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.
"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, "see again" 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." Anja
