It is rare, in the classics of Eastern spirituality, to get a detailed description of exactly what the liberated person would look like, how they would think, and what they would do. Our curriculum concludes with just such an extended depiction of the jivanmukta, a person “liberated in this very lifetime,” and how we can act like such a person as we proceed toward the fulfillment of our own spiritual path.
Topics include: “The Path to Liberation,” “The Individual vs. the True Self,” “Ignorance as Bondage,” “The Nature of Awakening and the Non-Dual State,” “The Difference Between Liberation and Bondage,” “Liberated Action,” and “Life Beyond Duality.”
Benefits of the Course:
- Discover exactly what is blocking us from total freedom and liberation from suffering
- Review the ways we identify with a suffering self rather than with our True Self
- Learn how to disappear all the irritating people in your life and transform any difficult situation
- Acquire the ultimate in “self-esteem” through wisdom about the nature of the True Self and Ultimate Reality
- Receive a detailed portrait of the liberated person, which can then function as paragon we can model in our own lives
