Talks in Central London on The Yoga of Knowledge and Wisdom
Start Date : 5 Aug 2016 TO End Date : 09 Aug 2016UNMISSABLE: The Yoga of Knowledge and Wisdom
Swami Tejomayananda, the Global Head of Chinmaya Mission, will be visiting London in August 2016. During his visit, this highly revered teacher will be giving a series of FREE evening talks in English from Friday, 5th August to Tuesday, 9th August at Logan Hall in Central London entitled ‘The Yoga of Knowledge and Wisdom’.
On Saturday, Sunday and Monday (6th to 8th August) there will be special pre-talk classical music and dance performances by accomplished artists from around the world in honour of, and with gratitude to, Swami Tejomayanada for his selfless and tireless service to humanity for the past 30 years.
Description of the talks:
These talks are based on chapter 7 of the Bhagavad Gita; a universal, timeless guide to a well lived life. This chapter is unique in that the Almighty teacher-cum-charioteer, Sri Krishna, declares boldly to the mighty warrior-prince Arjuna, who at that moment, in the middle of the battlefield, is disillusioned, impotent and fear filled: "I shall declare to thee in full this knowledge, combined with realisation, which being known, nothing more here remains to be known". Wow!
Sri Krishna proceeds by giving some mind-expanding insights into the nature of lower and higher consciousness with one of the most visual being “as pearls on a string, I am the string.” The all knowing teacher goes on to explain what exactly is needed for a seeker to know and experience this state, addressing the various challenges and obstacles along the way.
By the end of the Chapter, our protagonist Arjuna (or in other words, you and me) comes to realise that sincere effort is required not only to understand the theoretical and logical explanation of the sublime, i.e. to gain Knowledge of the higher, but also what commitment and practice is needed to effortlessly 'know', to experience and abide in higher consciousness, and thereby to live in Wisdom of the Divine.
Over 5 evenings in Central London, Swami Tejomayananda will take us from Knowledge to Wisdom in a simple, humorous and captivating manner.
