Join Nathan Katz, leading scholar of India’s Jewish communities, and relax and unwind with his inspiring stories about four Indian mystics. You will hear about his series of meetings with the Dalai Lama, his dialogue about life and death with a Jain nun, and a university seminar he attended, given by an Advaita philosopher. You will also study a Persian mystical poem by a Jewish Mughal courtier — and draw parallels between the powerful messages within each tale.
Listen, savor, and be inspired on your own spiritual journey.
Offered as 3 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change)
