This one hour webinar is scheduled for 6.30pm-7.30pm

The Royal College of Pathologists are delighted to announce that bookings are now open for the online event being held to mark Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights as part of our programme of awareness events to make our diversity visible. “Diwali or Deepawali” is the festival of lights and a celebration of “the awakening and awareness of the inner Light.” Diwali celebrates the victory of good over evil with higher knowledge dissipating ignorance and hope prevailing over despair.

Brahmacharini Shripriya Chaitanya, resident teacher of Chinmaya Mission in the UK will share the message of “self-unfoldment” through Advaita Vedanta (non-dualistic school of Hindu philosophy) followed by a Q&A session. This philosophy emphasizes the presence of that which is pure, infinite and eternal, beyond the physical body and the mind and provides guidance on achieving lasting peace and happiness and through daily activities, faith or realisation of the inner self.



  • Brahmacharini Shripriya Chaitanya

    Brahmacharini Shripriya Chaitanya was born in Nairobi, Kenya where she was first introduced to the tradition of Advaita Vedanta through the Chinmaya Mission. Her family emigrated to London in her childhood and she continued to attend youth classes with the organisation.

    After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Politics from the University of York, she took part in a one-year community service-oriented program for youth offered by Chinmaya Mission in India and spent time volunteering at educational institutions in Chennai.

    Inspired by this experience and previous exposure to scriptural study, she joined a two-year residential Vedanta course at the Sandeepany Sadhanalaya ashram in Mumbai and was initiated into the monastic order in September 2016.

    She is the resident teacher of Chinmaya Mission in the UK and shares the message of Advaita Vedanta through.
