Teacher: Babaji Satyanarayana Dasa
Total time 154 hours
Paramātma Sandarbha explains the relation between the individual living being and Paramātmā, as well as between Paramātmā and the cosmos. Paramātmā is the same Reality in His feature of supreme immanence.
The text has four parts to it. It commences by establishing the ontological nature of Paramātmā – Bhagavān’s manifestation in His capacity of upholding the jivas and the entire cosmos. It then proceeds to the discussion on the nature of the jiva and its bondage in the material world (second part) and further to the ontology of māyā (third part). It ends with the foundational principle of Śrīmad Bhāgavata Purāṇa that Bhagavān, not Brahman or Paramātmā, is the highest manifestation of Tattva.
Paramātma Sandarbha is the most philosophical of all the Sandarbhas and renders a profound exposition of Absolute Reality as Supreme Regulator, Paramātmā. In his classes, Babaji patiently and lucidly explains the intricacies of Jīva Gosvāmī’s terse anucchedas, thus giving his audience the key to understanding this difficult book.
A Bhakta is naturally very inspired to do service and is not stressed while engaging in it. Therefore, a Bhakta can work long hours with little rest. If you have to do a job that you don’t like, you get stressed and then you need to rest longer. Bhakti is rejuvenating to you. You don’t need a free weekend, or to go on a vacation.
