A contemplative walk through nature and around the sacred surroundings of the Theosophical Society headquarters is a unique experience. It certainly qualifies as a "Life-changing moment." Since Blavatsky and Olcott first arrived at this location in 1882, it has had a profound impact and significance in the TS. Along with having a strong spiritual influence, the ashram also functions as a sort of "green lung" for Chennai owing to its unusual geology and topography, which is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. Welcome to the Master's Home.
 
During the walk, participants are kindly advised to wear sun protector, comfortable clothes, shoes and headwear, as well as to bring a bottle of water.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. There can be no Wisdom without an ever-increasing sense of Wonder. Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature.

The SOW was inaugurated in 1949 by C. Jinarajadasa, the fourth International President of the TS, to revive the 1922 Adyar School initiated by Annie Besant. This school was named Brahmavidyā Āśrama, which has almost the same meaning as the School of the Wisdom.

APPLYING TO THE SCHOOL

The SOW is meant for members of the Theosophical Society to deepen their understanding in theosophy, making it a living force in daily life. Students may apply for all or some of the School of the Wisdom sessions in one form and are expected to attend all the classes in the session chosen.

SOBRE LA ESCUELA DE LA SABIDURÍA

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

La Escuela de la Sabiduría tiene como objetivo llevar a cada estudiante a examinar la vida "desde el centro", que es la conciencia intuitiva.  No puede haber Sabiduría sin un creciente sentido de Maravilla. Esencial en el progreso hacia la Sabiduría, es una creciente intimidad con todos los aspectos de la Naturaleza.

La SOW fue inaugurada en 1949 por C. Jinarajadasa, el cuarto presidente internacional de la ST, para revivir la Escuela Adyar de 1926 iniciada por Annie Besant. Esta escuela se llamó Brahmavidyā Āśrama, que tiene casi el mismo significado que la Escuela de la Sabiduría.

APLICACIÓN A LA ESCUELA
