Spiritual Development: Vedanta Class
Mon. 31 October 2016, 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm AWST
Today we live in a world full of comforts and conveniences, yet in our world of plenty there is poverty of spirit. There is so much worry, anxiety, addictions, divorce and depression.
The reason for the paradox is, for years the focus of attention has been on developing the material world, with the intention of making our lives more comfortable and happier. However the result is that we are not any happier.
That's because there are two ingredients in the recipe of life: the individual and the world. Both need to be developed. Otherwise it's like building a skyscraper without a foundation. It's bound to collapse. And this is exactly what’s happening. People are not able to handle themselves or their circumstances.
The solution to the problem lies in developing ourselves by building a strong foundation. The ancient philosophy and wisdom of Vedanta provides the knowledge we need to build a solid base. Thereafter it doesn't matter how tall the building is, or how perfect or imperfect the building is, it will not collapse.
This class focuses on setting a solid foundation by developing you, the individual, so that you experience a less anxious, more exhilarated, balanced and happier life.
Currently we are going through the Vedanta Treatise: The Eternities.
There is an ancient Indian tradition called Gurudakshina, which means giving back to the Guru (spiritual teacher), out of respect and gratitude for what has been given.
The suggested donation is $5—$10 for first-timers, students or concession-card holders. Or $10—$20 for those who have benefited from the teachings.
The attitude of giving is essential for spiritual development. Unless we develop this attitude we will continue to suffer in life.
The law of life is that the more we give, the more peace, harmony, happiness and contentment we will have.
