Topic Details

Vedanta in Everyday Life (2 talks)
Swamini Svatmavidyananda

Vedanta is the knowledge of oneness. It reveals that everything in this universe is non-separate from a single conscious, all-knowing and all pervasive being, Īśvara. What ramifications might this teaching have for our daily lives, especially in contemporary times, marked by global pandemic and domestic unrest? How can we harness the powerful vision of the Upanishads to grow spiritually and abide in the glory of the self? These and other questions will be addressed in the two talks on this subject.

Enhanced Rashi Analysis using the Puranic Histories of the Nakshatras
Bill Sinclair

The Rishis, in their wisdom, chose to convey essential information about each of the Nakshatras in the form of oral histories. Through careful study and analysis we can gain deeper understanding of the impulse behind the natal planets in a chart and the goals of the Rashis themselves. We will trace the histories though each of the 27 nakshatras and draw links to the common traits and symbols that are commonly known for each Nakshatra.
