Sunday Bhagavad Gita Study Meetup (Online)

Online event

This is a weekly Meetup that meets every Sunday to study the Bhagavad Gita verse-by-verse. Though systematic and thorough, the objective is not so much to master the text as to imbibe the principles it teaches about life and living. The focus, then, is to live the philosophy and not merely learn it. The class is conducted by Dr Janki Santoke (http://janki.santoke.com), a senior disciple of Swami Parthasarathy (http://www.vedantaworld.org/). Admission is free. It is possible to pick up the philosophy, even if one joins mid-way in the textual study.

The Meetup is live streamed on Zoom & YouTube. Zoom link will be provided on your RSVP for attendance. Subscribe to the YouTube channel: Team Janki Santoke to get a notification when the session goes live. Videos on YouTube are available for viewing on the channel even after the event.

For more details, contact the coordinator on:[masked]. For first timers, we request you to get in touch with the coordinator, for any last minute changes.

NB: This Meetup is different from the Bhagavad Gita Meetup on Fridays. It is on a different chapter of the book.

Weekly Sessions on Learning to Think

Online event

We are all kept from complete fulfillment by “something”.
“Something” that is within us.
“Something” that is difficult to identify.
It is different for each one of us.
Yet, unless that thing changes, our life will continue to be the same.
And we will continue to ask ourselves:
“What happened?”
“Why didn’t my life turn out like my dreams?”
“What else could I have done?”
We have been thinking about this, but not finding the answers, isn’t it?
Why?
Because “thinking” is the problem.
But you know what - thinking is also the solution!
Let alone the avalanche of self-help material on “thinking”, even life transforming philosophy asserts that:
20% taking in information. 80% thinking about it.
Even if you have heard the following...
Don’t just read or listen to philosophy... but reflect... think about it.
For every 1 hour of reading/listening... 4 hours of reflection.
That is the key to growing.
So the question then is,
“How do I reflect? How do I know that I am thinking correctly?”

To delve into these critical questions, Dr Janki Santoke, is conducting an online masterclass on her book, How Do You Know What You Know? (https://www.howdoyouknowwhatyouknow.com/).

The sessions are live streamed on Facebook & Zoom. To watch them on Facebook, 'Like' the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/howdoyouknowwhatyouknow to get a notification when the session goes live. The Zoom link will be shared when you RSVP for the event.

To watch previous sessions, check the Playlists on the aforementioned Facebook page.

So, let’s together investigate our thoughts, review them and decide which are for our welfare and which are not.

Vedanta Treatise Study Meetup (Online)

The book 'Vedanta Treatise' by Swami A. Parthasarathy (http://www.vedantaworld.org) presents the ancient philosophy of Vedanta. A philosophy which enunciates the eternal principles of life and living. The author believes that living is an art, a skill, a technique. Few have understood it to be so in the span of human history. Nevertheless, you need to learn and practice the technique of living. As you would for playing a musical instrument or flying an aircraft.

This weekly Meetup, meeting every Saturday,systematically studies the book 'Vedanta Treatise'. The study is done in the spirit of applying Vedantic principles to life so as to enhance productivity even while maintaining peace of mind. It is conducted by Dr Janki Santoke (http://www.janki.santoke.com).
