INTRODUCTION TO ANANDA SUTRAM
Ananda Sutram is the treatise on philosophy, given in classical aphorism format, by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti. In 86 profound aphorisms Ananda Sutram covers with remarkable depth and clarity the core concepts of cosmology, ontology, science of mind, intuitional science, and socioeconomic theory. Many perennial philosophical controversies are given deep resolution; a number of philosophical misconceptions are corrected; and profound new insights on creation, teleology, mind, liberation, and society are propounded. This class will present an accessible overview of contents and significance of this monumental work.
Ananda Sutram provides the instructional framework for the philosophical portion of meditation teacher trainings offered by Transformation Education, so this class is recommended for those interested in entering meditation teacher training.
