Meditation and Self-Knowledge
Nov 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The last group this session is June 25 before going on hold for the summer and resuming Sept. 17.

The class is divided into a 20-30 minute meditation followed by a lecture style class teaching a Vedanta text. Vedanta is a means to understanding the reality of nonduality behind the phenomenal world. It is a tradition of teaching from the Vedas, which are ancient Sanskrit scriptures of India that form the philosophical basis of Hinduism. The meditation is directly connected to this style of teaching, as it involves getting in touch with one’s essential self and seeing directly what we are studying in the text.

The weekly classes form a continuity and are not suited to an occasional drop in but rather for those that can, as much as possible, come every week.
