One common lesson of all spiritual teachings is that a radical transformation of the whole of my being is required for me to relate with the Truth or the Real or God. In the Yoga Sutras much emphasis is placed on abhyāsa (practice) and vairāgya (non-identification) as means for cultivating the stillness of the mind so that the real seer can be present. Steady practice as well as real non-identification require staying in front of whatever I encounter without giving in to the common tendencies of like-dislike or the usual resistance to the force of transformation by addiction to the status quo. Staying with the awareness of whatever I see about myself, without even wishing to change what I see, brings about a subtle transformation from a higher level of consciousness. During the workshop we will explore the practice of staying in front in the light of the Yoga Sutras.

Two Zoom meetings with Ravi Ravindra
Saturday, April 18, 2 – 3:30 pm and Sunday, April 19, 2 – 3:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Krishnamurti frequently emphasized the importance of simply being rather than doing this or that action decided by my thinking. The right action needs to ooze out of my quality of being. He made remarks such as “Be totally attentive and do nothing” and “E!ort is an abomination.” In trying to understand the subtle meanings and implications of such remarks, can cultivating a state of actionlessness, as recommended by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita, assist in understanding them? According to Krishna the state of actionlessness is not inaction, but results from skilfulness in action while remaining detached from the fruits of action. What are the implications of this for daily living?
Also, we will explore another remark of Krishnamurti, namely, “You cannot ascend to the Truth, but the Truth can descend to you.” Is anything required from my side for the Truth to descend upon me?
These online Zoom meetings replace the scheduled weekend retreat that has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As humans, we are innately interested in the external beauty of nature and the intricate laws governing the whole cosmos, as well as the internal questions about who we are and why we are here. In this class, we will explore not what gets dogmatically classified as 'science' or 'religion,' but rather the goals, intentions, attitudes, and practices of those engaged in scientific research and spiritual search.
10-11 am CDT [UTC-05]
