TWENTY two years after the Vedantic Master, Swami Chinmayananda gave discourses on the Bhagavad Geeta and introduced the Chinmaya Mission to spiritual seekers in Brisbane, Australia, Swami Swaroopananda visited in April 2013 to present a series of talks entitled “Win the Mind, Wind the World” – a highly practical framework of time tested virtues and mental approaches for ordinary individuals to attain happiness and success in life. As is the Chinmaya Mission way, these talks, though based on an ancient ‘text’ – in this case, the Vibhisana Geeta portion of Sri Tulsidasji’s Ramcharitamanasa – were presented in a highly accessible way using contemporary examples and amusing references to less positive aspects of our human nature.
Swami Swaroopananda endeared himself to the Brisbane Community through the kind and loving way he delivered the firm and urgent message of this beautiful topic.
The Brisbane CHYK (Chinmaya Yuva Kendra) members showcased the talent and energy of our Brisbane youth, providing MC support each night and helping out with publicity, audio visuals and bookstalls. In addition, Swamiji also held two very popular sessions with the Balvihar children, teaching them through his beautiful Krishna stories that “God loves You”.
Swami Swaroopanada will be back in Brisbane and will enthral the audience on the topic “Geeta at a Glance” based on the ancient scriptures and the revered Bhagvad Geeta. All are welcome to these free talks every evening from 7:30 to 9:00pm at BEMAC, 102 Main St., Kangaroo Point, from 21st to 25th April 2015. Br. Gopal Chaitanya will be conducting a Bala Yagna on Bhagvad Geeta for kids (5-12 years) at the same time.
