May 20, 2019, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM @ Bemis Hall
Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, May 20, at 12:30 pm when Bijoy Misra discusses “Nature and Spirituality.” Is nature spiritual? Does nature thrive on struggle for existence or provide a room for all? Are all objects equal in their existence? If an object in nature is equal to another object, then why does one survive but not the other? We examine these age-old questions from the perspective of our own life and experiences. We examine traits in our own nature and our own built-in spirituality. We look to the philosophers and the scriptures for their insight into equality. We examine whether spirituality lives in our own perception of the “other” object. The COA provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion. All ages welcome!
