On Jan 8th, 2019, Swami Chidananda and Commander Guruprasad addressed defence personnel on the topic “Holistic Insights for All-round Success – Tips for Happy Life. There were more than 150 officers and their ladies who attended this motivational talk with great interest. Swamiji advised the youth to strive hard and always put in 100% effort in every worthy task that they take up. He also stressed the importance of teamwork for success and quoted one or two verses from the Gita, while emphasizing that these were universal truths irrespective of belief in God.
Overall the session was very well received and was a much needed step in the right direction for the defence personnel whose lives are often fraught with danger as they perform their duty in the defence of their motherland.
