December 08 Class:  What we did:

GEDA Theory:
Passion (GEDA – Greed, Ego, Deceit, Anger) is an integral part of human nature.   The purpose of this life is to manage GEDA and if we can manage this well, our happiness and the happiness of people around us significantly increases.  Such infectious happiness multiplier increases our planetary happiness.   The question is what can help us manage our GEDA.  Our knowledge, experience, and our ability to keep our mind open (Anekantvad) allows us to better manage GEDA.  Jainism is managing GEDA.
