Dear ,

Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, "...of seasons I am flower-bearing spring." It is only befitting of such a season that we are delighted to welcome back HG Tribhanga dasa to share valuable insights on the ancient medical science of 'Ayurveda' in a seminar. He will also be enlightening us on the subject matter of 'Vedic Parenting' and delving into the deep subject of 'Vedic Psychology'. Additionally, make sure you book your private health consultation, to tailor-make your own health plan.

We know that life is not always plain sailing, there may be occasional bumps in the road. Therefore, special guest HH Bhakti Rasayana Sagar Swami will be holding a seminar on 'Life Without Conflicts' to help equip us with tools that resolve conflicts in all aspects of our lives.

Everyone is striving for success in life, what to speak of spiritual life!? Eastern philosophy tells us that true success lies not in being the best, but in doing the best that we can! Find out from erudite scholar HG Akrura dasa how to become a fearless spiritual warrior by understanding the key to succeed in life, in the upcoming seminar 'Success Secrets from the Bhagavad Gita'.

Last but certainly not the least, we are delighted to have the honor of hosting the highly respected HH Candramauli Swami for an in-depth seminar, 'Bringing Your Mind on Board', which will empower us with the skills needed to effectively manage our ever-obstinate mind and emotions. Definitely not one to be missed!

As always we would like to invite you to try out our weekly yoga classes that take place every Friday for healing the mind, body and soul. Visit www.iskcon.london/lcvs/yoga for more details.

There's much more, so please read on!

We can't wait to see you!

Best wishes,
London College of Vedic Studies

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
Bhaktin Sandhya
"The Bhakti Sastri course helped me to transform my thinking and provided me with the answers to questions that were previously impossible to find. The course is facilitated in a very structured way and the teachers are very patient and understanding. This course definitely has helped me to become more mature in my spiritual practice, I have made many friends and felt part of a new community. It benefited me greatly and I would strongly recommend it to everybody."

TEACHER'S CORNER
Murli Manohara dasa
"I have been teaching the Nectar of Devotion for the last few years and also sometimes sections off the Bhagavad Gita. Often devotees struggle to find the inspiration and time to study Srila Prabhupada's books on their own. Studying together in a group opens up a whole new dimension where devotees can share their realisations and ask questions. It is always very enlivening and would encourage anyone to take part."
