5-week Residential Programme on Experiential Vedanta
under the guidance of
Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha
In life, we face a number of situations, crossroads & challenges. Often, there are occasions when we feel - “there is more to life than this”. In trying to solve them, we look all around us. But the solution eludes us.
The Spiritual path reveals to us the immense inner potential and possibilities, which make life fulfilling.
Poojya Swamiji says: “Scriptures are not a means for scholarly study and mastery. Mastery over these scriptures is not the focus in spirituality. They are merely tools, guiding the seeker in the path of mind expansion and fulfillment. True joy and fulfillment come from living the knowledge contained in the scriptures and not by mere scholarliness.”
