More about the Course


This webinar will cover Panchadashi Chapter 10 Nataka-dipa-prakarana (The Lamp of the Theatre). In this chapter, using an allegory of a lamp and its illumination of a theatre, the nature of the Self and its illumination of the world of objects is expounded.

Just as the lamp illuminates the entire theatre without participating in it, the Self similarly changelessly illuminates the entire drama of life.

The various aspects of the metaphor such as the audience, dancer and musicians are compared and contrasted with the entities illumined by the Self such as the body, mind and senses. 

Also, the lamp continues to illuminate even in the absence of the dancer and the rest of the people. Likewise, the Self continues to remain as all Illuminating Knowledge Principle even when the ahankara, buddhi and so on are absent.

Highlights

  • The nature of the Self as non-participatory witness and self-luminous contrasted with the lamp of the theatre

  • The elements of perception involved compared and contrasted with the lamp and it’s objects 

  • The nature of the Self exemplified with the lamp in the theatre 

  • The process of Realising the Self
