Mahabharata Exploration Online

July 14, 2020 — September 15, 2020

Mahabharata Exploration is a program designed to use the itihasa-purana as a mirror to look at one’s life. The Mahabharata, the longest epic in the world, is a timeless text and has been an integral part of the life of the people of this land for eons. It retains a timeless appeal, allure and inspiration. It is often considered the 5th Veda and has a vast repository of human contexts that offers one a possibility for a self- reflective exploration of their inner-worlds. Perhaps this is why it’s said in its praise: “Whatever is here might be found elsewhere, but whatever is not here is nowhere else.”

Join us on an exploration of stories from the Mahabharata as we use them like a mirror to look at our deepest inner realities in search for clarity and meaning. This is especially relevant given the changing and challenging external context that we find ourselves in today where the old seems to be falling away and the new is yet to come into being.

The next ONLINE exploration starts Tuesday, July 14, 2020. and meets every week Tuesday evening from 20:00hrs to 21:30 hrs IST (Indian standard time), for 10 weeks ONLINE.

We will use Zoom, a web based video conferencing platform.  Anyone from across the globe can participate, subject to the suitability of the above time. The video conferencing platform details would be shared with the participants in advance.

It was an interesting experience. A new way of looking at the mahabharata opened up for me. The intrigue factor with each passing week was quite high. Every character had something new to offer and I liked the entire journey very  much.

Helped me get a deeper understanding of my own propensities, and a sense of how I can be conscious of their influence on my actions, reactions and responses

I attended my first ME workshop 3 years ago and since then have done another ME and the MI in Feb 2019. Ever since I started there have been small shifts as well as major revelations  that have come up for me. When the lockdown started and I got the invite for the first ME online, I knew this would be a space to find an anchor for myself in this uncertain time. Every time/and every method with which I have engaged with the stories of the Mahabharata I have been able to find a great reflective space. It was great to be a part of this group.

It was  an amazing, deep, expansive exploration. It brought me in touch with a very important untouched space within  me .
