THEMES FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Levels of Joy: Ultimately, as we evolve we will access infinite levels of joy. Such was the experience of the sages.
  • Perfectly Equal: The highest vision of Vedanta is ‘equality of vision.’ Seeing the infinite potential in all beings. That is also the height of Democracy.
  • Whatever Be Your Station: However humble may be our position in society, all can reach spiritual heights.
  • No Need for Heaven Above: We could create heaven here, instead of hell.
  • Bhakti – The Easy Path: Millions grapple with meditation, which is to grapple with the restless mind. It can be a disheartening challenge. But devotion, chants and songs can easily settle the mind.

Bhagavad Gita:

We’re exploring 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.
