How might one overcome the tendency to jeopardize one’s own emotional maturity and spiritual growth? How can one learn to manage stubborn desires and senseless distractions that arise from the unconscious mind and inhibit the assimilation of the truth of oneself as one with the entire universe and its cause?

These questions will be addressed, along with some practical ways gleaned from the Upanishads to overcome the most common forms of self-sabotage.

Dr. Swamini Svatmavidyananda Saraswati has taught at several universities nationally, including UC Berkeley. She is widely recognized as a scholar of Advaita Vedanta and is a disciple of Pujya Sri Swami Dayanandaji Saraswati, an internationally known Acharya of the Advaita Vedanta tradition, interfaith leader, and scholastic author of Vedanta, responsible for the inception of the All India Movement for Seva (AIM for Seva), a non-profit enabling rural Indian children to receive a proper education. She is widely in demand for lectures and seminars in the USA and internationally for her expertise in interreligious engagement and in-depth training and scholarship on Advaita Vedanta. Dr. Saraswati is the Acharya of Arsha Vijnana Gurukulam, which was founded in 2004 and has centers in Atlanta, GA; Eugene, OR, Washington DC, Detroit, MI; Milwaukee, WI; and Fort Meyers, FL

As a founding member of the “Global Women’s Peace Initiative,” she has traveled globally, addressing the ever-increasing challenges that face humanity in a global ethos. An erudite scholar, Swamini-ji addresses contemporary challenges facing the world, from global warming to religious/social unrest, in her unfolding of the Upanishads, the foundational spiritual texts of the Hindu tradition.
