Being a Spiritual Seeker
in a Material World

Monthly Meetings 2024 with Ravi Ravindra

A searcher hankers for the Real.  Even though the spiritual journey of each person is unique, still a searcher is greatly helped by the wisdom of luminous teachers and the company and encouragement of fellow searchers.

-Ravi Ravindra

Course Details

We all would have probably wondered the following questions at some time in our life:

Is this Material World with all its technological advancements, emotional attractions, with promises and uncertainties about the future, a nurturing place for a spiritual seeker? Or are only mountains, solitude and quiet
a necessity for a serious pursuit?

Is it a place of continuous struggle for life, health, career, relationships, family, financial security and ageing related issues? Do these consume our total time and attention, leaving us no time for something subtler?

Is it at all possible that this material world, with all its frailties, seemingly run by the dualities of reward and punishment, win and loss, comfort and suffering, can actually be a mutually nurturing environment for our spiritual  journey? 

Join Prof Ravi Ravindra for two free zoom sessions as he prepares us for an engaging practical expedition starting in Jan 2024. During these two sessions, Ravi will initially speak about his own personal impressions on the above questions. Bring your questions too on these topics that are so relevant for all of us as we meander life amidst wars, natural and man made calamities and the advent of AI threatening to challenge the very purpose of human existence and question our own intelligence that we have been so proud of, thus far.

Free Introductory Sessions:  

 Dates: Sundays 17th Dec 2023 and Jan 07th 2024

 Time: 9:00 PM IST 7:30 AMPST  |  10:30 AM EST  |  11:30 AM AST

Duration: 1 hour

Ravindra’s work is significant for those who wish to explore the deeper aspects of existence. His approach is especially appealing to individuals who appreciate both empirical evidence and inner experiential knowledge.

He started by teaching physics in Canada. Midway in his career, he was convinced that science did not have all the answers to deeper questions and thus shifted to studying comparative religion and philosophy to gain a deeper understanding of these existential questions. Having learnt the scientific approach, he put the ideas in the scriptures to test by verifying them in his own experience.  He still considers himself a fellow seeker in the midst of his students, both new and old, whom he has been guiding for over 4 decades.

During  the last two years, Ravi Ravindra has been meeting with a group of seekers from across the globe, guiding them on several aspects of inner search in a global culture. These have been conducted over Zoom with the possibility every month to ask him questions, raise concerns and share insights. All the meetings are recorded and made available to the participants so they can review the exploration and the answers to specific questions.
