Sun 8/13 : “The Reason Why” w/ Br. Shankara
Vedanta’s scriptures and teachers tell us that life’s misery — its pain, anxiety, and sense of imprisonment — is caused by seeing inaccurately, due to “maya.” As a jnana yogi, you may set aside that framework of delusion and see only Pure Consciousness — Brahman — everywhere, in everything and everyone, including yourself. This is realization, liberation!

As a spiritual seeker, you may have been troubled by questions like these:
- Why does this Universe exist? Does it have a purpose?
- Why am I here? Does my life have any special meaning?
- Why do I, and other human beings, behave the way we do?
- Why have we created such a painful, stressful world to live in?

Answers are found in the Upanishads and other scriptures, and in the teachings of Sage Vasistha, Adi Shankaracharya, Sri Ramakrishna, and Jesus Christ. This Sunday morning we will read and discuss some of those explanations, and explore how they can help you lead a life of ever-greater freedom and well being.

Sun 8/20 : “Think of Black and Black Will Think for You” w/ Br. Shankara

September 15 - 17 (Friday to Sunday) - Pr. Vidyaprana will continue her talks on consciousness and Advaita Vedanta. The Weekend Retreat topic will be Cracking Consciousness: Current and Classic Approaches.
