Gaunts House Retreat – Building Your Relationship with the Divine and Yourself
Pujya Swamiji gives a special satsang in the UK as part of a summer countryside retreat. He discusses so beautifully how we can build our relationship with the Divine. So many people wherever he goes are looking for peace and happiness; even people who seem to have everything – money and power – want more and are still not happy. The mind, due to external desires, creates so much expectation within us, so we continuously look to keep filling the holes within us, yet we continue to feel empty. Pujya Swamiji explains that we can feel whole and complete, that nothing material is needed as it is all inside us. If we remove the “I”, the “want”, the ego and all the desires and expectations, then all that remains is peace & happiness. Life is about becoming a role model and we can only do this by treating ourselves compassionately. First you must work on your relationship with yourself before you can work on your relationship with others. If we create perfect harmony within, then we are able to share with others.
