The Choice is Always Ours

This talk by Sis. Gertrude Weerekoon takes a contemporary look at events in todayís world. Much of the violence and atrocities we see being perpetrated in many areas is due, largely, to an incorrect understanding of life or a wrong view of what's important.

This talk will question our responses, as students of the Inner Life: whether or not we realize that we are part of all that is happening on our planet; that wars & conflicts in other places do affect us.

Finally, we will explore if we should be helpful, and how ó because that is the way we can put into practice the teachings of all the Great Teachers ó to be kind, helpful and altruistic.
