An Evening with Swami Govindananda, The Modern Day Holy Man

  • Common Earth Studio 116a Terrace Rd Guildford, WA Australia (map)

Many people feel a sense of incompleteness. They seemingly are doing all the right things; eating well, exercising, relating to family and friends as best as they know how, yet life continues to challenge and confound them. What is missing?  

According to the Vedas, all feelings of stress, misery, loneliness, frustration, anger, jealousy, greed, etc., stem from being a stranger to your true self. To nurture the life force within means to understand the importance of the energy within the body known as the soul (or atma in Sanskrit) and its needs. With this new-found wisdom comes clarity, leading to wellbeing and purposeful direction. It is the beginning of understanding essentially who you are. 

Join Swami Govindananda for this wonderful talk, that provides a refreshing tonic for the mind and soul.  Following the talk, soak up the power of music and mantra in Kirtan Meditation.  Kirtan is a joyful, soulful meditation that uses traditional Indian instruments and devotional voice to create a pure sound that goes straight to the heart. 


Master Teacher Swami Govindananda (Swamiji) is widely known for his ability to skillfully communicate profound philosophical subjects in an accessible, humorous, and appealing way that arouses others in their spiritual journey. Swamiji also inspires through example, embodying positive spirituality and showing how we can move towards fulfilling our highest potential. But most importantly, he will enrich your own path of self-discovery.          

He presents programs around the world at various yoga studios, conferences and retreats. He illuminates the wisdom that lies at the heart of yoga and gives inspirational insights into the significance of human life.                     

Swamiji is widely known for his depth of knowledge, his gentle, humorous nature and his ability to inspire in others the quest for genuine spiritual living.
Through his retreats, online videos, audio meditations, live presentations and written material, Swamiji has touched the heart of many thousands of people.

Though a Westerner, Swami Govindananda lived many years in India learning personally from a historically accepted, great Spiritual Master. He was taught philosophy and meditation at the deepest levels and after years of intensive training with this great Master, was accepted into the Swami order.                       

He teaches the essence of the great Indian scriptures known as the Vedas, Gita, Bhagawatam and Ramayan, focusing on the pathways of yoga with the philosophies of Karma, Gyan and Bhakti Yoga. With this blend of cultures and over 40 years of experience, Swamiji brings extraordinary clarity to the complex and timeless philosophies of India, making this knowledge easy to understand in a way that has rarely been seen in the West. He is a modern Holy man for today’s times – a bright light for one and all.
