Vanity Karma: By Hh Jayadvaita Swami says
ECCLESIASTES, THE BHAGAVAD-GITA AND THE MEANING OF LIFE

As a young Jewish American teenager, HH Jayadvaita Swami was introduced to the book of Ecclesiastes in the Hebrew scriptures and was intrigued by its basic question regarding the meaning of human life. At age 19 he discovered the teachings of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita and felt that the Hindu teachings raised many of the same questions as Ecclesiastes. Since the 1960s, he has become a Hindu monk who continues to pursue the basic questions regarding human life and has travelled to numerous countries to teach and inspire people in ways of spirituality.

He has published over 40 books in many different languages and has engaged with intercultural and interfaith scholars all over the world.

He will be in Houston on February 18 to discuss his latest book, Vanity Karma: Ecclesiastes, the Bhagavad-Gita and the Meaning of Life, a book with a transcultural perspective on basic human questions.

The event is a collaborative one by the Hare Krishna community and Grace Episcopal Church. Dr. Helen Rose Ebaugh, Professor of World Religions, University of Houston and a member of Grace Church will interview the Swami regarding his book at the Hare Krishna Temple and Cultural Center, 1320 W. 34th. St., Houston, TX. 77018 after which questions will be welcomed from the audience.

The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a tour of the temple and cultural center.
From 6:30-7:30 the book discussion will be held in the temple, followed by a short dance performance “Vanity Karma” by Swathi Murali. This hour will provide an opportunity for Christians, Jews and members of all faith traditions to come together to learn more about the sacred scriptures of different religious traditions and to dialog about common themes.

A vegetarian dinner will be served at 7:30.
