Adi Shankara’s view of Cosmic Creation

Indica Moksha (Advaita Academy) is pleased to announce the 4th edition of ‘Global Festival of Oneness’ (GFO2023) celebrating one of the foremost thinkers and socio-cultural-spiritual architects of Indian civilization – Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya Bhagavadpada.
Since last three years, we have been hosting the Global Festival of Oneness on the occasion of Shankara Jayanti as a one-month long online celebration of the life, works, and legacy of the Shankaracharya who is the most exceptional and revered teacher in Advaita Sampradaya.

The festival has been conceived as our tribute and show of reverence towards the entire Advaita Guru-Parampara that starts with Bhagavan Sadashiva, has Adi Shankaracharya in the middle, and is still continuing with our own Shrotriya and Brahmanishta Acharyas today.
This year also we are celebrating the month long festival from April 25 till May 24. The festival will feature nearly 50 Sages, Scholars, and Seekers who will share about Acharya Shankara’s life, philosophy and the relevance of his teachings today.

There will be two sessions every day.
The morning session (7:00am-8.00am IST) will focus upon a thematic treatment of Shankaracharya’s Prashtana-traya Bhashya and his other works aimed at benefiting serious seekers of Vedanta.

The evening session (7:00pm-8.00pm IST) will focus upon highlighting not only the life and contributions of Shankaracharya, but also on ‘Applied Vedanta’, how Advaita is relevant today in different fields.

Interested should register for the zoom session. Register once & attend to all sessions

Sri Vijay Kapoor

Sri Vijay Kapoor has an MS in computer science from UC, Berkeley and MBA from University of Santa Clara. After an engineering career with IBM in San Jose, he had a 28 year career as Marketing Manager with Hewlett Packard. In 1976, he was so impressed by Swami Dayananda Saraswati that he took a 2 ½ year sabbatical from HP and he along with his family moved to an ashram in Piercy, California to study with Swamiji. During the course, Sri Kapoor studied the principal Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Brahma Sutra, along with Paniniya Sanskrit. After graduation, Swami Dayananda asked Sri Kapoor to be the Secretary for the newly formed Arsha Vidya Pitham, and to be a co-founder of the ashram in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, whose board he still serves today. He took early retirement in the year 2000 to devote his time to the study and teaching of Vedanta and Sanskrit, and in 2003 established Arsha Vidya Center. Sri Kapoor currently teaches three Vedanta classes per week to about 150 students; in addition he started 6 Gita Home Study groups in this area.
