INTRODUCTION

Since its publication in 1888, The Secret Doctrine has been a source of inspiration for generations of Theosophists worldwide. However, this work is often seen as little more than a theoretical collection of metaphysical and abstract teachings on the origin of the Universe and humanity. In this session of The School of the Wisdom, Pablo and Michele will offer a program highlighting the transformative power that The Secret Doctrine can have in our spiritual journey. They will present the main teachings found in the volume on Cosmogenesis, exploring how to approach this study as a form of Jñana Yoga, the path of wisdom. The program includes sessions of meditation and meditative inquiry to help individuals gain personal insights and assimilate the profound wisdom contained within the text. In addition, they will share practical exercises that participants can apply in their daily lives to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. There can be no Wisdom without an ever-increasing sense of Wonder. Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature.

The SOW was inaugurated in 1949 by C. Jinarajadasa, the fourth International President of the TS, to revive the 1922 Adyar School initiated by Annie Besant. This school was named Brahmavidyā Āśrama, which has almost the same meaning as the School of the Wisdom.

APPLYING TO THE SCHOOL

The SOW is meant for members of the Theosophical Society to deepen their understanding in theosophy, making it a living force in daily life. Students may apply for all or some of the School of the Wisdom sessions in one form and are expected to attend all the classes in the session chosen.

SOBRE LA ESCUELA DE LA SABIDURÍA

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

La Escuela de la Sabiduría tiene como objetivo llevar a cada estudiante a examinar la vida "desde el centro", que es la conciencia intuitiva.  No puede haber Sabiduría sin un creciente sentido de Maravilla. Esencial en el progreso hacia la Sabiduría, es una creciente intimidad con todos los aspectos de la Naturaleza.

La SOW fue inaugurada en 1949 por C. Jinarajadasa, el cuarto presidente internacional de la ST, para revivir la Escuela Adyar de 1926 iniciada por Annie Besant. Esta escuela se llamó Brahmavidyā Āśrama, que tiene casi el mismo significado que la Escuela de la Sabiduría.

APLICACIÓN A LA ESCUELA
