Vedanta Center of Atlanta: “Integration of Action and Knowledge”
2/16/2014 11:00 AM
“Integration of Action and Knowledge” – Br. Shankara
Sunday, February 16
Venue: Vedanta Center of Atlanta, 2331 Brockett Road, Tucker, GA 30084
: (770) 938-6673
As Bhagavad Gita points out, as long as we live we have no choice but to act. Karma Yoga, the path of action, helps us spiritualize our everyday activities. Yet, Jnana Yoga, the path of knowledge, teaches that the very tools we use to live our daily lives — the body and its senses, the mind, and the intellect — are fundamentally “unreal,” and are to be renounced. Br. Shankara will explore what the scriptures and great teachers say about how to integrate these apparently contradictory approaches to God Realization.
Note: There is silent meditation in the Chapel from 10:30-11am, before each Sunday’s talk. After the talk, devotees and friends meet in the Monastery from noon to 1:30pm, for tea, coffee, snacks and a continuation of our spiritual fellowship. Please join us!
