Introduction to the Class...

Swami Vivekananda is known to many but perhaps not his unusual speaking and presenting style. Echoing the breadth of love, vision and universal practices of his teachers, Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sri Ma (Holy Mother, Sri Sarada Devi), he spoke to all about many ways to truth. One night he might speak of the love of God, the next night, on Karma Yoga. But whatever he spoke about became the be-all and end-all, as if that path was the best, as if that method was what he truly believed.

Vivekananda's capacity to see and experience different paths touches on the concept of universality, as it is used in this class. Universality is the quality in everything that tends towards the infinite and draws all things together. Understood and practiced, it colors the world with tolerance, acceptance and love..

The class will meet once a month, usually the last Sunday, at 2pm. Please come!

The class is available to all. Study the site for a better sense of how its structured and how it will run from month to month. The site is also a work in progress! We'll go on making changes and adding details as time goes on. Special features right now include a class discussion group, a place to post items of interest and various reference pages. Other features will be added soon. We will have participants online from around the country and elsewhere, including teachers and experts in various fields of spirituality and philosophy.

This promises to be an exciting and valuable experience! If your interested in participating, please email me at baba@motherstrust.org or call 616-293-6884. The class can be joined at any time and will go on for several years. We intend to study and discuss a talk a month from Swami Vivekananda's Complete Works!

General Class Information

This is a new study program for 2016. In it, we will explore universality - that is, that quality in all things that tends to express the infinite nature of of the universe. The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda will be used as our springboard. The class is especially geared to individuals interested in how universality can be utilized and made practical in todays complex world. Individuals and groups from around the country and the world are welcome to participate!

GENERAL COURSE STRUCTURE: Our course facilitators are Swami Atmalokananda, Indra Makhija and Swami Tapasananda. In addition, we have several scholars of Swami Vivekananda's writings and talks. Each month, one talk or writing from Swami Vivekananda will be studied. Through in-house classes, online discussion and assignements, we will explore the various aspects of universality. A class at Mothers Trust will meet each month (usually the last Sunday of the month at 2pm). Then online discussion will follow until the next month. We start on April 25th with an introduction to the course.

We will be using the Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda as it appears on the following web site: http://www.ramakrishnavivekananda.info/vivekananda/complete_works.htm

Online discussion will be available 24 hours a day, where students can post questions or comments and where interaction between class participants can take place. Part of the monthly progression may include "chat" sessions, where students and staff will log on together to address a sub-topic for that month. Also, an email page will let you send messages to fellow students. Click on the blue links at the top of this page to see other course related pages and things to do.

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND WE HOPE TO ADD RESOURCES AND NEW INTERACTION METHODS OVER TIME!
