The one single lesson of all the scriptures and sacred writings is that unless searchers undergo a radical transformation of the whole of their being, they cannot come to the Truth or God or the Real. In this course we will explore the various steps and stages of transformation as understood in the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian sacred literature and in the teachings of a few modern sages such as Blavatsky, Krishnamurti and Gurdjieff. The journey begins with an impartial self-inquiry, gradually leading to an increasingly willing submission to the Cosmic Intelligence pervading the vast universe.

Series $138, Single session $15

Ravi Ravindra and Priscilla Murray
Friday Evening – Saturday
From Siddhartha Gautama to the Buddha
March 29 – 30
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon and 2 – 4 pm

Based on the generally accepted narration of the life of Siddhartha Gautama, we will explore how he, born as a prince, was transformed into the Buddha, an Enlightened Being undertaking to set the wheel of Dharma in motion for the welfare of other searchers. During the workshop we hope to explore the experience of the various temptations and threats brought by Mara. We will try some relevant exercises to understand the famous remark of the Buddha: “Look within, you are the Buddha.”

Three sessions $45, Single session $15
