TERM 2 2022 commences 23 May.
YEAR 2 'THE AIM OF PHILOSOPHY & YEAR 3 'THE WAY OF PHILOSOPHY'
Year 2: Course 5 Aim of Philosophy aims at awakening the individual’s ability to transform their world by enacting their sovereign freedom in the present moment. Without awareness of the present moment, it’s impossible to see the way forward.
Year 3: Course 8 It is through action, devotion and knowledge that the essential nature within everyone may be expressed. Human life needs to be directed by knowledge not just mere opinion, belief or supposition.
YEARS 4 'PHILOSOPHY & NATURE' & YEAR 5 'LEVELS OF EXISTENCE'
Year 4: Course 10 This course considers the law of three, which describes the operation of the three guṇāh, the three fundamental substances or primary forces or energies in creation. Knowledge of the guṇāh is the key to self-mastery.
Year 4: Course 11 Advaita philosophy describes how the self and its nature is concealed, covered, or hidden from view by five sequential koshas (or sheaths). Each kosha is progressively more refined and more subtle than the one before.
Year 4: Course 12 When a human being is in harmony with themselves, the heart is in harmony with the mind, and action reflects that harmony in a creative and direct response to the needs of the moment. The aim is harmony with all.
Year 5: Course 14 It is up to everyone to test philosophy in their daily life. When the effort is made, the way forward is revealed clearly and brightly. Practice keeps the philosopher true to his goal ; devotion makes him love the good above all; and service helps him uplift the world.
Year 5: Course 15 The Three Lines of Work, redefines the idea of work by setting out the principles of how to work on one’s self, how to work with and for others and how to work for the work’s sake. The ability to work gives dignity to the human being and purpose to his or her life.
Buddha, Plato and Śaṅkara all describe the world as a vast ocean across which we must journey on a raft that is well built and well-captained. The practical advice of these great teachers is a remarkable gift.
