Video : A Journey of Self-Discovery - "Respect for the Living" Released Online by Science of Identity Foundation

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 YouTube channel. In this enlightening 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.

Unfortunately, the true wisdom of yoga is exceedingly rare in our modern society that is dominated by a materialistic world-view. The belief that we are material in essence, and that material possessions, power, and fame will satisfy us, is rarely challenged. However, the profound yoga wisdom shared in this series of lectures from Jagad Guru offers an alternative world-view—one that will shed light on the true nature of the self.  

Jagad Guru begins this segment, Respect for the Living: Life’s Inherent Value, stating that there is a fundamental distinction between the living and the non-living. “Unfortunately,” he tells the audience, “what is happening in society today is that we are losing this fundamental understanding, losing our system of values. We no longer see the distinction between the living and the non-living, and we no longer treat the living differently than the non-living.”  

The discussion continues to develop in the next part of the series titled, Respect for the Living: Redefining Life. Jagad Guru centers his talk around a Court case where the court issued a legal ruling on the very definition of life. The lawsuit originated because a company wanted to patent a new strain of oil-eating bacteria. Although the case is almost 40 years old, it resonates with the current culture of materialism and exploitation of all living beings, both human and animal. And it acts “to further this view of reality that we’re just chemical machines—things.”
