Department of Living Enlightenment

Living Enlightenment, as envisioned by the Department of Living Enlightenment at KAILASA’s Nithyananda Hindu University, is the ultimate state of being free from conflicts, mood swings, and dilemmas. Bhagavān Kṛṣṇa describes this state in the Bhagavad Gīta as ‘Dharma-sams-thaapana-arthaaya,’ which refers to establishing oneself in the body language of Living Enlightenment.

The department explores the journey through 25 states of consciousness experienced at two distinct levels— with awareness and without awareness. Similarly, it delves into the mental phases one traverses, both with thoughts and without thoughts, guiding individuals towards the revered ‘No Mind State’ where existence is acknowledged but thoughts are absent. This state is recognized as the pinnacle of human life, characterized by spontaneous creativity and assured success.

The department imparts knowledge and facilitates a superconscious mutation process, leading students through the 25 states of consciousness, the seven upper lokas of the Vertical Timezones, and ultimately towards eternal bliss, Nithya Ananda.
