The Mystery of Consciousness(DVD,CD)


*Select an option

We all take it for granted that we are conscious, but if we stop to ask ourselves how it is that we know we are conscious, easy answers prove elusive. The speaker touches upon some of the mysteries of consciousness by asking direct and simple questions: “How do you know that you’re conscious?” “Are we conscious when we’re dreaming?” “Does consciousness change?” “Is consciousness limited to humans?” “What is the difference between ordinary waking consciousness and that of the sage who is established in a deep state of meditation?” This talk was given at the 115th Annual Summer Convention of the Theosophical Society in America. 2001. 33 minutes.
