Finding God without Faith a series of lectures by Swami Tadatmananda

Talk 3: Vision of the Vedic Sages – There is not one God; there is only God.

Talk 4: God, World and You – Discovering the reality underlying all that exists.

Talk 5: Destiny and Grace – Does prayer work? If so, how? Does God control our destiny

Talk 6: Symbolism in Worship – Are rituals meaningful? If God is one, why worship many forms?

Talk 8: Religion and Spirituality – The future of religion in a rational, scientific post-modern world.
