Elevate To Liberate Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK) Retreat - Shattered Sight


by Abhijeet Sambangi
Happiness. The concept seems so simple, yet almost everyone fails to achieve it. The kind of happiness I speak of cannot be found in temporary moments of light scattered throughout our lives.

But that is the purpose of this reflection, to reveal how a single three-day CHYK camp with three gurus shattered my perceptions of purpose, wellbeing, and Vedanta.
