During his early teenage years, already a student at Harvard University, Emerson first began reading the great writings of
Indian philosophy: The Bhagavad Gita, The Laws of Manu, The Upanishads, The Vishnu Purana- amongst many others. Throughout his entire life he sought their company and was drawn to the knowledge of Unity. As he put it:
“In all nations there are minds which incline to dwell in the conception of the fundamental Unity. This tendency finds its highest expression in the religious writings of the East. Those writings contain little else than this idea, and they rise to pure and sublime strains in celebrating it.”
At the heart of Emerson’s Transcendental teachings is his own uniquely inspired and eloquent expression of these concepts. Join us to explore “Emerson and the Eastern Connection”. Find out why the Sage of Concord is called a Hindu Yankee
