Topic: Adhyāsa (projection) in Vedānta
The apparent contradiction between the truth of oneself as limitless and non-dually whole and one’s everyday reality mired in fear and sorrow is due to what Ᾱdi Śaṅkarācārya calls adhyāsa or subjective projection in his famous introduction to the Brahmasūtra. In this retreat, we will study the introductory bhāṣya of Ᾱdi Śaṅkarācārya in detail with a view to gaining a clearer understanding of the orders of reality – especially īśvara-sṛṣṭi and jīva-sṛṣṭi – and understanding the truth of oneself as free of saṃsāra.
