(*Event Closed*)

We are delighted to announce a new offering for this semester only.  We have our first Visiting Scholar from India, Srivida Chaitanya, who will offer a course on the Path of Vedanta.  The session will be once a week for one hour (same session offered at two different times).  It begins next week.  The flyer is attached.  Feel free to share with those who would be interested.

What is Vedanta?

Vedanta is the Science of Life. It is based on the Upanishads, the ending portion of the sacred scripture of India known as the Vedas. And Veda means – “to know” or “Knowledge,” so Vedanta is Eternal Knowledge. The course will be an introduction to these timeless teachings.
