In every period of man’s history, there has been a group of human beings who have evolved to a higher level than the rest and in whom wisdom still lives. It has been through the unsung dedication of these enlightened beings to humanity that man’s understanding of the world, man and mind has evolved and sophisticated.
The Academy of Absolute Understanding (AAU), was founded in 2009 by Dr Vijai S Shankar. Its foundation represented a significant step in man’s evolution towards realization of his own absolute nature.
The AAU is no ordinary academy dispensing knowledge. Its founder has understood mind deeply, perceiving that man is trapped in the mental conviction, albeit illusory, that ‘I am the doer, the thinker and the speaker’.
AAU shares that man lives in the duality of what is real and what is merely appearance; what is and what seems to be; what is eternal and unchanging and what is temporary and changing. Man attempts, in vain, to resolve this duality by searching for knowledge, piling distinction upon distinction and qualification upon qualification. In this quest man misses life itself, which is non-dual and undivided, without qualification and without distinction.
The academy has within its archives 850 CD’s and 450 DVD’s of talks by Dr.Vijai S Shankar. AAU has 15 published books by Dr. Vijai S Shankar and some of them have been translated into German, Dutch and Hindi. His latest book is ‘Intelligence IS Life’.
Presently, the Academy is in final stages completing a film on non-duality. Non-Duality will be explained to humanity through light and sound. The synopsis scheduled for September is. Humans perceive their daily life in the world as a reality. This is due to the belief of cause and effect. This belief creates thoughts of actions, which convince man that his day is filled with events and situations. Conclusions about these make way for emotions, which include feelings, such as misery and the quest for happiness, that man experiences. This film, based on the books written by Dr. Vijai S. Shankar, crosses the boundaries of mind by stripping away beginnings and endings and the concept of time, thereby exposing the reality of doership as illusory. The film unveils time and reality for what they really are, which is an optical and auditory illusion of light and sound.
