Radhanath Swami: “Consciousness: The Missing Link” | Talks at Google
Despite decades of advancement in science and technology, we are somehow facing increasingly complex problems to solve — both individual and collective — even in the most affluent nations: identity issues, high divorce rates, unexpected violence, high school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, environmental crisis, energy shortage, unemployment rates, unstable economy, rising healthcare costs, etc. Why and where is the disconnect ?
The Vedic model of consciousness that’s described in the ancient Sanskrit texts of India provides dramatically fresh insights into the root cause of these problems — and their solutions — in the most unexpected way. In this talk, Radhanath Swami will explore the inner workings of consciousness based on this model and discuss its application in the modern day context.
