Title: Longing for Love in a World of Dreams
Location: York University, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Student Centre, ROOM 321
Description: The basic principle of every living being is that we have a general propensity to love someone. It’s very difficult to live happily without loving someone else. This propensity is present in every living being. Even animals like tigers and birds have this loving nature, and it is certainly present in human beings. The big question, however, is how and where do we repose our love so that it makes everyone happy?
Is it possible to fulfill the loving propensity our heart craves for? Can we experience ‘unconditional love’? Or are these simply ideas in a world of broken dreams?
Join us for an enlightening discussion with Devamrita Swami as he shares ancient eastern knowledge and presents a unique perspective to the love question.
Through a unique blend of musical meditations, a delicious vegan meal and an insightful presentation we will take you on a spiritual journey, giving you hands-on experience of the loving propensity that exists in each and every one of our hearts.
