Namah Te dear All,

i hope this message finds all my fellow seekers infinitely, incessantly and independently Joyous!

In our Meaningful Mornings Workshop (poster) we have explored brahmacharya. In our Hinduism 101 Class (calendar) we will explore brahmacharya. Philosophically brahmacharya is one dedicated to Infinity. Practically brahmacharya is one engaged in non-indulging.

BUT indulging is fun! But is it really? Let us see the full picture with our E-Vichara

E-Vichara (March 30, 2020) — — Investigating Indulgence

  • indulging will make you inefficient — to create pleasure requires significant resources yet the experience is frivolous
  • indulging will make you irritable — to create pleasure requires significant time yet the experience is fleeting
  • indulging will make you incompetent — to create pleasure requires significant effort yet the experience is futile
  • indulging will make you impotent — to create pleasure requires significant physicality yet the experience is tiring
  • indulging will make you insecure — to create pleasure requires significant mentality yet the experience is trying
  • indulging will make you incomplete — to create pleasure requires significant intellectuality yet the experience is trapping

Inspire-Love-Be,
