Five-day study camp on Upanishads from Dec. 26
The Sri Aurobindo Centre for Advanced Research (SACAR) will hold a five-day study camp from December 26 on the Upanishads.
Hosted in association with the Sri Aurobindo Foundation of Indian Culture, Sri Aurobindo Society, the theme of the ‘Living Within’ study camp dwells on the metaphysical and spiritual dimensions of the Upanishads, which Sri Aurobindo had described as the “pivot of all Indian metaphysics, the sum and goal of our spiritual experience.”
According to SACAR, metaphysically, the Upanishads promote the idea of transcendental unity, oneness and stability behind all flux while on the spiritual plane they uphold the aim and goal of life as the realisation of the unitary consciousness.
The workshop will elaborate not only the metaphysical and the spiritual aspects of the Upanishads but in all bring out the importance of the language used by the Rishis through an exploration of the Kena Upanishad and ‘Sri Aravindopanishad.’
The sessions would also deliberate on the yoga of the Upanishads and that expatiated by Sri Aurobindo. The discussion at the camp would involve episodes which form the outer mould of most of the major Upanishads and the symbolism they enshrine.
