5. Jnana Yajna by Guruji – July 07, 2013 – July 13, 2013

We are delighted to announce that Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayanandaji will be conducting a Jnana Yajna at Chinmaya Prabha, on Svetasvatara Upanisad. This text mainly reveals the true nature of God and how to establish our essential oneness with Him.

Guruji’s captivating and endearing rendition during the last Jnana Yajna in Houston in 2011, had enthralled all attendees, and had left them wanting more.

Please see the flyer for all details..

We encourage all members to plan ahead so they can take vacation during this time and attend all 3 discourses to get the most out of this divine text.

Please note that this is a public event. Share the Jnana Yajna details with all your friends and relatives so maximum people can enrich themselves with this rare opportunity.
