April Class Series in Waimea: The Five T's of Spiritual Life
Sarada Ramakrishna Vivekananda (SRV) Center in Waimea, Big Island
The human soul, called the psycho-physical being by Vedanta philosophy, must pass through trials, purification, challenges, austerities, refinement, and expansion in order to know the Atman, the True Self, and be free. The 5 "Ts" listed in this class title give us a multi-tiered template for understanding this journey that the embodied being has taken upon itself — called "life" by some, and a "return to the Source" by others. Though the sojourn seems to begin on a very flat and gross note, the inward ascension process that results over time, and with self-effort, is epic, leading human awareness to a conscious realization of all that lies within it, and beyond it.
