SAPIENS & STHITAPRAJNA
a Comparative Exploration of Seneca’s Stoicism and the Bhagavad-Gita
a wisdom talk by
Ashwini Mokashi, PhD
SP Pune University,
Princeton Research Forum
Wednesday, June 24 | 6pm EDT
to join at the time of the event.
What makes one a wise person? How should one act in the world to be happy? What is a life well-lived? These central questions drive both the Stoic master Seneca and the sacred Hindu text Bhagavad-gita. Although the Gita and Seneca’s writings are centuries, continents, and cultures apart, might they share a common philosophical core?
Philosophy scholar and researcher, Dr. Ashwini Mokashi draws on her book on this subject to offer a thoughtful comparison between these two streams of philosophy, focusing in on Stocism’s ideal of the sapien and the Gita’s archetype of the sthitaprajna.
All are welcome.
