If you haven’t had the chance to see the latest in the Star Wars epics – The Latest Jedi…I mean, The Last Jedi – then don’t worry…this isn’t a spoiler!
Terms such as the force, the dark side, and the light side have become common utterances…and we all have some idea in our minds as to what they might mean. As well as offering its fair share of impressive special effects, this latest episode of Star Wars also touches on a timeless challenge – Am I a Sith Lord?! But even more timeless – Who am I, really? This may seem a trivial question, but as Star Wars reveals to us time and time again, we seem to struggle with internal conflicts…some sort of ‘intra’-personal struggle between our very own ‘light’ and ‘dark’ sides. But which is the real me in all this?
This week at Krishna West London we will preview some proposals from the Bhagavad Gita in order to see if we can come closer to answering this important question. Being a book of wisdom and practicality, it makes many bold and intriguing claims…here is one such:
BG 2.70 – “A person who is not disturbed by the incessant ﬂow of desires – that enter like rivers into the ocean, which is ever being ﬁlled but is always still – can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to satisfy such desires.”
So then, is there something in us that is beyond the duality of good and evil? If so, what is it, and what could its nature be? Well then…don’t just sit there…come join us as we embark on this adventure to dig deeper into the nature of reality!
Venue details below.
See you there,
Krishna West London team
PS. On the menu this week will be Mexican-style loveliness (vegan and GF as always). Thanks Reshma!
