ANCIENT SANKHYA PHILOSOPHY on Time, Timelessness, Consciousness, Matter, and Mind presented by Pratibha Gramann, Takshila University. Within ancient traditions, the significance of time, timelessness, consciousness, matter, mind, ego, and I-sense are written about extensively. It may take a leap of trust to explore the ancient philosophy of Sankhya, but for the more adventurous, Sankhya offers an incredible hypothesis for exploring the tenets and dimensions of time, timelessness, matter, consciousness, conscious and unconscious, I-sense, and mind. Sankhya is an intellectual’s paradise of ‘intellectual discrimination’ of the cosmos, universe, evolution, and inner knowledge. The key, eternal principles of consciousness and matter and all concepts set forth in this presentation are integral concepts of Sankhya. It is recognized as the oldest and first-recorded system of Indian philosophy. Sankhya is dated to have been written by sage Kapila approximately 5,000 years ago and prior to the time of Buddha. References in the Upanishads regarding the nature principle are found in Katha Upanishad (3.10,11) and Svetasvatara Upanshad (1.8, 6.13, 1.10, 1.13, 4.10). Sankhya’s in-depth treatment of concepts currently debated by physicists, philosophers, and psychologists is relevant, amazing and awesome. For modern humankind who seeks to delve deeper into the possible truths about the universe, the nature of humankind, and time, these ancient secrets prove to be very interesting! Slide presentation will include the process of evolution described by Sankhya from timelessness to the golden egg of creation (hirangarbha) when time began. Presentation will show relationship between the principles of mind, ego, I-sense, consciousness, matter, conscious and unconscious, time and timelessness."
