Spiritual scholar Ravi Ravindra to lecture on yoga at BMAC

BRATTLEBORO — Spiritual scholar and international speaker Ravi Ravindra, an authority on Jiddu Krishnamurti, George Gurdjieff, and the world's mystical traditions, is speaking on “The Heart and Purpose of Yoga: Toward a Deeper Practice” at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m.

Ravindra, an author and scholar, is sought internationally to share his views on religion, science, and spirituality. A native of India, he emigrated to Canada and is professor emeritus at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he served for many years as a professor in the disciplines of comparative religion, philosophy, and physics.

Moreover, he was a member of the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, a fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla, and was founding director of the Threshold Award for Integrative Knowledge.

Ravindra was invited by the European Yoga Union to be the chief guest at their 40th anniversary in August 2013 in Zinal, Switzerland. He has been a member of the Board of Judges for the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.

Ravindra's spiritual search has led him to a deep immersion in the mystical teachings of the Indian and Christian classical traditions.
