Energy and Cognition is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 22 in Patna, India. This discourse is the fourteenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 2.[1]


The existence of God is conceived but can not be perceived and can not be expressed. We see only its expressions. Similarly, we see and feel the expressions of the Cognitive Faculty. Átmá is not seen or perceived or conceived personally or collectively.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that there are different forms of energy, and they are all a creation of the cognitive faculty. He then explains that everything started from the composure of bliss, but when the balance among the three forces started to break, every phase had a particular sound. Anandamurti goes on explaining that no one can see or directly feel the presence of energy except through its various styles of operation. Similarly, the existence of the cognitive faculty can only be perceived and conceived through its variety of expressions. Nevertheless this cognitive faculty is our existential counterpart.[1]
