers – the rich, the poor, the young and the old. Everything in the world perishes.
  • Nothing is permanent – Man is proud of his possessions and runs day and night after objects and pleasures, and yet deep down finds them to be pith-less and pain ridden.

Based on these observations and using selected verses explained by Swami Tejomayanandaji, Acharya Dr. Sadananda will address the following questions:

  • Who am I?
  • To whom does this Samsara belong?
  • What is the nature of the world?
  • What is the purpose of my existence?
  • What is the ultimate reality?
