RADHANATH SWAMI - "Engineering a Better World"

Synopsis :  In this world of massive engineering advancements and the resulting exploits of  humankind, there is a greater call to ‘inner engineer’ our lives. It is important that our education is based on values so that we can do good in the world, using our talents, knowledge, power and wealth for ‘enlightenment and healing’ instead of 'destruction and distraction’. Join us for an insightful talk with HH Radhanath Swami and be inspired to live with integrity, and spiritual values as the foundation for 'Engineering a Better World'. 

Bhakti Yoga Club at Stanford in collaboration with Pacific Learning Alliance, is delighted to announce the visit of RADHANATH SWAMI to Stanford. Author of famous book, "The Journey Home : Autobiography of an American Swami", today Radhanath Swami travels regularly throughout India, Europe and North America, sharing the teachings of Bhakti-yoga. He resides much of the year at the Radha Gopinath Ashram in Chowpatty, Mumbai. For the past twenty-five years he has guided the community’s development and has directed a number of acclaimed social action projects including Midday Meals, which daily serves more than 260,000 plates of sanctified vegetarian food to the children of the slums of Mumbai. He has also worked to establish missionary hospitals and eye camps, eco-friendly farms, schools and ashrams, an orphanage, and a number of emergency relief programs throughout India.
