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:

Pure Love and Mindfulness and one of either

green  Harmony

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.

    THE CIRCLE OF NINE POINTS - The circle of nine points is sometimes referred to as the enneagram. Mr. Leon MacLaren, the founder of the School, was introduced to the enneagram as it was expounded by Gurdjieff and Ouspensky. Later on, when he met Sri Shantananda Sarasvati, he referred to the Advaita system of the nine elements by which creation is both brought into existence and dissolved.

green  Advaita Philosophy

Advaita philosophy is central to the teachings subscribed to by the School. Ādi Śaṅkara is the central figure in the development of this philosophy. Just as in the West many people would not have studied Socrates and Plato, the same would apply in India in relation to Śaṅkara. Total freedom is the aim of the Advaita philosophy. This was Ādi Śaṅkarā’s wish for everyone and his life’s work was to make this as available as possible to the world.
