About the event
In this one-hour session, Swami Parthasarathy turns our attention within – to analyse our personality and assess its condition.
Human beings can achieve permanent peace and absolute prosperity. But lack of the knowledge of living has denied us peace and success. This talk should encourage us to drop our complacency, control our personality and overcome the challenges of life. Learn the art of relating to the world to enjoy harmony in relationships and success at work.
Life is a sport.
Understand the game. Play it well.
It is a choice.
Choose to achieve.
Look forward to Monday morning,
not Friday evenings.
A powerful intellect
will transform your life.

Ancient Wisdom in Modern Times
In Indian tradition, Guru Purnima is a sacred day where one salutes the great sages and saints who have shared their eternal wisdom with the world. They offer humanity an opportunity to live a life of higher values and discover the peace and happiness that lies within. With respect and gratitude, the student humbly surrenders to the master’s guidance and takes to the path of self-purification. This annual lecture offers a timeless philosophy to the world.
“It is not the world that distresses you but how you relate to it. “
– SWAMI PARTHASARATHY
“The life work of Swami Parthasarathy has made an important world step in bringing the fundamental attention of the Human Intellect to the fore. It is up to educators, pupils and individuals alike to take this knowledge and utilise it in their learnings, teachings and everyday life.”
– DOUG SMOLLAN
As a journalist in an increasingly fractured world, I’ve found that a guideline to life and living is essential; but what’s more essential is that such a guidance is based on truths that can be tested. Among the countless traditions that open a path to humanity’s essence. Vedanta is all but unique in this regards.”
