University of the Third Age Course: Readings

The readings for Part 1 of the course on Indian and Asian Philosophies and Religions are from Lo Guest's books 'A Layman's Introduction to Asian Philosophies and Religions' Volumes 1 and 2. These books are not currently available online, but can be obtained in print from Tony Downey, the convenor of the U3A courses.

The following readings are for Part 2 of the Course on 'Basic Concepts of the Ancient Wisdom':


There’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st
But in his motion like an angel sings,
Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins;
Such harmony is in immortal souls;
But, whilst this muddy vesture of decay
Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.
— Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice V, i
