Glimpses of Hinduism, Vedanta and Advaita Vedanta - Part 1

What if there is a belief system that tells people that they can experience their God here and now, instead of in heaven after they die?

 

Bro T. H. Hauw has been intrigued by Advaita (Non-Dual) Vedanta and trying to understand it for about a year. He is now happy to share what he has learned of the vastness and great depth of Vedanta.

 

In Part 1 he will give us a glimpse of Hinduism -- some of its stereotypes, the scriptures, some key concepts of Vedanta such as Brahman, Maya, God, Jiva and Turiya the Pure Consciousness and finally know some of the great teachers of Advaita.

 

He will cover Advaita Vedanta in more details in Part 2 of his talk.

We will be talking about both the higher and the lower mental planes. This is a continuation of the lectures on death and after and the astral plane. A short description of the heaven world and its inhabitants will be covered. Does everyone go to heaven? We shall soon find out.

 

The Mental Plane is also the realm of the Mind, i.e. the plane where thought arises. We will discuss further the subject of elemental kingdoms and the elemental essence that ensoul thoughts. Hence, this lecture serves as an introduction to 'thought-forms', one of the most important aspects of nature. This lecture is useful, if not a prerequisite for the 6th lecture on 'Thought-Forms'.

This is probably the most important lecture in the whole course as knowledge of thought-forms will help us conduct ourselves better and live a life in harmony with nature. The lecture will include the following: What are thought-forms? How your thoughts affect others, near or far from you. The virtue of having the right thoughts and the consequences of bad thoughts.
