Episode 42: The Astral Universe

Swami Kriyananda

When we die, we lose our physical bodies — but what remains?

Swami Kriyananda talks about subtler, more esoteric aspects of ourselves — as well as how to become free from ego.

  • Can you tell us a little bit about the astral body, the physical body, and the causal body?
  • When we are created, are we a vibration that emanates from God?
  • Is it possible for people to experience their causal body?
  • I’ve heard stories about people who were able to separate their astral body from their physical body and travel in that way. Is that possible? Is it a helpful practice?
  • Can you tell us how to overcome “spiritual ego”?

Ask Me About Truth

Swami Kriyananda answers questions about truth and many spiritual subjects, as he learned about them directly from Paramhansa Yogananda. (These talks were recorded in 2012, before Swami Kriyananda's passing.)
