Friends Event: Human Self/Divine Self in Hinduism: a Logical Approach

Leicester Friends Event
Saturday, 5 March 2016 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre
Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF

We shall explore why in the traditional Hindu view the self is not the body, is immortal and uncreated and goes through a process of reincarnation. We shall also examine why there is a supreme self that serves as a cause of the human self and supervises the law of karma to ensure that as one sows so one reaps.

A talk by Anuradha Dooney of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

Once again the New Year heralds hope for improvement in all areas of our lives. We all know we are capable of great intention and noble goals, yet behaviour often falls short of the plan. This talk does not promise to 'Change Your Life' or 'Make you Happy', but it does offer insights from characters in Hindu sacred texts who seem to get it together in difficult circumstance. How might a particular characteristic of Prahlad, Pariksit, Narada, Queen Kunti, and Valmiki, amongst others, help us today? This personal selection of 'habits' is certainly no definitive list, but aims to provoke reflection, and further discussion for drawing up your own list.
