Retreat program - "Uddharedatmanatmanam"
A growing need among professionals now is to balance the demands of their work-life with personal wellbeing.
Indeed, their response to their families and the society at large depends on their success in achieving such balance.
An early realization of this truth is crucial for a life that harnesses the value of being Indian
In order to address this all important issue, this retreat is planned with the theme
"Uddharedatmanatmanam” a line from the Gita. The Amrita Bindu Upanishad says
–Mana eva Manushyanam Karanam Bandhamokshayoh. Vedanta Bharati is organizing this Adhyatma Chintana Program primarily for professionals. Discussions are to be held based on the import of Upanishads, Medical science, and Modern science about the nature of Mind, its characteristics, and methods of its control. Pujya Shri Shri Shankarabharati Mahaswamiji would be gracing us with the Adhyatmic knowledge from Upanishads, while accomplished Doctors would present us the benefits of including Adhyatma in our professional lives.
A unique feature of this retreat is that it is for different focus groups of specific professions. Doctors, Chartered Accountants, Advocates, Academicians, Software Engineers etc., all with specific concerns defined by their work. Thought processes, concepts of everyday life etc. appear to be group-wise common. Solutions offered may thus be acceptable by most.
