Speaker: Shri Gaur Gopal Das
Venue: Pala, ITC Sonar
The members and guests of the Ladies Study Group were audience to one of the most invigorating talks by Shri Gaur Gopal Das, an Indian monk, lifestyle coach and motivational speaker. Swamiji unabashedly put the women on top of the pyramid, who do not need empowerment as she is the 'Shakti'. His advise to all present was to 'live in the moment', enjoy the 'safar' or else he believes we will 'suffer' in life! He reiterated in the mantra of 'self-care', before taking care of others. "One does not need to be like an icecream, which melts in selfishness but be a candle, which gives light to others in its selflessness."
He advocated the virtues of patience, tolerance and forgiveness, as there is no one who is perfect. His advise is to share one's pain and grief with loved ones to gather support and thereby bring balance in our lives; although he believes there is no perfect balance!
The LSG forum witnessed a brainteasing magical event, which often had them in splits at his witty humour.
