Self development means different things to different people. This self development class is based on the ancient wisdom of Vedanta—a philosophy that originated in the Himalayas over 10,000 years ago.
Vedanta teaches the higher values of life and living. With these values you become energised, peaceful, happy and content. But it takes commitment.
Imagine taking a handful of moss from a moss-covered pond and putting it on the shore. Keep going. Little by little you will remove the moss of ego and agitation and gain a permanent state of tranquility and composure. This is what Vedanta does.
Other practices are like plunging your hands into a moss-covered pond and pushing the moss aside. You gain a glimpse of your reflection (peace of mind), but as soon as something disturbs your mental equilibrium, the tranquillity you feel begins to fade and the moss of agitation comes rushing back and again covers the pond (your mind).

There is an ancient Indian tradition called Gurudakshina, which means giving back to the Guru (spiritual teacher), out of respect and gratitude for what has been given.
The attitude of giving is essential for spiritual development. Unless we develop this attitude we will continue to suffer in life. The law of life is that the more we give, the more peace, harmony, happiness and contentment we will have.
