Class 121: How to create a shield around yourself when the world gives you difficulties and a study of the Panchadashi of Vedanta about how we are fragments of the Supreme Soul and become living beings in the world that draw to us the senses and the mind that rest in nature (chapter 15 verses 6 to 7) 
  • A study of the Katho Upanishad, the Mundaka Upanishad and the Shvetashvatara Upanishad about how neither the sun nor the moon nor the fire can illuminate God's supreme abode from which those who reach it never return.
  • A study of the Purush Suktam of the Vedas about why the moon is the symbol of the mind and the Sun is the symbol of the eyes.
  • A study of the Taittiriya Upanishad about how the Supreme Bliss is an experience that cannot be described by words, but it can be described by experience.
  • A study of the Chandogya Upanishad about how repetitive behaviour is a rule of the material world, and unrepetitive behaviour is a rule of the Supreme Soul.
  • A study of the Krushna Ashtakam by Shrimad Adi Shankracharya about how the Supreme Soul brings new experiences every day.
  • A study of Kālidās' description of the Raghuvansh (the lineage of Lord Rāma).
  • The three examples used by Vedantis to explain the state that comes after reaching which one does not return:  ghatākāsh (ether in the pot), mathākāsh (ether inside the hermitage) and māhākāsh (ether of the great sky).
  • The uniqueness of Srimad Adi Shankracharya's bhakti (devotion) in the Devi Aparadh Kshamapana Stotram.
  • How to create a shield around yourself when the material world gives you difficulties.
  • How we as fragments of the Supreme Soul become eternal living souls in the world of life and draw to us the senses and the mind that rest in nature.
  • Why the māyā (illusion) of the Supreme Soul is divine.
  • The consciousness of Brahman is passing through each and every person and it just depends on what type of instrument we become.
  • A study of the Yajur Ved about how all energy comes from the Supreme Soul and we are all fragments of the Supreme Soul.
  • A study of the Panchadashi of Vedanta about how the soul inside a person's inner being, where the light of consciousness resides, is called a being when it attains the life breath, and this being becomes associated with the material world.
