Join us for a special evening of enlightening discussion with Devamrita Swami, traveling Monk, author of several books and Yale graduate. Money can buy happiness and technology can buy time were some of the most prominent beliefs that governed the past few decades that has seen a viral growth of technology culture. As gadgets flood markets and endless information is no more than a click away, one would assume society is perhaps at the pinnacle of evolution. But is it truly so? Social statistics will paint a grim reality that easily shake the very foundations of these assumptions.

Social support systems like even nuclear families are fast becoming extinct. Lifetime friendships and marriages are outdated. Depression and mental issues peak as our sacred economy based on the eternal expansion model meets its climax at the edge of earth’s resources. No one seems to have clear answers on how will things go on and yet we all ignore some essential questions. Ambiguity and spirituality are maybe considered synonyms in contemporary culture but real wisdom lies in facing the real questions of life and seeking some real answers.

As future lies in the hands of the present generation, we invite you all to join us for an enlightening evening of discussion with traveling monk Devamrita Swami who stops here on his global circuit. As wars, economic meltdown, environmental collapse and social stigmas ravage our world lets ask some real questions and make a choice to embrace the Wisdom Culture. Delicious vegan dinner and mantra meditation to stir the mind and belly.
