Themes for Discussion: 

  • Mindfulness – On-the-Spot Intervention: We explore, with the help of mindfulness, how to head off negative emotional responses to challenging situations in our lives.
  • Being Fully Conscious: The cultivation of mindfulness helps to limit undercurrents of negativity that can so easily permeate our lives. Such distracting negative states of mind render us partially conscious. ‘Living half-consciously is living half a life.’
  • The Five States of Mind: We explore the five states of mind, ranging from dullness, distracted and scattered through to concentrated and mastered.

Join the discussion led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana.

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.
