MORE INFORMATION

 

Subject: The Eternal Imperishable Absolute, the supreme Brahman is the dual reality of the Vedanta. It has no equivalent in the religions of dualism, all of which require a personal god. This state of Nirvana does not mean mere annihilation but rather entry into another mode of existence. This is the abode of immortality. It is only accessible by the Mystical Experience. In the East this is called Samadhi. At its highest level it is known as asaṃprajanya, where one’s personal karma is broken.

Symbol Evocation: The Seven Chakras (or wheels) are centers of subtle energies, which are activated without physical motion. These energies are often called Prana or Kundalini. They exist within the astral body of a person, and when activated they become the force structure of the mystical experience.
