HR: Second assignment

THE TEXTS HAVE ARRIVED! If you still need a copy of the text, you can call Karen at 599-0827 to arrange a pick-up. 

To prepare for our class on April 9th:

  • Read Sutra 5 from The Splendor of Recognition 
  • Experiment with the practice that Swami-ji describes on the bottom of page 123: This is a temporary configuration of Consciousness. You may want to journal about your experience with this practice. 
  • NEW ASSIGNMENT: Please watch this video of a TED talk that perfectly expresses the teachings of The Heart of Recognition.

Optional readings:

  • If you like, you can also read sutras 2, 3, 4, and/or 9.
  • In the mid-20th century, the British writer Owen Barfield wrote about human perception in a way that is very similar to the teachings in the Heart of Recognition. For a peek at a contemporary description of this ancient teaching, read this excerpt from Saving the Appearances.
