Life Transformation Program with Swamiji in Tampa

#TransformYourLife / September 13, 2021

Swami Mukundananda’s Visit to Tampa for Life Transformation Program.The program started in the evening with the yoga session.   During his discourse, Swamiji emphasized on the importance of mind.

Honorable Swami Mukundananda graced Tampa devotees with his presence from August 23rd to 25th by conducting the Life Transformation Program at the Hindu Temple of Florida. Swamiji is a world-renowned authority on mind management, a bestselling author, and a Vedic scholar. This year the topic of series was, “Science of Mind Management". 

The program started in the evening with the yoga session.  Swamiji explained various yoga postures along with the health benefits related to them. The yoga instructions were easy to follow. Seniors, children, and youth were able to participate in the yoga practice with ease. Yoga and Meditation session was followed by Swamiji’s discourse on mind management.


During his discourse, Swamiji emphasized on the importance of mind. He narrated many stories where mind was the reason for the downfall of business tycoons, and for the upliftment of the underprivileged. Swamiji mentioned that the mind is very powerful as it generates non-stop thoughts, which in turn have the power to break or make an individual.

After establishing the importance of mind, he explained that the mind and its thoughts can be controlled by the intellect. It is the intellect which tells the mind what to do and what not to do. For example, an individual would not speak up on the face of his unsavory supervisor because he knows if he does, he will lose his job. That kind of control comes from intellect.

Going deeper into the topic, Swamiji mentioned that intellect is driven by our values and belief systems. He said that our beliefs should be based on the perfect source of knowledge. Once we have established the right set of beliefs and values, we will be able to dovetail our mind and lives in a right direction.


In his lectures, Swamiji presents the deepest knowledge of the Scriptures in a very simple way. He weaves the ancient wisdom into the latest stories of the modern-day world, which today’s audience can easily relate to. His stories are from far East and West, full of mysticism and information. While narrating these stories, he creates a tier system and introduces the process of mind management to the audience. As people attend session after session, they are able to understand the whole concept of mind management.

The program concluded with the lively Kirtans and Aarti and in the end, dinner prasad was served to everyone who was present at the program. Swamiji graciously sat with his devotees at the dinner table and interacted with them.

In addition to yoga, meditation and lectures, there was a book-corner at the venue which had a rich collection of books, audio-video CDs and flash drives.


The books included many Amazon bestsellers by Swamiji like The Science of Mind Management, 7 Mindsets for Success, Happiness and Fulfilment and 7 Divine Laws to Awaken Your Best Self.  There were also books on the topics of Healthy Diet, Yoga for the Body, Mind and Soul, as well as a rich collection of wisdom and story books for the children.

The most favorite of all was 'The Song of God' - A Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita by Swami Mukundananda.

Apart from the evening program, there was an arrangement for morning walks with Swamiji at the devotees’ houses.  The morning walk with Swamiji was a great opportunity to interact with him and ask questions.

The Life Transformation Program in Tampa provided a wholistic approach to nurture the body, mind, and soul. More than 200 people attended this program. It was surprising to see peoples’ motivation during the pandemic. People were so inspired that they attended all the sessions as late as 9 pm after a long day and expressed peace, calmness, and enthusiasm.

Below are some of the devotees’ comments about their experience:

Swamiji’s session on Science of Mind Management was incredible. He went into fundamentals of mind management with anecdotes of famous people. His teachings are simple to grasp and easy to follow. He is able to motivate people to do better in life and be good to others. It’s always a blessing to attend his sessions.” Kartik Nayak, Tampa.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar with Swamiji. I came with an open mind wanting to learn more about the Hindu faith and more specifically his thoughts on the power of mind management.   I was treated warmly by both Swamiji and the congregants. He was a lot more approachable than I expected and had a lovely sense of humor. His presentations were deeply engaging as he shared parables as well as personal stories to make the concepts relatable. The chanting helped foster a sense of community.” Ashley Guyton, Yoga Teacher, Tampa.

“I consider myself blessed to have been able to follow him for more than a decade. Clamped and isolated as many of us have been during the past months due to the pandemic, the three days in his presence was akin to finding an oasis in a desert. His blend of spirituality, storytelling, and logic, encompassed in humor held the audience captive for nearly two hours every day. At the end of the session, we were enlightened, invigorated, and motivated with a new goal in mind. Jai SRI RadhaKrishna.” Asha Deshpande, Tarpon Springs

“Each time that I have the opportunity to participate in Swamiji’s programs he opens and expands my heart! He has a way of translating complex concepts into simple profound words. Meditate on God, Love God and any and everything else will just fall into place!” Annette Marie Anderson, Oldsmar
