LAW OF THREE
COURSE

This course considers in detail the law of three, which describes the operation of the three guṇāh, the three fundamental substances or primary forces or energies in creation.

This course takes a more systematic and practical look at the three guṇāh. The knowledge of the guṇāh is the key to self-mastery. Knowledge of their play brings greater understanding to all aspects of life, providing perspective, understanding and the opportunity to respond freely to every situation we meet.

A prerequisite for enrolment:
Completion of the first 9 courses.

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

The first course in the 4th year, The Law of Three, explores the ancient sāṃkhya teaching of the three fundamental substances running through everything and reveals how this teaching can help to bring harmony and balance into life.

“Everything is governed by the law of three
and this law of three works from the top
to right down to the bottom of our creation.”

- Śrī Śāntānanda Sarasvatī, 1967
