Books > Teachings of Lord Kapila
Translated and Written by A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Narrated by Amal Bhakta Dasa
With Background Music.
Lord Kapila is a renowned
sage of antiquity and is the author of a philosophical system
known as Sankhya, which forms an important part of India’s
ancient philosophical heritage. Sankhya is a system of metaphysics
that deals with the elemental principles of the universe; it is
also a system of spiritual knowledge, with its own methodology,
and culminates in full consciousness of the Supreme Absolute.
Lord Kapila, however, is
not an ordinary philosopher or sage but an incarnation of God.
This book deals with His answers to His mother’s enquiry
about how to overcome ignorance and delusion and attain spiritual
enlightenment. The underlying theme running throughout His answers
and throughout Srila Prabhupada’s commentaries on them is
that one can achieve this goal by practicing bhakti-yoga, the
process of linking one’s heart to the Lord’s heart
through loving devotional service.
This series, with Sanskrit,
translations, and purports sheds light on such topics as the Significance
of the Guru, the Psychology of Consciousness, the Characteristics
of a Self-Realized Person, the Science of Meditation, the nature
of Transcendental Knowledge, and the Process of Ultimate Liberation.
