A talk by Dr Jessica Frazier of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
Just how close are we to the divine, and just what role do we play for God?
Are we part of the divine ocean? God’s body? Movements in God’s dance, or notes in a divine song? Or just isolated mirrors of the divine light?
Thinkers from Sankara to Caitanya, Vivekananda and Gandhi have debated these issues - and our relations to other people, our relationship with the divine, and our hopes for Moksha all depend on the answer. In this session we visit the Gallery of Vedantas, and see which one wins your vote.
