The Vedic Experience | A Mini-Course with Sadanand Mailliard

Most people consider the Vedas as ancient knowledge, which in a major respect they are. However, the purpose of our dialogues on “The Vedic Experience” is to understand how important and relevant the Vedas can be in supporting our practice on the human journey in today’s context. We draw examples from Raimundo Panikkar’s commentary on the Vedas, to bring us closer to experiencing the depth and brilliance of Vedic thinking as it applies to current times, and open up to a new awareness of the value they hold. While the language and social context has changed since the Vedas were written, the principles encoded in these sacred texts are as relevant and, if anything, more urgently needed than ever to the sustainability of the human experiment.
