VCA Talk Sep 19 2021

On Sunday morning, Sept. 19th at 11am, Br. Shankara will talk with us about Thou Shining, Everything Shines! Join us online (no in-person activities at this time) and participate in the discussion!

Here’s what to expect this Sunday morning:

    • first, a short guided meditation
    • then, a 30-35 minute talk on that subtle yet brilliant inner light, which empowers your very existence and reflects your true original nature
    • finally, we’ll finish with our usual  Q&A and discussion

Chapter 6, Verse 14 of the Svetasvatara Upanishad says,
“There the sun shines not, nor the moon and stars, nor does the lightning illumine, much less this earthly fire. He alone shining, everything shines after him. By his light all this universe shines!”
