Guru Poornima Special Satsang with Swami Chidananda and Laksmi Scalise
Saturday, July 13 • 5:30–7:00 p.m.
Guru Poornima is always a special occasion. During the Global Garland year of celebrating IYI’s founder and our teacher, Sri Swami Satchidananda, we will have an even more enlightening event. That “apostle of peace” always taught that the true guru is within each one of us, urging us to love ourselves and guiding us toward the peace and happiness that are our birthright. On this evening, we will remember and honor our teacher and the teachings that have brought much joy to millions throughout the world. May be attended on a drop-in basis with no preregistration.
