Discourse by Shri Vivek Gupta

About the Speaker: Vikekji is relatable and engaging precisely because he understands where we come from. Despite following society’s rubric for success like many of us — first attending a prestigious business school and later managing a multimillion-dollar business — Vivekji found himself profoundly dissatisfied. Driven to seek more from life, he joined Chinmaya Mission’s residential monastery in India, where he lived and studied as a monk for more than two years under the spiritual master, Swami Tejomayananda. (More information about his youtube and podcast offerings are given below).
