Guam, 29 January 2009
Br.Shantamrita Chaitanya spoke at the University of Guam on the topic “Ancient Wisdom Applied in Today’s World.”
He said “there is a whole wisdom tradition that really exists all over the world that we should not consider irrelevant. There are many different ways of looking at ancient wisdom, spiritually, from a yogic perspective, and also in an academic perspective. In the modern world, we have become so specialized and knowledge is so compartmentalized that we often miss the big picture.”
The lecture was attended by people from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. Brahmachari Shantamrita, who is currenly looking after the Amma’s ashram in Japan, said that he hoped his lecture would inspire people to revise their outlook.
