Themes for Discussion: 

  • The Scientific Mind: ‘The scientific mind develops and discovers the truth of things; not what you want to see, but what is there.’
  • Search for Truth: To find truth needs transcending opinion. ‘A search for knowledge must become a search for the truth of things.’
  • Training, not Stuffing the Mind: Accumulation of information is one thing, but thinking, reflecting, and being wise, not just well-informed, draws on the versatility of the mind.
  • Question, Seek, Realize: Vedanta encourages a questioning, scientific spirit. Find the truth for yourself. ‘What is that profound mystery in the human body?’

Join the discussion led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana.

Bhagavad Gita:
Join our exploration of a spiritual classic that’s enriched cultures throughout Asia over the centuries and inspired leading figures in modern times from Mohandas Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, and Aldous Huxley to astronaut Sunita Williams who took a copy of the Bhagavad Gita to the international space station.

We’re dipping into Swami Ranganathananda’s 3 volume commentary: Universal Message of the Bhagavad Gita. The late President of the Ramakrishna Order, the Swami was a world thinker and cultural ambassador for India, sponsored by the Government to travel to over 50 countries around the world giving lectures.
