What we're about

The purpose of this meeting is to encourage those in our community who wish to learn more about Theosophy, spiritual philosophy, and open minded inquiry to have a place to congregate and listen to lectures or attend classes. The Theosophical Society in Wheaton is a nonprofit organization, and always has different speakers and activities. This meetup is a great way to see what is going on nearby!

Advaita Study Group

Theosophical Society in America

Each week we read and discuss chapters from an Advaita book (currently The Truth Is by Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji)) and listen to or view Advaita-oriented materials from various online sources. You are welcome to visit, join, or rejoin the group at any time. Facilitator: Edward Moskowitz, student of Theosophy and Advaita Vedanta, Phd in physics, 45-year meditator, explorer of truth. $5 suggested donation. What is Advaita, or nonduality? Advaita means nondual or "not two." This oneness is a fundamental quality of everything. Everything is a part of and made of one nondual conciousness. Often the question arises, "If it is all one thing, why don’t I experience it that way?" This is confusing oneness for the appearance of sameness. Things can appear different without being separate. Just look at your hand for a moment. Your fingers are all different from each other, but are they separate? They all arise from the same hand. Similarly, the objects, animals, plants and people in the world are all definitely different in their appearance and functioning. But they are all connected at their source—they come from the same source. This one Being that is behind all life has an infinite number of different expressions that we experience as different objects. taken from: http://endless-satsang.com/advaita-nonduality-oneness.htm
