Kathopanishad - Episode 36

Three Confusions in Life

The study of kaṭhopaniṣad will teach one that one’s true nature as the atman is always pure.  The senses, mind and buddhi are not required. All that is required is just this belief that one is the atman through the practise of adhyātma yoga (yoga of the Self).  However,  due to the mind, one is affected by the three confusions in life: jagat, jīva, and īśvara.

  • jagat: I am the body observing the world through my physical eyes.
  • jīva: I am a spark of divinity.
  • īśvara: There is one God who is in everyone.

In this discourse, Swami lovingly guides us to move beyond these three confusions.
