2-Day Residential Spiritual Retreat

Hobli, Karnataka India


2-Day Residential

Spiritual Retreat


Ageing Gracefully. Meaningfully. Usefully

According to Sanatana Dharma man’s life is very precious from the time he is in the mother’s womb to the time that he enters the grave and beyond. In this particular journey is described as Balya, Yavvana Grihasta, Vanaprasta and Sanyasa. One of the least understood stage of life is Vanaprasta. Without knowing what is the true meaning of it somehow people shudder these last two stages. When you say that the whole life is precious there is no concept called retirement in the Indian philosophy. Yes, after meaningfully engaging in the activities of the household, whether he is a man or a woman he will have to gracefully progress into the next stage of life called as Vanaprasta.

In the retreat, we will try to see how gracefully and meaningfully one can lead a life which is a fruitful extension of having had a very successful householder life. This retreat will be useful for both one, who has already successfully completed the life of householder, and a youngster who is entering into Life. The retreat will be blended with some practical sessions and also interactive sessions.
