Last Vishwaguruji's seminar in 2017 took place in Salzburg
The last weekend before Christmas and before Vishwaguruji's winter journey to India, weekend seminar took place in the festively decorated town of Salzburg in Austria.
A short summary of Vishwaguruji's lectures in Salzburg :
The real root of every stress is fear; the fear of losing something - comfort, wealth, reputation, love, a possession, a person, etc. The remedy for stress is consciousness, awareness. If we are aware that everything in life is transient and we cannot hold on to anything, then much wíthin us relativizes and relaxes. A great fear of every human being - the greatest fear of all - is the fear of death; of dying, of pain, disease and sickness. The reality we have to face is that one day we will have to leave this world empty-handed. The only remedy for this fear, which also causes us a deep, often unconscious stress and anxiety, is mantra and meditation.
The Saturday evening Satsang in Salzburg was dedicated to Christmas and the special highlight was a performance of three Mozart arias, presented by an opera singer and piano accompanist from Salzburg Opera.
