Wit accompanies wisdom of Scholar

One of the greatest attributes of the late Swami Chinmayananda (who established the world famous ‘Chinmaya Foundation’) was his simple and direct approach to human issues with the ability to combine humour and life’s experience with spiritual teachings.

Among his disciples who follow such a refreshing approach is Swami Anubhavananda, who is not only a Vedantic Scholar but also a management expert, psychologist and socialist. His discourses are therefore interesting, informative, entertaining and most important of all, educative.

He will be in Auckland next week and present nightly talk from April 12 to April 16, 2016 from 730 pm to 9 pm at Fickling Convention Centre, 546 Mount Albert Road, Three Kings.

Challenge of Change

Anubhavananda will speak on ‘Coping with the Challenge of Change’ the first three days and on ‘Living in the Light of Wisdom’ during the remaining days.

Almost 12 years ago, promoting his visit (Indian Newslink, May 15, 2004), we had said that he encapsulates the nuances of life, the art of leading a clean, healthy and happy existence in his lectures.

Auckland based New Zealand Vedanta Education Society Inc, which is organising his forthcoming visit had organised the lectures in 2004 as well.

Swami Anubhavananda is known for his erudition, clarity of thought and ability to appeal to the righteousness of people.

His devotees describe him as ‘the Experience of Happiness.’

“Swami Anubhavananda’s personality reflects both of a simple being and an erudite scholar. He is suave and witty. He is equally at home with people of all ages, be it the children, teenagers, middle aged or old aged. He communicates the most difficult of the philosophy in a simple and direct manner. His words directly address the heart and breathes into us a new life of joy,” they said.

Swami Anubhavananda’s ‘Mauj Mein Raho’ audiocassettes are said to obliterate the oft-quoted feeling ‘happiness is more a mirage than reality; it is impractical and best forgotten.’

He is also adept at giving discourses on the Bhagvad Gita, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Panchadasi, Amrutanubhav, Vidyan Bhairav, Vedanta Bhupali, and Tripura Rahasya.

Happy Swami

Raj and Shanta Naidu of the Vedanta Education Society said that Anubhavananda is known as ‘The Happy Swami.’

“He is a visiting faculty member for teaching Management, Yoga and Vedanta at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (based in Pilani in the North Indian State of Rajasthan) and Kaivalyaham (Lonavala in Maharashtra). He was earlier the Acharya (Principal) of the Sandeepany Sadhanalaya (Powai). The Inter-Cultural Open University of the Netherlands honoured him with a Doctorate in 1999,” they said.
