This is a very ancient and highly-celebrated text that precedes the Gita by centuries. Its mantras have been quoted by the Gita and by other Upanishads. There are three chapters with two sections in each. There are a total 
of sixty-five mantras. All sixty five mantras 
will be posted on the Vedanta Circle website 
VEDANTACIRCLE.COM before we start.
We will read and discuss about five mantras every time we meet in Vedanta Circle.
No previous formal training in Sanskrit or Vedic literature is necessary. The text is not a religious text but a spiritual one that will appeal to anyone who is looking for inner peace and happiness.
  You are invited to join in. 
Please contact Joy at joyrubs@gmail.com
or contact Dr. Jiten Ruparel at ruparel.jiten@gmail.com if you are interested 
in joining one or more of these discussions or have any questions.

Ayurvedic practice (an ancient approach from India to keep the body/mind healthy) uses spices and herbs as medicine. In fact, all food is seen as medicine in Ayurveda.  If used properly we can enhance the way we live. Spices and herbs have been used to make beverages that help with digestive issues, headaches, cold and fever, detox and more. 
This interactive workshop will show you which spices make the best 'teas'  to see you through the seasons, stressful situations and just staying in the moment with the wonderful aromas that spices invoke. 
You will take home some recipes, tea balls and some mixtures of Ayurvedic teas that are sure 
to keep you happy and healthy in these cold winter months. 
Please contact Joy at joyrubs@gmail.com if you are interested in attending. 
We will be sampling all the teas we discuss!
