Enlightenment – A Course on Higher States of Consciousness
January 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pmR1500
A COURSE ON HIGHER STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS THIS JANUARY
“The golden gate to peace in life is the experience of BLISS and it is easy for everyone to acquire this great glory and live it throughout life” – Maharishi –
16 LESSONS OF 1 HOUR EACH.
A treasure trove of the ancient pure knowledge of systematically developing your consciousness from transcendental consciousness to Cosmic consciousness to God consciousness and Unity consciousness.
The English writer Vernon Katz has this to say about Maharishi’s model of seven states of consciousness:
“His account of the growth of consciousness has a grandeur, a sweep, a clarity and a depth of psychological insight that has never, to the best of my knowledge, been equaled, let alone surpassed. Others may have had insight into this or that facet of the path but where they see the part he seems to see the whole. Not only is everything there but it is there in the correct order, with all the mechanics laid out. Each detail fits perfectly into a design that is more than the sum of its parts. The whole scheme has a rightness, an inevitability reminiscent of a great work of art.”
Saturdays: 19th January and 2nd, 9th, 16th February.
Time: 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
We will start and end each day with a group meditation.
Morning and afternoon tea will be served.
R1500-00 per person for the 16 complete lessons.

FEEDBACK FROM LAST COURSE:-
“Very enlightening lessons explaining the various levels of consciousness; how each level is linked and the importance of TM. This course makes me very excited to live in a greater degree of harmony and trying to achieve higher states of consciousness.”
“I am absolutely blessed to have access on all the knowledge of TM. Feeling grateful to have attended this course. There is definitely a realisation that there’s so much more out there that we don’t know. Thank you so much for having this course and accommodating us with such wonderful hospitality.”
“I have deepened my understanding of consciousness, what it means. I now understand my experiences. Listening to Maharishi talk, was blissful! Thank you. Jai Guru Dev.”
Instruction in Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation programme required.
Some Examples of Cosmic Consciousness
“He whose mind is unshaken in the midst of sorrows, who amongst pleasures is free from longing, from whom attachment, fear and anger have departed, he is said to be a sage of steady intellect.” – Bhagavad-Gita
“He is in his own Being, pure, never-changing, never-moving, unpollutable; and in peace beyond desires he watches the drama of the universe.” – Maitri Upanishad
“If one never leaves the source, what action would not be successful?” – Wen-Tzu
Jesus said, “I stood at rest in the midst of the world.” – The Gospel of Thomas
Example of God Consciousness
Tagore tells us that, during his experience of refined perception, “There was nothing and no one whom I did not love at the moment.”
Example of Unity Consciousness
He who sees everything as nothing but the Self, and the Self in everything he sees. Such a seer withdraws from nothing.
For the enlightened, all that exists is nothing but the Self So how could any suffering or delusion continue for those who know this Oneness? – Isa Upanishad
