Comments of participants :

‘Through a series of serendipitous events, we had the very good fortune of attending Surya and Neema's September 2009 Rishikesh Vedanta retreat. After spending more than six months seeking spiritual knowledge in India without much satisfaction, this retreat was like a shower of divine grace which left us feeling enriched, energized and hungry for more learning and knowledge. Surya and Neema are extraordinary teachers and spiritual guides that present complex intellectual concepts in a coherent, open, and welcoming framework. Every single day of this retreat was a completely fulfilling and unique experience unto itself with guided meditations, yoga and daily baths in the Ganga, complementing the core Vedanta lectures. Our biggest complaint was that there was never enough time in the day to learn from and be with our teachers and the rest of the retreat group. More than anything else, this retreat confirmed our inherent belief that the knowledge contained within traditional Indian philosophy is life altering in a highly meaningful and fulfilling way, if one is blessed enough to find the right teachers. Our outlook on life was deeply enhanced as a result of this experience and we are more encouraged than ever before to continue on our path for more knowledge.’

levels of objectivity we are speaking about?
