A talk by Dr Ramesh Pattni of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
Is mind matter? Is it other than matter? Never mind, doesn’t matter! In this talk we engage your mind and explore the concept of mind in Hindu systems of philosophy, in particular Yoga and Advaita Vedanta which have different conceptions of mind, how it is constituted and how it works. Find out about the sophisticated models of the mind which existed long before modern psychology came into being. Listen about the various states of the mind, different levels of the mind and the functioning of the individual in the world depends on the mind. Learn how the scriptures talk about the mind, particularly the Bhagavad Gita, and how it is the key element in meditation and all the pathways to liberation.
