Group discussion led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana, a senior nun of Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order.

Themes for discussion:

The Three States: We pass through three states each day: waking, dream and deep sleep. Even when the mind is not operating in deep sleep, still some experience is there. ‘I had a restful sleep,’ we say. That points to some subliminal consciousness. That, the Upanishadic sages say, is the source of happiness deep within – our Soul.

The Shadow Ego: “The ego is nothing but a shadow of the Self.” The Ego, identifying with the body and mind, disappears in the blazing light of our true ‘I’ – the Atman.

Drawing on the book: Science of Happiness – According to Yoga Vedanta by Pravrajika Divyanandaprana: a compilation of her talks given to students at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi in 2018 •Pravrajika Divyananandaprana is a nun of Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order. Thousands view her talks on YouTube.
