In this Talk:

  • Humanity sits at the top of the evolutionary scale. Only we have reflective consciousness: the ability to think about and gain wisdom from deeper insights. Consciousness is equally present in all beings but not equally manifested. Only humanity can fully manifest consciousness.
  • The mystical and powerful mantra Om – the Anahata Sound or Pranava (the original word of power) – resonates eternally in the universe. Poetically known as the ‘music of the spheres,’ we cannot hear it from our ordinary level of consciousness, but the perfected yogis can.
  • What happens after death? It’s a fundamental question that has haunted the minds of thinking people throughout the ages, provoking dogmatic and differing opinions. The Bhagavad Gita asserts that two things are certain in this world: a person once born is sure to die, and once dead, is sure to be born again. Rebirth, the Gita says, is overcome only after God-Realization or Self-Realization.

Program:

  • Talk and Powerpoint Presentation by Pravrajika Gayatriprana
  • Recorded Guided Meditation by Pravrajika Ajayaprana.

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna: The conversations between Sri Ramakrishna, the 19th-century mystic and promoter of interfaith understanding, and the brilliant, questioning minds of Calcutta. In Sri Ramakrishna, they came face-to-face with a type of Spirituality and mystical states they had only read about.
