Science of Identity Foundation Publishes 'A Journey of Self-Discovery': Understanding Life Versus Matter

Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda teaches about the essential nature of the self and how to achieve our natural condition of happiness & bliss.

Science of Identity Foundation has released a live webinar series entitled A Journey of Self-Discovery, which is available for free viewing on its official live streaming channel. In this illuminating multi-part series, Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda teaches about the essential nature of the self and how to achieve our natural condition of happiness and bliss.

Throughout the series, Jagad Guru addresses the prevalence of materialism in today’s society. The belief that we are material in essence, and that material possessions, power, and fame will satisfy us, is rarely challenged. When people focus on material objects instead of their spiritual essence, it can cause feelings of confusion, depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Understanding and embracing our true eternal nature can lead to a deeper purpose of existence which brings with it an increase in harmony and lasting happiness. 

In Life and Matter: Which One Am I? Jagad Guru sets out to answer fundamental questions about the essence of the living entity. He puts forward a spiritual world-view which differs greatly from the prevalent matter-only or materialistic view of reality. He explains that there is more to humanity than just a material body. People are more than matter; they are spiritual in essence. This life particle, or spirit soul, is only temporarily housed in the material body. 

As the series continues in Life and Matter: Fundamental Differences, Jagad Guru goes on to elaborate upon the specific characteristics of life and matter. He details the eight primary distinctions between how matter behaves in the presence of life and how it behaves when it’s not in the presence of life. This is offered as evidence that life is distinct from matter.

Jagad Guru wraps up the discussion by explaining that although the life element is not directly perceivable, you can perceive its presence by looking at the difference between the way matter behaves when that life particle is present and when that life particle, the person, is no longer present.
