About This Event

The future of humanity depends on the quality of being of the human beings.
According to all the spiritual teachings there are two currents of energy in each
human being, one coming from the spiritual side and the other from the material
side. The former is referred to as ‘soul’ or ‘spirit’ and the latter as the ‘body’
including the usual mind. The purpose of the body is to assist the evolution of the
soul, ultimately back to the Source, labeled God or Brahman or the Absolute.
However, in general the material side completely takes over and is wholly driven
by fear or self-centred desires. The call to all the searchers is to enhance the
quality of our being—leading to more compassion and love, more sense of unity
and service; more and more freedom from me-my-mine.
