Part 1: Understanding Yoga
In the first part of the series, Acharya Das discusses the topic of yoga. He clears up common misconceptions of what yoga is, describes the ultimate goal of yoga, and explains the process by which the goal of yoga can be achieved. The real message of yoga is a message of hope, self-discovery, and boundless joy. He explains the yogic system of learning from a qualified teacher and reveals why it’s extremely beneficial for a sincere seeker of truth to seek out an authentic spiritual master to guide to them on the gradual and progressive journey towards transcendence.
Part 2: Spirituality
Spirituality is broadly defined as including a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves—typically involving a search for the meaning in life. Acharya Das explains the differences between the material and spiritual energies and will contrast the materialistic and spiritual world-views.
Part 3: Enlightenment
The foundation of enlightenment and self-realization is to understand that a person is not their material body or mind—that they are a spiritual being. This understanding, that a person is not matter, but is the spiritual occupant of the body, can be life changing in how a person determines their purpose in life, in what ways they pursue happiness, and how they see others and the world around them. To discover the answer to the question, “Who Am I?” Acharya Das examines three key aspects of the living being, their essence, position, and function.
Part 4: The Question Of God
In the fourth and final part of this series, Acharya Das delves into the topic of God. In particular, he addresses the question, “Is there a God or Absolute Truth?” From the yoga perspective, he explains the three levels of God realization, namely Brahman, Paramatma, and Bhagavan, and describes the experience and consciousness that result from these different levels of realization.
