In this workshop, Menas C. Kafatos and Debashish Banerji explore the fundamental and practical aspects of two great world systems, those of Kashmir Shaivism and Sri Aurobindo. Both these monistic systems provide a spiritual cosmology and emphasize practical aspects of human transformation. Both also hold that the human being carries within itself the structures and instruments of consciousness that can enable identification with the transcendental and transformation at the mental, emotional, volitional, and physical levels.
