Our meeting on Tuesday, September 4th, began with HSO President Pavitra Krishnamani initiating Aarthi, which all members participated in. After we offered our prayers, Content Coordinator Harsh Vathsangam began the discussion on the topic of the Upanishads, a collection of ancient philosophical texts that developed over time from the Vedas. We learned that one of the core teachings of the Upanishads deals with the direct experience of the center of consciousness, the absolute reality known as Brahman. Religious Director Swami Atmavidyanada went into greater detail describing the six types of Upanishads as well as their significance. We went on to describe our meanings of consciousness and how we may imagine it and moksha - or if such things can even be imagined. For those who could not make it to Monday's meeting, we would love to hear your questions, comments, and/or opinions regarding the Upanishads and consciousness. Thank you! - HSO
