Book Club is on Friday, February 19th 8pm Paris time.
There is no teacher, no teaching, no students. Our conversation will center around Shankara’s Crest Jewel of liberation on Maya. .....
“Maya, in her potential aspect, is the divine power of the Lord. She has no beginning. She is composed of the three gunas, subtle, beyond perception. It is from the effects she produces that her existence is inferred by the wise. It is she who gives birth to the whole universe. .....
She is neither being nor non-being, not a mixture of both. She is neither an indivisible whole , nor composed of parts, nor a mixture of both. She is most strange. . .....
Just as knowing a rope to be a rope destroys the illusion that it is a snake, so Maya is destroyed by direct experience of Brahman - the pure, the free, the one without a second” ....
-Adi Shankaaa c700CE founder of Advaita Vedanta
