This 16 hour Video unfolds the kingly Mandukya Upanishad, which negates the waking state entity as our primary identity, and Gaudapada’s famous non-creation commentaries. Vedanta generally presents the creation of the universe as an effect of a prior cause which is suitable for beginning inquirers. Gaudapada, one of the great luminaries in the teaching tradition, presents a very difficult idea: the universe was never created! (ajativada). As such it is generally only taught to advanced inquirers. It is often touted as the ‘final’ teaching because the idea of causality tends to obscure the fact that our suffering is due to ignorance, not the result of uncontrollable forces: the circumstances of one’s birth i.e. the law of karma. One’s destiny is difficult to change but ignorance is relatively less difficult to remove, once you know what it is. The commentaries will soon be published separately but have been included with the video for maximum benefit. This wonderful text is suitable for intermediate and advanced inquirers. Video and Text $45/Audio and Text $35.
