The Teachings of Sanat Kumāra in the Chāndogya Upanishad

For both self-development and Self-realization, this portion of the Chāndogya Upanishad from the Sāma-Veda provides valuable insights and instructions. Nārada, the scholarly disciple, first learns many levels of upāsana from Sanat Kumāra, the youthful, illumined sage. These practices take us to greater and greater realization of the potential in us to act effectively and achieve brilliantly in this phenomenal world. Towards the end of this 7th chapter of the Upanishad, Nārada receives the wisdom of liberation, called bhuma-vidyā where the dividing line between others and us is erased. The realization of Absolute Oneness takes place.

Valuable Takeaways:

  • 15 Facets of the Hidden Potential within Our Personality
  • 7 Values that can Bless us with Great Moral Strength
  • A Powerful Insight into the Limits of All Worldly Accomplishments
  • A Simple yet Profound Glimpse of the Source of Real and Lasting Happiness
  • The Place of Right Food as a Catalyst of Spiritual Growth
