Study of Samkhya Karika Led by Acharya Kaushal Kumar
About the course: The science of yoga discovered by our great ancient sages is the only science in this world that gives you the knowledge of our own self. You may say it like this that whether all other knowledge is worldly while the science of yoga is meant for knowing our own self by purifying our mind and intellect. Indian great sage Kapil, who is regarded as the father of Samkhya philosophy, is the pioneer and forefather of the Indian spiritual journey. Almost all Indian philosophies and sages are indebted to this great master. The root of yoga is also found in the Samkhya Philosophy. The theory of yoga is found in Samkhya philosophy. Not only yoga philosophy but all other Indian philosophies except Charvak philosophy, roots are found in Samkhya philosophy.
Samkhya and Yoga philosophies are sister philosophies. With the sincere study and practice of these two philosophies, every human problem can be solved very easily. All our day-to-day problems ie. physical, mental, emotional, and intellectual have the root in our mind. Social unrest and all relationship problems are the product of our ego and ignorance. This ignorance is following us from our past innumerable lives and will continue to follow till wisdom and knowledge are not achieved. The duo of yoga and philosophy helps us to achieve knowledge of wisdom. It devises us the way to change the pattern of our own minds. To get free from our irrational mind or predisposition and create a new rational mind is the real and permanent solution to our every problem. Samkhya and Yoga give us the way to change it according to our own will and thus be the master of our mind and destiny and finally achieving excellence and liberation.
