Dates: February 23-25, 2018

“In this procession of life which is very much crowded, how an individual can go ahead peacefully without any stress? This is the point. This is the question before everyone today. Are we going to live the way we live, all the time tossed by the external conditions, or is there any purpose of life?”

“All the problems that have been created by us reside within us first.”

“Stress is that something that grows in our mind, in human mind. It doesn’t come through physical strain.”

 Quotations by Swami Rama

This weekend program is an opportunity to explore the rich and profound philosophy of living and being as explained by Swami Rama.
