eddie stern on karma, dharma, and social action

this back-to-school feeling has got us thinking about eddie stern’s spring 2017 lecture on karma, dharma, and social action (and monads, dyads, triads, and tetrads!).

“Remember: Keep your spiritual goals in your mind and heart; offer all actions to the Lord, or the unknown; don’t be concerned about gaining a particular result from your actions; be free from possessiveness; be calm.”

thank you, eddie, for preparing such a brilliant and mind-bending presentation for us. we can’t wait to have you back!

“[The] law of karma is based on the principle of cause and effect. Causes, by definition, are things which produce effects, and effects, by definition, are things coming from causes.

Scholar Edwin Bryant returns to the Shala on Friday, October 20.

thank you, tim miller!
