Comments of participants :

‘We are so grateful for the warmth and kindness in which Surya and Neema guided us into the studies and understanding of Vedanta. We had no idea that in such a short time, we could have drowned so deeply into this wonderful, mysterious and life changing ocean of knowledge.

Neema and Surya, besides being incredibly consistent in everything they teach, also have a delightful compassion when they are transmitting this knowledge. We, as persons and psychologists, really do not know any better way than the way they impart this profound teaching.’
Edmundo Barbosa & Claudia Massa Regina, Brazil

‘I am very grateful to Surya and Neema for giving us this teaching. I can say with confidence that my life can be divided into 'before' and 'after' this retreat, as it has enabled me to change my outlook towards life completely. The vision of the Upanishads was unfolded with mastery with the help of an evolved methodology of teaching. I consider every human being should benefit from this teaching since it is directly relevant to our lives and fundamentally changes the way we live.

The natural environment in which the retreat took place was splendid and the overall atmosphere was relaxed, friendly, joyful with a group which consisted of beautiful persons. Thank you very much !! I am looking forward to taking another retreat with you both.’
Maria Elena Vietto, Argentina

‘Surya and Neema were remarkable in their ease to transmit knowledge within the framework of a traditional methodology of teaching. Their enthusiasm and the passion to share knowledge were contagious and inspiring to all of us. The sessions were open to dialogues. Meditation was conducted with clarity and simplicity. Besides, the classroom teaching, human values they exhibited throughout the retreat were remarkable.

The group of participants in the retreat was an example of unity in diversity as there were people from Brazil, Argentina, South and North India, Reunion Island. This made it into a real group where the dynamic of the whole group was greater than the sum of individuals.

In conclusion, it was an unforgettable retreat and even more, a decisive step in discovering the order of Isvara, after all the years I had previously spent on this journey. Thank you Neema and Surya for sharing this wonderful knowledge.’
Roberto Toranzo & Stella Thomas, Argentina
