All five of these contributions seem very crucial. But what is most interesting for me is the contribution regarding “the role and nature of consciousness.” This basic understanding in the Indian tradition that Consciousness is the fundamental building block of all existence, it is the Stuff of which we are made — makes the remaining 4 contributions possible. It is the secret Whole. And to know that we are also part of That Whole is the very crux of our lives. As Sri Sankaracharya says, “That which permeates all, which nothing transcends and which, like the universal space around us, fills everything completely from within and without, that Supreme non-dual Brahman — that thou art.”
Hello Everyone, sometimes the best sharing spaces are the non-formal, non-threatening ones! I think, it would be lovely if we could use this forum as one such place. To share honestly and profoundly our experiences with Indian Psychology! And what I mean by Indian Psychology is my own personal journey to know myself, the world, and the Divine! I would like to share here my failures and triumphs, my thoughts and feelings, my trials and ordeals, my questions and doubts, my adventures and experiences on this absolutely fascinating journey that each of us takes…. a journey of a lifetime (literally)! A journey I call self-discovery! Hope to have some genuine discussions on this forum.
And by the way, my name is Divya and I work at the Indian Psychology Institute.
