Fragrance of Vedanta in English Literature

Upanishads describe a Seer as ‘Kavi’. Poetry is an inspired and spontaneous expression of a soul absorbed in a higher state of consciousness. Thus, Santana Dharma, or Eternal Principles of life are revealed through great poets in all languages.

Classical English poems and literary pieces contain valuable lessons for human life. Many of the great English poets have been influenced by wisdom of Vedanta either directly or indirectly. One of the greatest contributions of Swami A. Parthasarathy is interpretation of such poems from the point of view of the values contained in Vedanta.

This series of 4 talks intends to cover the following topics:

  1. Perfected Human Being based on the poem ‘The Village Preacher’ by Oliver Goldsmith
  2. Practical Aids based on the portion of ‘Polonius’ Advice in the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  3. Objectivity – Sakshi based on the poem ‘Even This Shall Pass Away’ by Theodore Tilton
  4. Spiritual Path based on the poem ‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth
