A follow-up and conclusion to the lectures about Atma Bodha by Shankaracharya, this lecture gives an overview of our psychological structure, and how to transform our experience of life. Explains the consciousness, ego, and personality in relation with astrology and kabbalah. Gives practical examples of how to recognize the difference between unmodified, free consciousness and the consciousness that is trapped, conditioned, and which causes suffering.
This lecture was recorded at the 2012 Gnostic Retreat in Australia.
This is a lecture from the free online course Self-knowledge: The Importance of This Moment
The fundamental basis of all spirituality is the urge to escape from suffering, and the means to do it is always the same: awaken the consciousness, and liberate it from conditioning. This short course introduces the practical methods that result in liberation from suffering. By applying the principles explained here, anyone can begin to experience for themselves the reality of the path to genuine happiness.

"As fire is the direct cause of cooking, so knowledge and not any other form of discipline is the direct cause of liberation, for liberation cannot be attained without knowledge." - Shankara
