Three new words I’m thinking about:
I learned these words from Professor Rambachan
YouTube talk on the poem the Nirvana Shaktam
. He says that according to the Upanishad knowledge is a transformative discipline. The Brhadaranyaka Upanisad uses these words to describe the 3 dimension of learning.
Shravana : Attentive listening with an open mind, being receptive to understand, not immediately dismissing.
Manana: Reflection with the use of reason. The processes of churning and questioning the information.
Nididhyasana: Disapline of seeking to integrate and assimilate the information into my self understanding - atma-jnana.
Sunday Evening at 6:15 we are going to watch the first lecture together on zoom. Join us for a watch party and chat. -Sarah
