Conversations with Sri Santananda Saraswati
Key to the practice of philosophy in the School has been the conversations between the School leader and the Śankarārcaya, Śrī Śantānanda Sarasvatī, which started in 1965 and have continued, now with their successors, up to the current day.
We will work our way through these conversations in chronological order. As with all our courses, the emphasis will be on discovering for ourselves, in practice, the import of his words in our daily life.
The course this term will be held on-line using Zoom. This software is simple to use and details of how to join the “classroom” can be sent to you when you register.

How it works
A tutor presents material, and leads a discussion based on what arises. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
Frequently asked questions about our courses
The course is practical in the sense that it takes philosophical ideas and shows how they can be of direct use in our everyday lives. The intention is to stimulate enquiry and through this expand the way we look at the world and ourselves.
