Finding our Compass through the four Purusharthas, or Aims of Human Life according to Hindu Philosophy




Sunday, March 14, 2021, 10 – 12 Puerto Vallarta time

The Purusharthas originate in Vedic texts and are key teachings within the great epics of the Ramayana and Mahabharata. They can be  translated in Sanskrit as the “goals of human existence” or “the soul’s purpose.”

It feels like now more than ever we are examining our soul’s purpose, seeking meaning in our lives, and experiencing a change in the way we think and live based on the challenges and uncertainty of the past year and the foreseeable future. The purusharthas can be a powerful matrix to use as we sort out what is important.

According to these precepts, we have four primary aims in our life: purpose, the means to carry out our purpose, the experience of beauty, and individual (and collective) liberation.

Have you been feeling unmoored or without direction? Have you been having the experience of lots of time but very little inspiration? Have you been considering how you live and what’s important and feeling a shift in your center?

Join me for this two hour workshop where we will learn about these four aims, how we can connect them to our lives now, and what we might be able to do to set ourselves on a more steady course. We will spend time talking, in silent contemplation, journaling and creating a poster board that reflects our desires and illuminates a pathway to greater ease and freedom.
