Q&A session lead by Swami Sarvapriyananda as part of a spiritual retreat at the Vedanta Society of New York on June 7th, 2020. List of questions with timestamps: • 2:30 -- What is the difference between individual and cosmic consciousness? How can we realize the reality of one consciousness? • 34:18 -- Why is private spirituality not spirituality? • 39:25 -- I am in school and have lost interest in studies. I would rather seek the spiritual truths. What are my options? • 47:27 -- How can the formless Brahman produce a universe of forms? • 56:16 -- How can Brahman in Sri Ramakrishna's Vijnana Vedanta be beyond cause and effect if the universe is a real manifestation of Shakti? • 1:08:11 -- I was brought up in a christian tradition but have become interested in Vedanta. Is is possible for a person to be pulled into Vedanta by no conscious effort? ► To support Vedanta Society of New York: http://bit.ly/SupportVedantaNY
