“The clarity that I’ve cultivated here leads to a conviction I will have forever.”

YEP has been an amazing experience. The knowledge that I’ve learnt here has been game changing. Although all this knowledge was available to me before, the great thing about YEP is the setting and the discipline it inculcates in each and every one of us. Through this program, I learned a lot about myself as well. Although I appreciate all the knowledge I received here, I am especially appreciative of the Bhakti aspects of the knowledge I received. I appreciate the theory, but I enjoy and relish hearing the name of the Lord and the Kathas of the Lord. In addition, I especially, ESPECIALLY enjoyed the ritualism that I learned here, like learning puja steps and how to properly conduct a puja and chanting and Sanskrit. I grew a lot from the course and found my goal in life and how everything else in life could fit in while helping me attain my ultimate goal. The clarity that I’ve cultivated here leads to a conviction I will have forever.
