Questions of Existence:
The Existential Laboratory
Who we are, why we are and what purpose there is to life, are all existential questions we ask ourselves at some point or other. However in our everyday cares and concerns, these larger mysteries get pushed to the background. And more often than not, life becomes an outward journey of establishing good careers, working to build a home, ensuring financial stability and success. In this pursuit of happiness, our inner journey is neglected, with the result that even our sense of identity is defined by how others view us.
It often takes a paradigm-shifting event such as the death of a loved one, to lead us on a journey of self discovery. This 'inner world' is just as important, if not more so, to a holistic, healthy life. In fact, it is within the realms of this inner world that we can ever hope to realize true happiness.
The Existential Laboratory (E-Lab), in essence, facilitates this journey into the self. It is designed to enable a re-discovery of one's true and natural state through carefully structured programs that engage the mind, body and soul. It enables one to re-discover the inner child, which we have forgotten in our adulthood. Conducted across India, it took place this November, in the tranquil and peaceful settings at Sangamner.
We are happy to say that close to 115 participants took part in this 4-day program, organized by Sri Rajesh Malpani of Malpani Pariwar Trust.
Management through Mahabharata
An epic tale of antiquity, the Mahabharata has been a source of inspiration across centuries. It is more than just a tale, however; within it lies one of the greatest studies of the human consciousness. From the roots of greed and its consequences to the achievement of success against all odds, the Mahabharata provides invaluable lessons from each of the principal characters. These lessons are applicable in today's age, more than ever before.
The 'Management through Mahabharata' program applies the lessons of the Mahabharata to the management paradigm. This November 8th and 9th saw 135 participants, led by Smt. Srikala and supported 8 chapter chairpersons, take part in the program conducted by Swamiji at Nirguna Bangalore, Bangalore. A second program, led by 6 chapter chairpersons, was conducted on 29th and 30th November, at Hotel Green Park and led by Sri P.V.R. K. Prasad. Close 109 participants took part in this program.
