Each searcher periodically wonders why I have been created on this small planet earth in the vast universe and only for a few decades.  What is my responsibility during my transient existence. Much wise advice is brought by great sages. All the sages call us to be free of our usual occupation with me-my-mine and to cultivate a quality of being that will relate us more and more with the mysterious Divine forces of Truth, Love, Consciousness, Delight and sense of Unity and Service.

Each of the sages, ancient ones as well as the modern ones, express their insights and instructions uniquely and emphasize some different aspects. Our wish and effort in the context of this course in the SOW is to explore how we can apply their teachings in our contemporary context and actually try to practice them in daily life. We will take some recommendations or instructions of the great classical spiritual teachers Krishna, Buddha, Christ and Patañjali. Also,  if time permits, we will take some suggestions from the modern teachers G.I. Gurdjieff and J. Krishnamurti.
