A SPECIAL LECTURE
 
by SWAMI BODHANANDA of SAMBODH FOUNDATION
on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1:00 P.M. 
 
TOPIC: SEVEN HINDU SPIRITUAL LAWS OF SUCCESS
 
SWAMI BODHANANDA is an accomplished teacher of Vedanta and meditation. He was born in Mattatur, Kerala, 36 miles from Kalady, birthplace of Adi Sankaracharya.
His birthplace, spiritual fervor and experiences as a youth, seemed to destine him for the life of a sannyasin.
At an early age he felt a spiritual calling, readily took to spiritual tapas, and, with a deep sense of compassion, vowed to help humanity. With this frame of mind, he completed his undergraduate degree in economics and political science at Christ College, Irinjalkuda, Kerala. 
The young aspirant, interrupting his post-graduate pursuits, set out in search of divine understanding, wandering throughout the Himalayas for a number of years. Finally, he settled in Kerala where, as a brahmachari, he joined the Sarasvati order - one of the ten sannyasa orders established by Adi Shankaracharya, the renowned 8th century Indian philosopher and exponent of Advaita Vedanta.

In 1978, after several years of intensive study, he embarked on his mission of teaching. His brilliance as both a student and teacher of Vedanta was apparent and, in 1984, he was initiated into sannyas ashram - the crown of renunciation. His leadership capabilities were soon recognized, and in 1988 he was offered the honor of setting up a teacher training facility, Sandeepani, in Kerala. Many of his students from that era have become well-respected and accomplished Swamis. 
Presently, Swami Bodhananda is the Spiritual Founder and Director of 11 organizations and ashrams under the umbrella of Sambodh Foundation, New Delhi, India (1991); the Bodhananda Research Foundation for Management and Leadership Studies, Trivandrum, Kerala, India (1994); and, The Sambodh Society, Inc. (1997), his American organization. Each ashram and/or organization is unique, tailored to the needs, interests and special capabilities of his devotees engaged therein. Through these organizations, and under Swamiji’s guidance, his devotees receive scriptural knowledge, spiritual training and perform social service.
