East Coast Relishes the Bliss of Devotion with Swami Mukundananda
Retreat Updates / May 31, 2019
Two and a half days of sheer bliss and joy just concluded in a sold-out event in the East coast (Baltimore, MD). Held in the serene setting of suburban Baltimore, it attracted hundreds of attendees, with many of them flying in from far places such Texas, California, and even Canada!
Meticulously planned and executed, the program began with great enthusiasm and excitement! Swamiji’s divine presence filled the room with raging energy, enticing the devotees to eagerly get started. With personal involvement in every activity and session, Swamiji brought the retreat to life. His personable and joyful nature attracted the hearts of all!
The schedule had a perfect blend of holistic wellness through the yoga, pranayama, and meditation sessions, sewn into more of Swamiji’s lectures, question and answer sessions, outdoor nature walk, soulful kirtans, and one of the most beautiful festival celebration leaving the crowd dancing late into the night!
Swamiji’s discourses contained deep spiritual wisdom conveyed in the most lucid manner, brought to life even more by his relatable examples, and witty humor. Devotion and bliss of God was felt in the air -- undeniably heart-warming! Swamiji’s ability to capture the essence of ‘bhakti’ is unmatched and unique to him alone.
The kids and youth had a blast of their time as well! Not only could they participate in many of the adult activities, they also had a parallel stream of classes held separately designed with activities targeting their inner growth and personality development. And yes, Swamiji made special time to spend with both the Bal-Mukund kids and the Youth Club teenagers, listening to their presentations, and enlightening them with his wisdom that they will remember for lifetime!
With devotees immersed in bliss and complete absorption in the divine, the participants wished the retreat would not come to an end!
Dedicated volunteers at the program attended to every fine detail of the retreat, ensuring a smooth and seamless experience for all the participants!
The retreat came to an end with heart-touching testimonials by the participants. Hear what they had to say:
“Swamiji has added a new dimension to my life! This retreat has transformed me from within! I cannot wait to attend the next one!”
“My kids have not stopped praising their experience at Bal-Mukund and Youth Club. The teachers have taught them lessons that I struggled to do so at home. My personal development has been enormous and I’m taking back lessons that will serve me a lifetime.”
“The experience here has been incredible! Swamiji’s presence throughout the retreat was absolutely enthralling and blissful! The divinity of his presence touches the heart, and the wisdom he imparts is impeccable.”
