Join Ravi Ravindra on a four part Live Zoom Webinar Series, on four Saturdays this October, as he delves deep into the teachings of The Christ.
The spiritual teachings of the Christ, like other serious teachings, calls for a radical transformation of our whole being, amounting to a new birth, born of the Spirit, requiring freedom not for myself but from myself. For the sake of this spiritual awakening what is needed is an impartial and deep self-inquiry and a baptism of fire and spirit, leading to sacrifice of me-me-me.
The gnostic Gospel of Phillip says, Christ came not to make us Christians but to make us Christ, one with the Mysterious Ultimate. Only those who are able to practice the discipline taught by the Christ can be regarded as his disciples. The teaching of the Christ, like all other transformational teachings, is not easy to practice. As Christ himself said, “He who is near me is near the fire; he who is far from me is far from the Kingdom” (Gospel of Thomas).
Join several serious searchers across the world, to listen to Ravi as he brings the understanding of Christ’s teachings brought by the Christian sages who tried to live according to his teachings, and not on the usual mass-level teachings of the Christian organizations. Bring your own questions and insights to this interactive Webinar Series.
Date / Time: 2nd, 9th, 23rd & 30th October. 8:00 AM PDT / 4:00 PM BST / 8:30 PM IST. Duration: 2 hours.
