The Service of Meditation - Know Thyself

Public Talk, 7.30 - 8.30 pm, 20 October 2021.

Featured Speaker:Jean Carroll
Venue:Brisbane Lodge

HAPPINESS EQUALS 'KNOW THYSELF'

This talk will centre on the transformative power of daily meditation.  How this discipline seemingly flows into human transformation and harmonious living with the prospect of Knowing Thyself and benefiting others i.e., real service.  We will look into three different approaches, specifically the Theosophical approach, Raja yoga meditation & the more radical method of Krishnamurti.
