      Description:

      Wonder how to make a mark while living in a world of uncontrolled senses ? Join us this summer as Devamrita Swami, a Yale graduate, author and a Monk of over 40 years shares his unique expertise and technique on how to ‘discover ourselves’. He speaks every year to students at prestigious universities around the globe and equips them with tools to better navigate the loops and hoops of life.

      Who am I and what do I want to do with my life ? Why do I have to make choices and how do I make them? Important questions but rarely answered.
      Life is all about what I want and what feels right to me. Sounds like a familiar phrase to many of us. Thinking like this world quickly transforms into a playground for my senses and the best way to enjoy this life is to do what it takes to satisfy our senses. If this is true, why then is the world full of so much stress and anxiety ? Hear from Devamrita Swami as he shares his experience and helps us see the real ‘I’ behind the ‘shadow self’ we live with.

      So many advertisements forcing images of who we would want to be, so many books binding us with conformity – we don`t have much of chance for findng our true needs or even who we are and what would truly satisfy us. Expertise is needed to peek behind the shadow that envelops our true identity. Living in a world of permanent stress, an intelligent person seeks a permanent solution.

      The event will also include a delicious, freshly prepared vegetarian dinner and beautiful meditation marking the beginning and end of the program.

      About the speaker:

      Devamrita Swami is a monk in the renounced order of life with profound spiritual practices that go back 40 years. In 1972, Devamrita Swami graduated from Yale University. At this time he came in contact with the ancient teachings of the east. He discovered that the knowledge presented in these books was the beginning of his real education. His attraction to this transcendental information was immediate and the effect profound. Ever since Devamrita Swami travels around the world constantly to fulfill invitations by prestigious universities like Columbia University, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Cardiff University, University of Toronto, Rotman School of Business, York, Indian Institute of Technology and many other Universities around the world.
