Wisdom of the Mandukya Upanishad

Wisdom of the Mandukya Upanishad

The Mandukya Upanishad, with only 12 verses, is the shortest of all the Upanishads—the later scriptures of the Vedas. Yet it is said that by understanding just this single Upanishad, one can attain the highest reality, the goal of life. Swami Rama studied the Mandukya Upanishad more than 20 times. In this video series drawn from its wisdom, he expands our view of the inner world and shows us the way to our spiritual destination.

Learn how understanding the three prime conditionings of the mind leads to the shortest shortcut to samadhi and why we need the “unlearning method” to reach there. Explore the four states of consciousness, the highest of which is beyond even samadhi. And hear a story about learning to know ourselves directly rather than through the opinions of others. You will find all this and more in this series on the Mandukya Upanishad.
