10-20-2012 Swami Mukundananda
Chicago IL: The quest for spiritual happiness is a practical necessity, not a lofty ideal, says a Swami Mukundananda Ji who finished a one day Retreat on Saturday, October 20, 2012 – at the Holiday Inn, Rolling Meadows, IL. It was a special day Special day of spiritual rejuvenation and frolicking fun. Devotees spent quality time in the inspiring company of Swamiji, nourishing their body, mind, and soul.
The program was packed with Bhajans, Leela Descriptions, Discourses, Bhajan Competition, Meditation and on top of it Excellent presentation by Chicago Bal Mukund Center – which runs its Character Building Program for kids in ages 4-16 based on our Vedic Scriptures in Palatine, IL.
A new Back to Community program was kick started by J K Yog in Conjunction with Chicago Food Depository on Oct 20, 2012 – where J K Yog is planning to help raise meals for Chicago Community. An excellent way of giving back to Community. J K Yog has been doing back to community programs around the World for decades now.
Swami Mukundananda Ji is a spiritual leader whose lectures apply the ancient Vedas, or Hindu scriptures, to the challenges of 21st-century existence. He teaches audiences how to manage stress through yoga and meditation.
“Spirituality is not removed from our mundane practical life,” he says. “If practiced for some time on a daily basis, it helps us in doing all the other activities throughout the day as well and provides us a true Path to Happiness.
Attended by at least 150+ devotees, the retreat was a real treat for Body, Mind and Soul. Swami Mukundananda Ji looks as one might expect a holy man to look — serene countenance, flowing saffron garments, a high forehead marked with Tilak. The Tilak Mark symbolize his devotion to the Hindu deities Radha and Krishna, he says. But he also has an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management, India’s preeminent business school. He was a mechanical engineer before he renounced his position, at age 23, to pursue a life of spiritual devotion. In addition to lecturing at Hindu temples around the country, he’s spoken to staff at Google headquarters in California and the Kellogg School of Management in Illinois.
“A lot of Indians who have come to the U.S.A. from India share the same education as I do,” says Swami ji. “They are engineers and MBAs. They do have this desire for spiritual knowledge. They would like to hear it in terms that make sense to them. When they come across a Swamiji who has the same educational background, that gives them confidence that they can relate to the message and the manner in which it is presented.” The ancient Hindu gods might not have foreseen that their wisdom could be applied to such matters as corporate management, but Swami ji says the teachings transcend millennia.
The entire atmosphere in Holiday Inn was electrified as the program progressed through its course. Devotees enjoyed every moment and drank the divine nectar of happiness. Swami Ji will be back in Chicago Land area in 2013 – with another electrifying program. Stay tuned!!!!
