Bringing Īśvara into your life
July 2, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - July 4, 2021 @ 5:00 pm€230
A beautiful teaching from exceptional teachers Neema and Surya who will visit us from India to share their extensive knowledge in Vedanta.
Isha Upanishad starts with a bold statement, all that is here is Īśvara (the cause of the universe). The rest of the text goes on to prove how this statement is not a matter of belief but is available for understanding. Through the intricate logic used, the listener appreciates that there is no way to contradict the vision of Upanishad that there is nothing else in the universe but Īśvara. The Bhagavad Gita shows that anyone who understands and incorporates this reality while living, is a transformed person!
This weekend retreat will explore verses from the Upanishads and Gita that show the nature of Īśvara and how to bring Īśvara into our lives so that our life becomes a blessing.
Neema Majumudar & Surya Tahora have studied with Swami Dayananda Saraswati, renowned scholar of Vedanta. Both have gone through intensive courses of Vedanta studying texts such as the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and many scriptures in great depth with the commentaries of Śankara, and the Pāṇini system of Sanskrit grammar. They have been teaching Vedanta in India and abroad for several years. You can read more about their work on their website: http://www.discovervedanta.com/
Neema and Surya teach in a captivating way, with story telling, traditional chanting and guided meditations.
