Pythagoras was the first person to describe himself as a philosopher. When he attended the Olympic Games, a multitude of people addressed him by the name “wise man”, (Sophist). Leon, Prince of Phlius who was present at the time asked Pythagoras what was his art. “I have no art”, Pythagoras replied, “I am a philosopher” (a lover of wisdom). As the word was original
“Life O Prince may be likened to these games, for in a crowd assembled at this great public advent, some are attracted to it by the acquisition of gain, others by the hope of fame and glory. But the best class come to observe all that happens. Thus in Life some are influenced by the love of riches, others by the mad fever for power and domination. The third class gives himself up to the contemplation of the most beautiful things,. In the true sense this man is the Philosopher.

We also study ways to improve our work in Meditation, to expand our thinking beyond material limitations and to use meditation as a tool to reach out for further wisdom and truth. Inspiration:
