|The Suddhananda Foundation for Self-Knowledge is situated in Southern India about 20 km from Chennai (previously known as Madras) on a tranquil seaside location. Swami Suddhananda, a student of Swami Chinmayananda and Swami Dayananda Saraswathi, heads this learning centre. He has been teaching, conducting workshops on and giving lectures on Self-Knowledge all over the world for the last 25 years.|
|As a person who has achieved 'mastery over the mind' through the discovery of the ultimate happiness and inner peace, he is eager that everyone share this vision. To this end, he kindles interest in the student to go beyond the mind to the very source of happiness.|
|The present educational system focuses on developing skills - physical and intellectual - and teaches one "how to make a living". It does not train people to face the emotional challenges of life. Caught in the whirlpool of day-to-day existence, people realise they have not learnt "how to live". The Foundation for Self-Knowledge fills this void created by the educational system and helps students discover the true purpose of life.|
As indicated earlier, Swamiji conducts lecture sessions, weekend
camps and short residential courses in India and overseas (Singapore, Hong
Kong, Australia, New Zealand, U.K., U.S.A., West Indies, the Philippines
and other places). He also offers long residential courses at Chennai for
those who want to teach Self-Knowledge as their chosen profession.
Whatever your degree of interest in the pursuit of the ultimate happiness, this is where you come for answers.
MESSAGE FROM SWAMIJI
The idea of Self-Knowledge is to introduce one to one’s own self which is Truth, Happiness and Immortality. ‘Who we are’ is always the same whereas ‘what we have’ varies. (In fact, it should vary for effective functioning in life). All of us, when asked to introduce ourselves never speak of ourselves as we are, but only recite our roles or the names of things that we have.
Each individual must know himself not only to accept himself as he ‘is’
and all that he ‘has’, but also to effortlessly accept others first for
who they are and thereafter for what they have.
