Dive into the heart of Indian philosophy with our session on "The Essence of Vedas." The Vedas, ancient Sanskrit scriptures originating in the Indian subcontinent around 1500 BCE, stand as monumental texts that have profoundly influenced the socio-political and cultural landscape of Indian civilization. These texts are not just historical artifacts; they are living traditions that continue to resonate through the ages.
In this immersive session, we will explore the cosmic visions and key deities that form the bedrock of Vedic thought. We will delve into the Vedic ideas of cosmology, comparing the heliocentric and geocentric models of the universe as understood in these ancient texts. The concept of sacrifice, central to Vedic rituals and philosophy, will be examined for its deeper symbolic meanings and role in shaping societal norms.
Furthermore, we will reflect on how these ancient texts have shaped Indian culture, influencing everything from daily rituals to grand festivals and from ethical codes to philosophical discourse. This session is an invitation to journey through time and thought, understanding how the Vedas have acted as a guiding force in the evolution of one of the world's oldest civilizations. Whether you are a philosophy student, a seeker of knowledge, or simply curious about the roots of Indian culture, this session promises to be an enriching experience.
Limited seats; reserve early! We would request a suggested donation of CHF 20-25 for the space.
