To Be or Not To Be

Could Hamlet's famous soliloquy be asking us whether we want to surrender our ordinary, everyday life and thereby Be our true Self? The philosophy of Advaita says that we are already our true Self, just that it appears to be covered over by, as Shakespeare puts it, 'the pale cast of thought'.

In this talk Stephen Silver will use Hamlet's words as a vehicle to pursue the path of self-enquiry and Self-discovery.
