blank Philosophy and Universal Order

There is only one activity in truth. This entire universe is this one activity, manifesting the glory and substance of the Absolute. At different times this activity may be called ‘speaking’, ‘writing’, ‘resting’, ‘going’ or ‘living’ but at all times it is manifesting the substance of the Absolute. Name and form change but the Absolute does not. The ocean and its waves are of the same substance; the waves are in motion and ever changing, but the substance, water, remains the same.

This series of courses looks a the Universal Principles, the forces that govern the creation and our how our understanding of these can help us navigate this life harmoniously.

This universal activity comes under the universal laws for this creation and under this theme of courses the School of Practical Philosophy presents the following topics:

Pre-requisite to the Philosophy and Universal Order Courses:
Meditation
Philosophy and Mindfulness and one of either
True Happiness and Mindfulness OR
Pure Love and Mindfulness and one of either
Presence of Mind OR
Freedom 
and at least 2 of the Way of Philosophy Titles


green  The Law of Three

The Five Sheaths - The law of three only applies to the creation and everything in it! Sattva, rajas and tamas form the law of three and act as the hub.... One of the laws of these qualities is that the three must always be there before anything can manifest.

While the law of three described the different qualities that any situation or thing may have according to the balance of the three Gunas , the law which describes how an event unfolds or the succession of events is called the law of seven. It is the law of harmonious action. This law describes how the most mundane of events take place as well as how the most profound activities that human beings can undertake proceed. It is closely related to the idea of harmony, not just as it appears in music but also in the idea of universal harmony and harmony between human beings. This 11 week course will study universal harmony and in particular the law of seven as the law of harmonious action.

The law of three only applies to the creation and everything in it! Sattva, rajas and tamas form the law of three and act as the hub.... One of the laws of these qualities is that the three must always be there before anything can manifest.

green  Practice, Devotion and Service

The basic discipline of the School can be described as knowledge, meditation and practice. Spiritual knowledge illuminates and shines reason upon the situation. Meditation purifies the inner being and provides energy. Practice means implementing in action that which has been illuminated, powered by the energy from meditation. The three elements are essential. Without one or more of the elements of knowledge, meditation and practice, what we hear in these groups would remain a completely abstract theoretical matter; nice ideas but of no practical benefit.
