HAT MONTHY MEETING! Sat Nov 10, 1:30-3:00 PM

DATE: Saturday, November 10, 2012
LOCATION:  OISE, 252 Bloor Street West

TIME:  1:30 – 3:00 pm, Room 5-230
Speaker: Swami Manavatavadi

Swami Manavatavadi is an international Rationalist who will give an illustrated presentation on his work in India teaching children about rationalism.

Swami Manavatavadi visited Toronto in the spring of 1998 and gave a fascinating look at a Humanist movement in an Indian cultural context. He is looking forward to renewing acquaintances and meeting more recent members of HAT.

Swami Manavatavadi is leader of the International School of Humanitarian Thoughts and Practice in Kurukshetra, India. As a youth, after a long period of travel and searching, he arrived at a confirmed enlightenment that a supernatural being is a mere human concept,  either to discipline folks by induction of fear or a tactful weapon created by cunning people to fool the masses.

  1. Swamiji's talk will coincidentally fall on the first declared "Malala Day" which brings attention to the plight of lack of educational facilities for children, particularly girls in developing countries.
