Science of Happiness According to Yoga Vedanta – Discussion Series – 14 October

Spiritual Evening Discussion

Friday 14 October, 7.00 – 8.45 pm

Join us for Silent Meditation at Vedanta Hall, 15 Liverpool Road, Croydon, from 7 pm
or via Zoom from 7.30 pm:

Themes for Discussion: 

  • Degrees of Reality: In the highest flights of Eastern Philosophy, we face the radical conclusion that the whole of existence is, at most, only relatively real. Modern physics also has its take on this: discovering that our senses can only reveal a limited version of the swirling energy within and around us.
  • The Mysterious Mithya: Mithya is ‘that which has no existence.’ From the standpoint of Brahman (God), the world of plurality is mithya because it is nothing but consciousness with a name and form.
  • How Do Thoughts Begin?: We explore the growing connections between Yoga Psychology and the Neuroscience of Consciousness.
  • Self Knowledge: Self Knowledge brings the greatest clarity; it is easily manoeuvrable, calm and balanced. The uncluttered mind generates a beautiful atmosphere within.

Drawing on the book: ‘Science of Happiness – According to Yoga Vedanta by Pravrajika Divyanandaprana: a compilation of her talks given to students at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi in 2018.
Pravrajika Divyananandaprana is a nun of Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order. Thousands view her talks on YouTube.
Our discussions tap into the wisdom of major world faiths and thinkers relating them to our daily life. You’re welcome to share your insights, experiences, and doubts with the group.
