Ageing - a myth - Online Talk
12 September 2021 9.30 am to 10.30 am

While age is a fact pertaining to the body, ageing relates to the mind. Maladies such as worry, anxiety, sleeplessness, stress and fear pollute the mind and cause premature ageing. Further, the thought of inevitable death sends shivers down the spine in later years.

The pursuit of Vedanta fortifies your intellect and liberates your mind from these maladies.

Its sublime philosophy, relieves the self-hypnotic identification with body, mind and intellect to explore and discover the Immortal SELF within. With true joy radiating from within, you will then discover that ageing is a myth.

The lecture is presented by Shri. Ranagarajan, eminent Vedanta resource in the GTA disciple of Swami Parthasarathy.
