Pradhana In Samkhya Philosophy

In Samkhya philosophy, the word pradhana is applied to prakriti (primordial nature), which is the mother of first cause whole of the material world with all objects of experience, gross as well as subtle. That is because it is the chief entity among all the objects which form the material world. Actually, the purusha (self) is para (higher, greater) than the prakriti. This fact is explicitly stated in the Katha Upanishad (I.3.11) (avyaktapurusha parah). But the purusha is a spiritual principle outside the domain of the three gunas, while prakriti or avyakta is a material  principle inside the domain of the triguna. Hence there is really no comparison between the purusha and prakriti, and it is customary to apply the world ‘pradhana’ to the prakriti, and not the purusha, because it transcends the material world. Pradhana, like purusha, is an eternal principle. It is called avaykta, alinga (unpredicated), prakriti, or mulaprakriti. As it constituted of three gunas, it constantly underg

Lasting Happiness Is Impossible In The World

Vedanta says that we are not this body and mind, but are essentially divine. This divinity is at the root of our very existence and is the source of infinite Knowledge and Bliss.
