Cosmic Alchemy, The Play of Time in Consciousness – Ep. 1 – Vibhbuti Series – Deepak Chopra & Eddie Stern
Cosmic Alchemy, The Play of Time in Consciousness
Yoga for Enlightenment
In this new series of Yoga for Enlightenment, Deepak and Eddie Stern discuss the first vibhuti; explaining the power of understanding and transcending time, and its continuous flow of present.
Vibhuti #1: Time
3.16 Knowledge of the past and future can be derived through samyama on the three parinamas.
The three parinamas are the essential attributes (dharma), defining characteristic (lakshana), and state as old and new at the same time (avastha).
“Since there is intrinsic unity of all objects, all objects might change into anything else;” “Efficient cause is the real cause. Space, time, etc are only practical variations of the efficient cause.”
If you understand the efficient cause, then you understand all sequences and all manifestation, past or future.
