    The Unconscious in Hindu Thought

    Wednesday, November 4, 2015
    8:00 PM

    "The Unconscious in Hindu Thought” with Satish Reddy, M.D.

    The idea of the unconscious is a vital and fundamental component of the Hindu psyche. Originally formulated in the speculative Hindu texts, The Upanishads, the concept of the unconscious was detailed, formalized and operationalized in the classical Indian philosophical systems of Samkhya and Yoga. Hindu thinkers devote an extraordinary amount of time, effort and attention to unconscious mental processes and their role in human motivation and behavior. Although similar to Freud’s classical psychoanalytic paradigms of the unconscious in many ways, the Hindu notion differs in the moral and spiritual framework within which it operates.
