We hope you can join us for this Vedanta classic, Katha Upanishad. This ancient writing is a few centuries older than the Bhagavad Gita. The Gita has taken several important metaphors such as the tree and the chariot from Katha and it quotes many verses from Katha too. This is a very ancient, poetic and inspiring text. 

The Katha Upanishad is one of the most popular Vedanta texts and has been translated into many languages. It is easy to understand why. The story of a fearless and spiritually evolved pre-teenager given by his father to the Lord of Death is full of drama. The ensuing dialog is for the ages.

If you have questions you may contact Dr. Jiten Ruparel at ruparel.jiten@gmail.com or 614.798.0095 or Joy Lawrence at joyrubs@gmail.com or 614.406.5613.

      upcoming events & ongoing classes

A casual book group designed to prepare us for the holiday season and beyond. This time of year can challenge us with family, friends, advertising and hardcore traditions that clash with our values and beliefs as vegans. Clare Mann; vegan psychologist, author, and existential psychotherapist explains in her book the angst of experiencing Vystopia ("the normal response any feeling human being should have after discovering the nature and extent of society's systematised animal abuse.").

Join fellow vegans as we look for answers and solutions for better communication with non-vegans as we continue our quest for a non-violent, healthier world.

For more information or to purchase the book, Vystopia ~ https://smile.amazon.com/Vystopia-Anguish-Being-Vegan-Non-Vegan/dp/0987346199/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537845934&sr=8-1&keywords=vystopia

Group will be from 7-8:30pm in Pure Joy Studio in Westerville. There will be a limit of 12 people due to space.

I will provide some vegan snacks hot tea and water.
