An Evening with Swami Radha Bharati and Michael Smith
Spiritually Inspiring Stories from the Himalayan Tradition
Favorites from Swami Veda, Swami Radha and Michael Smith”.
“The shortest distance between a human being and the Truth is a story.”
(Father Anthony de Mello)
One of the most instructive and powerful ways that wisdom is communicated is through stories. Think of the folk tales, fairy tales, and fables we heard as children — our cultural heritage — that have become part of personal fund of knowledge. Think of the aphorisms and metaphors that are part and parcel of our day-to-day communication with others. Think of Jesus’ parables in the Bible.
Swami Rama and Swami Veda told hundreds of teaching stories that were passed on to them from their parents and their teachers, the ancient texts, and the Indian folk lore of the Puranas, the Mahabharata — the Dhamapada and the Jataka Tales.
Please join us this Thursday as Swami Radha and Michael review some of these stories and tell their favorites.
