Yoga Vedanta Retreats 


Center for Human Excellence

Who  are you? An officer ? A student ?  A struggling youth? A retired person?  The funny guy?  The nice girl?  Father, mother, son, daughter………all these identities were either acquired by you or were superimposed on you…………But, there is one identity you don’t have to earn and which cannot be taken away from you….
 Explore  the reality, understand, identify and know yourself.  This is the first step for spiritual self growth, Harmony, Peace and freedom.
Retreat – The aim of the Yoga-Vedanta retreat is to equip the campers with methods  of the requisite training to enable them in their endeavour to blossom into truly humane, serviceful, integrated personalities, so that they succeed, at least in an appreciable measure, in living a life of goodness and wholeness personally, and of dedication, unselfish cooperation and constructive work socially.

It needs no special mention that this achievement in one’s own person and in society is obviously rooted to the extent to which one’s practical life is attuned to the Ultimate Reality of the Universe. Philosophical discipline, thus, is the precondition for leading a perfectly sociable, ethical and progressive life of an onward expansion towards the realisation of the Supreme Goal of existence.
Objectives of the Retreats
  •  to help people acquire emotional maturity
  • to understand and appreciate our rich cultural and spiritual heritage
  • to prepare a person for inner growth which leads to a meaningful and refreshing life and help unfold his/her potential
