Class 72: Twelve ways in which we can see the Supreme Soul and how they give us support and guidance in any situation in life (chapter 9 verses 16 to 18) 
  • Why the word aham (I) is used eight times in the 16th verse with 32 syllables and therefore consists of half the verse. 
  • Only one whose ego has gone away can naturally say aham ("I") many times over; nobody else can say it. If a person egotistic then he will not be able to say "I" naturally.  A study of the "you attitude" in management.  How people use the word "your" rather than "I" to cover and hide their ego.
  • A study of the many meanings of the word krtu that is regularly used in the Vedas and the Upanishads. 
  • A study of the Chandogya Upanishad about a person's resolve before performing actions.
  • Why whenever a priest is performing a yangna ceremony for the gods then while performing the yanga the priest says svāhā.  A study of the Srimad Bhagavadji where it is said that both Svāhā and Svadhā were daughters of Dakshā and Rasuti.
  • The power of svadhaa. Why we should make oblations to our ancestors. Why if you have a donation to a priest in the name of your ancestors or during the funeral ceremony of your ancestors then this certainly reaches your ancestors.
  • A study of the Paraskar Guhyasutra about the meaning of the word Avshadham (medicinal herb).
  • A study of Srimad Adi Shankracharyaji's commentary about the difference between Svadhā (ancestral oblations) and Avshadhi (medicinal herbs)
  • A study of mantras and how they protect human beings.  Swami Akhandandji's definition of the word mantra.  The three things that are necessary in order to chant a mantra.
  • Why wherever there is a goal in the world then you should worship God there.
  • How there is continuous movement in the universe.  A study of the sun, the moon and the earth.
  • How the entire world has the goal of the Supreme Soul.
  • The four meanings of the word gati: movement towards the goal, knowledge of the goal, attainment of the goal and the goal of liberation (or the Ultimate Goal).
  • Shrimad Adi Shankracharyaji's and Shrimad Ramanunjacharyaji's definitions of the words Prabhu (Lord), Sakshi (witness), nivasaha (abode), sharanam (refuge) and surad (friend).
  • The three places where the word sharanam (refuge) has come in the Gita.
  • A study of the Katho Upanishad about the features of the intellect.
  • A study of the Badra Sukta of the Vedas.
