Flowing With the World: The Kural on Earth and Ethics

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Description

In South India, the Kural is revered as a guide to practicing goodness and good sense in daily life. Yet this masterpiece of world literature, on par with the Tao Te Ching and the poetry of Rumi, has long lacked translations that make its guidance available in English. 

Translator and poet Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma shares his journey with translating this seminal work and explores the astonishing relevance of the Kural today by delving into what it has to say about ecology and ethics. He hopes you’ll come away feeling inspired, renewed and reminded of truths that can help us to navigate times of great change with wisdom and grace.
