This programme, conducted by Swami Sri Krishnananda ji, was held for three days from 4-6 September, 2019. As many as 34 devotees from HP, Delhi, Maharashtra, UP, Rajasthan, and WB attended the programme.

The programme covered mainly three topics namely Ego, Surrender and Grace.  While explaining these issues, the focus was, how these matter in the daily life of an individual and thus in his or her spiritual sadhna.

The concept of Maya and thus Ego as God’s force in creation was explained on the first day. Presentation helped to grasp a good understanding on Ego, its necessity in creation and in one’s life and at the same time, its play in the illusory creation. Emphasis was laid on the way how to rise above it rather than fight with Maya.

On the second day, while covering the topic of Surrender, the focus was on what to surrender, why to surrender, how to surrender etc. The story of Bhagwad Gita was used as a metaphor in highlighting the various aspects of the topics covered.

As usual, regular energization exercises, morning and evening meditation were held on all the days.

  9. The programme was very well organized. Swami ji talked about Ego. He told that “When ego gets in, God steps out and when ego gets out God steps in”. He also delivered a talk on Surrender. Until we surrender to God, we cannot achieve our spiritual goal in life. Even if we surrender and if the God’s grace is not there, we cannot be successful. Grace of God and Guru ji is very important and that is possible only when we have perfect devotion towards them…. The programme was very inspiring and Bhajans were very enjoyable…….S.C. Gupta, Kullu, HP
