Among the most memorable occasions at Temenos was the visit in 1993 by the Indian philosopher Dr Ramchandra Gandhi, to give six lectures and a series of seminars on the Mandukya Upanishad. Among the subjects were his teacher Ramana Maharshi and his grandfather Mahatma Gandhi.
Dr Ramchandra Gandhi (1937-2007) was a philosopher, author, and teacher. He studied at Oxford and taught in India and the USA. One of the original Fellows of the Temenos Academy, he was a deeply thoughtful man, with an imaginative mind, a charming sense of humour, and a humble bearing.
