Mayor of Morrisville, NC gives a heart-warming welcome to Swami Mukundananda

Program Updates / August 19, 2017


The week-long event Seven Mindsets for Success in Life and Beyond with Swami Mukundananda was a huge success as it drew close to 400 devotees every evening to the Hindu Society of North Carolina.  This was Swamiji’s seventh visit to the Raleigh-Durham area with many devotees looking forward to his inspirational discourses.

On Sunday, Morrisville Mayor Mark Stohlman and Deputy Mayor Steve Rao arrived at the event. The Mayor took this opportunity to welcome Swamiji to Morrisville, NC on behalf of its 27,000 residents. He praised Swamiji for inspiring millions of people on the path of spirituality, holistic health, yoga, meditation, and especially service to others.

He thanked Swamiji for his tireless service to the society and said, “Your dedication is truly inspirational and we are all benefitting from the work you do around the world. Thank you for inspiring us to lead fulfilling lives and lives of service to others.”

This was indeed a heart-warming welcome by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Morrisville. They sat riveted through the entire discourse and even stayed long after dinner mingling with the vibrant crowd. As a sign of unity, respect, and harmony, the Mayor wore the traditional Indian attire of kurta and pyjama.

Swami Mukundananda’s discourses on the topic of Seven Mindsets for Success in Life & Beyond appeal equally to young and old. After North Carolina, Swamiji will be conducting the same lecture series in Denver, CO, and Houston, TX, and Hoffman Estates, IL before heading back to TX for the last retreat in the US.  Click here to find out more details about Swamiji’s upcoming programs.
