Local retreats in Upstate NY

Saturday September 2 - Monday September 4, 2017 (Labor Day weekend)

The ancient philosophy of Vedanta contains the eternal principles of living. Without this technique one loses clarity of thought and action. Life becomes monotonous, replete with worries and anxieties in both work and relationships. One loses direction and purpose in life.

Mirroring the Vedanta academy schedule in India, the program is designed for you to delve deeper into both the practical and spiritual aspects of life and includes lectures, discussions, Q and A, select philosophical movies and literature pieces, as well as yoga, sport and devotional singing.

If you have children in the age group 9 to 15, there will be a specially designed concurrent module by Ritikaji, senior disciple of Swami Parthasarathy designed to instill higher values of life in the youth. Young adults 16 and over can join the main adult session.

Perfect Human Being

Thursday September 28 - Sunday October 1, 2017

Living is an art, skill, technique that needs to be learnt and practised. The Bhagavad Gita presents the eternal principles of life and living which transcend race or religion. The principles equip one with a strong intellect to meet the challenges of the world and achieve success and peace in all aspects of one’s life – official, social and domestic. Above all they usher one towards the ultimate perfection, the goal of spiritual Enlightenment.

The Law of Karma

Saturday September 30, 2017

The entire universe is governed by the law of karma: cause and effect. Every cause has an effect and every effect a cause. There is no such thing as luck or accident. No extraneous power shaping your life. You are the architect of your fortune, you are the architect of your misfortune. You reap what you sow. Your past actions determine your present destiny. And your future is your past modified by the present. Selfish action leads to suffering and sorrow while unselfish action engenders peace and prosperity.
