Bringing Vedic Wisdom to the World
December 13, 2013
Presenter Spotlight: Jeffrey Armstrong
Please share what you do in 10-15 words:
I teach the meanings, methods and meditations of the Vedic library of wisdom around the world in clear English.
Why do you do what you do?
There is nothing else one can do on this planet that interests me.
What are you currently fascinated by in your work?
The secret of inspiring all human beings to co-operate with Nature and each other.
How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers?
I was born this lifetime to discover why we are here. Many teachers have helped but the most important of them have been from India.
What book(s) are you currently reading?
I read the Vedas every day along with Ayurveda, Jyotish, Nirukta (Etymology) and contemporary literature related to the blending of technology with transcendental knowledge to achieve both global sustainability and personal liberation.
Why do you teach here?
I am always impressed by the dedication, co-operation, focus and deep commitment to daily practice that Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda have inspired in their disciples and their broad-minded and universal spirit of interest in all traditions dedicated to universal truth.
