Free Lecture Series, Wisdom in Action, to be Presented at Rutgers presented by Philosopher Sunanda Leelaram

Sep 10, 2019 12:19PM ● By Kristy Mayer

Experience a fascinating three-day lecture series on the theme of ancient wisdom and its role in everyday life from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on September 27 through 29, at Rutgers University. 

Facilitated by Sunanda Leelaram, affectionately known as Sunandaji, an eminent philosopher from India and the daughter-disciple of world-renowned guru and author Swami Parthasarathy, the weekend will concentrate on Wisdom in Action. Participants will learn how to make life more dynamic, focused and productive, while remaining mentally peaceful and stress-free. This knowledge is derived from the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta, which is a combination of the words veda (wisdom) and anta (ultimate). 

In a style that has been described as profound, yet practical and pleasing, Sunandaji will teach the fourth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Vedanta text that systematically explains the wisdom underlying right action that leads to happiness, prosperity and ultimate fulfillment of life’s purpose. 

Sunandaji has been studying and researching Vedanta for almost four decades. She has addressed diverse audiences across four continents. Her presentation of ancient wisdom in contemporary thought has received widespread coverage in television, radio and print media. She serves as senior trustee of the Vedanta Cultural Foundation, a charitable trust dedicated to the study, research and propagation of Vedanta philosophy worldwide.
