Gopal Damerla: Tulane University’s Bhakti Yoga Club is being headed by HG Gopinatha dasa, MD (Oncologist) to raise an awareness of human life’s essential nature through Vedic spirituality, vegetarianism and eco-friendly living. Ever since its inception, the forum has won appreciation of the faculty as well as the support of students at undergraduate, graduate and PhD levels.

Speaking at the Club’s recent weekly meeting, on the topic “Towards a Greener Earth-A life in Balance”, HH Bhakti Raghava Swami said that if we are open-minded there is a sustainable solution to the root cause of the modern world’s crisis. Maharaja began the presentation with an introduction to “Bhagavad-gita As It Is” and it being distinct from the multitude of the philosophies and other versions resulting from arm chair speculation. He highlighted that the consciousness of all living entities is for engaging it in loving exchanges with God and these activities are called devotion or Bhakti yoga. Further he elaborated on the principle of pleasing the Supreme Lord being the time-tested secret behind the means of succeeding in striking a balance in life. Harmony with ourselves as well as others and nature will happen when we are happy from within. He said “the needs of life are significantly simplified by culturing this dynamic system of knowledge and should be the basis of the classless society system to drive the ideal social and cultural environment for redevelopment of higher consciousness. ISKCON isn’t trying to introduce Hinduism or convert but to introduce and explain a method in which to live a simple natural way of life-it is meant to be a socio- cultural (and spiritual) movement” The audience appreciated that the solution is natural and sustainable and it lies in making the connection between the land and cows. Maharaja concluded “It is the human society’s unnatural disconnection with these important elements of life by unchecked blind urban life style that has made the civilization become both unsustainable and devoid of strong human relationships based on love and trust”.

Maharaja answered a number questions and a the audience viewed the documentary video on the Gokul Dham Eco-village project in India. Maharaja also spoke at the University of Southern Alabama during his tour of the region
