Seminar

Three Month Vedanta Course – Carbondale Colorado – June 9- 28, 2018 – James Swartz

"Just wanted to express my huge gratitude to you for making the Seminar with Ramji accessible to us all. It is an incredible gift. I could not join you in the States but am steadily working my way through all the satsangs via the lifestream link.
Being able to see this in the middle of my day to day ordinary life is enormously beneficial for niddidyasana. Application moment by moment is helped so much and kept on track by being able to tune into the satsangs every day. It is really wonderful." 

ShiningWorld proudly presents a three-week donation-based live and livestreamed course that teaches the essence of Vedanta at True Nature Healing Center in Carbondale, Colorado — June 9-18.  Details are included below and posted at https://vedanta-3-month-study.eventbrite.com

3. Bhagavad Gita- Knowledge of Isvara (GOD) - Chapters 7-12  

Like the knowledge of karma, which is gained through yoga, the knowledge of the Self is gained through Vedanta, the path of s/Self inquiry, that culminates in non-dual vision, which is non-separate from non-dual love.  Vedanta is a systematic means of inquiry into the nature of: (1) the world (2) the person that experiences the world and (3) the Unseen Factor...God...that controls the world and directly affects the behavior of individuals.  To develop a loving relationship with God, knowledge of God is required and the Gita's six chapters provide this most precious knowledge.  This seminar presents the Vedantic method for knowing God, the energies and values operating in the field of existence and the topic of bhakti, devotion to God, which leads to non-dual love.     


Recommended Reading:  The ‘Essence of Enlightenment’ or ‘Atma Bodh’ by James or ‘Vedanta, the Big Picture’ by Swami Paramarthanda, provides a straightforward overview of the path of Self inquiry for beginners and intermediate seekers.

One Month Bhagavad Gita Vedanta Course – Carbondale Colorado –  June 6-24m 2018 – James Swartz 

ShiningWorld proudly presents a two-month donation-based course that teaches the essence of Vedanta in the form of the Bhagavad Gita at True Nature Healing Center in Carbondale, Colorado — June 2018.  Details are included below and are posted at http://www.truenaturehealingarts.com/  Recommended reading is available at ShiningWorld.com

Knowledge of the Self (Isvara) – Self Inquiry – June 6-24, 2018

Like the knowledge of karma, which is gained through yoga, the knowledge of the Self is gained through Vedanta, the path of s/Self inquiry, that culminates in non-dual vision, which is non-separate from non-dual love.  Vedanta is a systematic means of inquiry into three topics: (1) the world (2) the person that experiences the world and (3) the unseen factor (Isvara) that controls the behavior of the world and impacts unknowingly on us.  What you don’t know, you don’t know to your detriment. 

This intensive month of Vedantic Inquiry focuses on Bhagavad Gita, Chapters 7-12, the Knowledge of the Dharma Field in which individuals work out their karma and the Ordainer of the Field, Isvara, sometimes known as God.  It covers an analysis of the three energies that comprise the Field, the discrimination between the Field and the Knower of the Field, the values operating in the Field and Devotion to God (Isvara) otherwise known as Bhakti Yoga.  

If you are unable to attend in person, livestreaming on the internet, with backup viewing on line, is an excellent alternative.

Den Tidløse Undervisningen av Tradisjonell Vedanta

Urgammel Visdom for Den Moderne Søkeren

 

Dette seminaret er en introduksjon som utfolder den tidløse, fullstendige undervisningen i selv-gransking dvs., tradisjonell ikke-dual Vedanta.

Undervisningen begynner med en analyse av våre motivasjoner for å søke opplysthet, så fortsetter den ved å oppklare de mange moderne opplysthets myter. Videre, gir den en klar definisjon av opplysthet og diskuterer de nødvendige kvalifikasjoner, behovet for en upersonlig undervisning og en kvalifisert lærer.

Det diskuteres også selvets natur og til slutt introduseres de ulike teknikkene (yoga) som fjerner hindringene for ens forståelse av seg selv som evig grenseløs, ikke-dual ordinær eksistens-bevissthet.

Dette kurset er basert på boken ”Essens of Enlightenment” av James Swartz, Ramji  og “Vedanta, The Big Picture” - der alle de grunnleggende temaer i Vedanta presenteres på en elegant og metodisk måte. Det som enhver oppriktig søker vil sette pris på å få vite om før i det hele tatt en velger den spirituelle veien. 

Selv om det er ingen kostnad for dette kurset, stoler vi på dine donasjoner for å hjelpe til å dekke utgiftene våre og opprettholde undervisningene. Din økonomiske støtte er vital for videreføringen av dette arbeidet. En donasjon er egnet.
