The quest for the infinite: Stories from Upanishads by Shri Surya Tahora

The Upanishads often include powerful stories which strike a deep chord in the heart and mind of seekers of freedom. They trigger curiosity about the nature of reality; make us identify with the characters of the story in their search for larger answers; and invite us to reflect further on the meaning and purpose of existence. These two sessions will recount selected stories from a few Upanishads that illustrate in a vivid manner the quest for the infinite, which finds its fulfillment in the teachings of Vedanta.

In this Weekend With Wisdom, Shri Surya Tahora will take us through The quest for the infinite: Stories from Upanishads.


Shri Surya Tahora


Surya Tahora studied Indian Philosophy with Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a well known contemporary teacher of Advaita Vedanta in the tradition of Adi Shankaracarya. Surya has a Doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences for the Industry from Paris University and a MBA. He has also attended an intensive executive program at INSEAD School of Management. He worked for several years in L’Oreal Group and Air France in international marketing and strategic planning both in Paris and Bangkok. He is currently Director, Centre for Wisdom in Leadership and Professor at SPJIMR (SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai, India) where he is teaching Spirituality and Management for MBA and Executive MBA students. Since 1999, Surya and his wife Neema Majmudar have been giving conferences, conducting seminars and retreats across the world, both in English and French, in the domain of Human Development and Philosophy. The seminars and retreats they conduct incorporate concepts of Indian Philosophy with Western Psychology, Ethics, Physics, Neurobiology and Management. These activities are aimed at guiding individuals and leaders of various organizations to be more objective, dynamic and compassionate in an increasingly interconnected and complex world. Finally, Surya has co-authored with Neema Majmudar the book ‘Living the Vision of Oneness: Exploring realities and growing as an individual’, which expounds the ways in which the vision of Bhagavad Gita and Vedanta can be incorporated in our daily life.
