HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH


COME MEET OUR VISITING SWAMIS THIS MONTH ...

 

We are delighted to be welcoming two swamis this month.

Swami Anubhavananda, the Happy Swami, returns for a session on Saturday evening May 16th, 7pm. He has delighted us on previous occasions with his humorous teachings on vedanta and happiness.

Swami Anubhavananda

Swami Anubhavananda

truly is the Experience of Happiness - happiness which spreads like a divine breeze among all who have come in contact with him.

Swami Anubhavananda's personality reflects both the simple being and the erudite scholar. He is suave and witty and equally at home with people of all ages. He communicates the most difficult of philosophy in a simple and direct manner. His words directly address the heart and breathe into us a new life of joy.
