    Whether your quest for your true Self is conscious or unconscious, direct or indirect, ultimately, it is within the context of our daily life, that each one of us must seek a greater truth that settles all our anxieties. But our Self-discovery process gets sabotaged by our own shadow, a false sense of self, borne out of a random assortment of subjective memories, stories, thoughts, disconnected ideas, illusions and delusions that we seemingly ‘own’ in our mind. The shadow defines us and infernally, limit us. To be sorrow free, discernment between the true Self and shadow self is critical, because our true Self is limitlessly creative, blissful and boundless in nature. By growing in your awareness of your boundless Self, you can write your own life script and soar in your consciousness.

    This program celebrates the life of Swami Vivekananda (Narendranath Datta) (1863-1902) commemorating the anniversary of his birth. Regarded as India’s first great spiritual ambassador to the West, Swami Vivekananda is perhaps best known for his inspiring speech which began, “Sisters and brothers of America …” delivered at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago in 1893.

    We have selected Songs, Shlokas and Bhajans reflecting the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda, generating a secular social order through Religious and Ethnic Pluralism that would transcend differences of caste and creed and result in a unique place for India in the World.

    Our singers this morning are Sonali Bhattacharya, Aditya Das, Ashidhara Das, and Shyamoshree Gupta Diamond, with Anoop Bhattacharjya on tabla. All are outstanding artistes who have received praise and recognition for their performances and concerts both in India and in the United States.

    We are currently living in a world that no one would have wished for and no one could have foreseen. Yet in the midst of a global pandemic, racial injustice, and a nation divided, there is hope. Meditation can help us cope with what we experience around us because it allows us to know who we truly are within us.

His focus is the experiential mode of this evolutionary way of being and the importance of its real time application for individuals, humanity, and the very future of our planet. He can be reached at
