Every thinking adult human being must find his or her own answers to basic questions like who am I, what is the purpose of life, what is right and what is wrong, etc. and must lead a conscious life based on that. If not, it is a life wasted; a great loss to mankind.

Weekend With Wisdom: Vedanta for the Scientific Minded

According to the French Nobel Laureate Romain Rolland, “The true Vedantic spirit does not start out with a system of preconceived ideas…. each man has been entirely free to search wherever he pleased for the spiritual explanation of the spectacle of the universe.”

This Vedanta “trekking” would be a “guided tour” by Sri Gokulmuthu Narayanaswamy who will explore the terrains of the world around us and within us, using Vedanta as a “map”.
The weekend session would explore topics like what is science, what is philosophy, what is religion, how do we know what we know, who am I, what is this world, and many more such fundamental questions.
