Dharma in Daily Life: Practical Application of the Upanishads

Saturday, March 21, 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Jane ClearyUpanishads are knowledge-based texts that unfold the true nature of ourselves, and in so defining this nature, also analyze and present the nature of the world as well as the ultimate source of it all. This knowledge is not ordinary in that these texts not only tell you that you are free from all limitations; they also prove it. We will discuss various verses in the tradition of first listening (sravana), then reflecting through questions and discussions (manana), and finally contemplating (nididhyasana). The workshop will also include some meditation practices (upasanas) that serve to sharpen and steady the mind.
