ONLINE MEETING ON FEBRUARY 6, 2021
Title of DVD: Daily Life as Spiritual Practice
Speaker: Ravi Ravindra
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Brief Description of the DVD Presentation:
We cannot escape from daily life. And living the spiritual life is not something we do to escape from the routine and boredom of everyday life. Everyday life is also full of challenges and struggles. No matter where we go, some aspects of daily life will be with us. The speaker gives a reflective inquiry into the question of how it is possible for daily life to become an aid to the spiritual life rather than an obstacle to it. He also addresses the common failing of procrastination. Why do we so often postpone a serious attempt at living the spiritual life? We often say we will begin tomorrow, but tomorrow may not come. If not now, when? There may not be a better time than now to begin. 1997. 35 minutes.
