Talk: Hindu Philosophy: Yoga, Vedanta and Tantra
19 July 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A philosophical talk by Avon Athens. This is one of four talks under the title ‘Towards a synthesis of philosophy, theology, and psychology‘. The talk is free to attend and starts at 7:30pm.
These presentations will review aspects of the Western tradition (the Abrahamic religions and the esoteric doctrines connected therewith), the Eastern tradition (Hindu philosophy and Yoga), Western philosophy both ancient and modern, and transpersonal psychology as a modern development.
These academically distinct areas share common ground and principles which only come to light when they are studied in combination. The general directive for this program is to explore these commonalities, to investigate various mysteries and enigmas of traditional teachings by cross referencing the systems with each other, and to relate the understanding thus gained to the problems of life in the modern world.
This work is the outcome of more than a decade of study, introspection and contemplation.The approach is original and uncovers various principles that are rarely explained clearly in the open literature. The content is not just of academic interest but also of practical relevance to anyone on the path of Self-realization.
