Mr. MacLaren’s Conversations

From 1965 till his death in 1994, Leon MacLaren had regular meetings with Sri Shantanada Saraswati. These meetings covered a huge field of philosophical topics and form the foundations and chart the path for the School of Philosophy.

In these seven weeks the group will study what was discussed in 1978 and how it deepens self-knowledge in 2016 and beyond.
