Topic: ANANDA MIMAMSA - What is Ananda?
This retreat will focus on ananda. Happiness seems to be simultaneously the most sought after and the most elusive thing in the universe and, therefore, the quest for ananda be extremely confusing and frustrating. In this retreat, we will look deeply into the nature of happiness, as unfolded by the Vedas. Through employing the unique method of comparing the degrees of ananda enjoyed by the jivas in this world and other celestial realms, the Taittiriya Upanishad unfolds the nature of oneself as joy, thereby redirecting the quest for ananda into the quest for the very nature of oneself. Revealing that happiness is centered on the self, the subject, rather than the objects that one pursues, the study of this portion of the Taittiriya Upanishad imparts a sense of direction into the nature of one's spiritual enquiry and growth, regardless of whether one is a recent or an accomplished sadhaka.
