Ayurveda And Sprituality
February 3, 2015
Hosted by Ann Holaday
Spirituality is rarely understood and should not be confused with religion even though there is an element of spirituality in all religions. Thousands of years ago philosophy blossomed in India when sages explored and understood the wonders of the Universe and the role of man on earth. They listened to the sounds of the Universe, interpreted them and taught the people by telling stories they could understand. In the first program the Vedic theory of creation was discussed in which Purusha was said to be the source of consciousness. Spirituality is very personal because we all have a spiritual nature which has an inherent desire to connect to this consciousness. It is our sense of self or identification (EGO) when directed inward, that allows us to make this connection. However, in the material world the ego is mostly directed outward by pleasures and desires, and prevents us from achieving spiritual awareness. Dr. Ravindranath, a Vedic scholar, will share his knowledge in this show.
