Throughout the history, one of the deepest questions mankind has asked itself is the question of its true identity: who am I?
While science refers human beings as a biological organism, western philosophers understood that this perspective isn’t sufficient. Our body is changing continuously, yet we remain ourselves. For example, it is claimed that every seven years all the cells of our body are being replaced. So the body I have now is not the body I had seven years ago, yet I remained. So what is this “I” that remained? Is it my mind, is it my memories or is it something else? For this question, western philosophy couldn’t find a clear answer.
Yet the question “who am I” does have a clear answer. An answer that was known to several ancient eastern philosophies, such as Advaita Vedanta and Jnana Yoga, but this answer was reached through a meditative process of self-inquiry, and therefore, couldn’t be easily explained to someone who hasn’t experienced this process by himself.
In the Video above, the answer to the true Identity of the self is revealed step by step, in a way that is comprehensible to everyone.
