Śreyas and Preyas: Lessons from the Kathopanishad
LIVE SATSANG, Sunday-Thursday
This series of talks will unfold the life-choices of freedom from saṃsāra, and the indulgence of saṃsāra as presented in the Kathopanishad. What might be the pitfalls of missing mokṣa (liberation), the purpose of life, and repeatedly making the default choices of seeking instant gratification? The talks will conclude with practical tips to stay on track in the journey of life for a sādhaka.
