Weekend with Wisdom: Vedanta in the Light of Evolutionary and Neuro Biology
What is the purpose of life? Is human life special? What is the purpose of humanity? What gives happiness? Is spending in charity better than spending in luxuries? Are material goals worth pursuing? Is there value in self-discipline? What is the way to sustainable happiness? These questions, which used to be the domain of philosophy and religion, are today being thrown light by advances in Biology. And, surprisingly, they are matching with what Vedanta and Yoga have been telling us. In this talk, we will have a discussion to touch upon some of these points. This will help us understand the body and mind better. With this understanding, we can pursue spiritual sadhana more effectively.
