Newcastle Sai Centre - Informal (Continuing) Education 

Study Circles

We organize study circles on the third Friday of every month between 19.30-20.30hrs at the Fairways Community centre.

We have discussions, presentations (Educare), video presentation of Swami’s talks, and talks by members & speakers.

However we also encourage youth to express their views and are gradually allowing the youth to implement topics they feel would be beneficial. Even listening during these sessions will strike a chord in any devotee and can be used for further introspection and reflection.

Swami’s emphasis on study circles

What is a study circle? It is not just reading books. Study circle means taking a point and each person discussing what is the meaning of the point to them. Like a round-table conference. Each person gives their point of view, and finally values are derived from this. If there is just reading, there is doubt. But if each one gives his view, doubts will be answered. The topic is viewed; the study circle looks at different facets. It is like a diamond with its different facets, but there is one facet that is flat, the top facet, and from this all can be viewed. To discover the top facet is the task of the study circle.
