During this festival, organised for the welfare of the newly wed brides from the local villages, Sri Swamiji answered questions on such topics as how to develop love and compassion for others through giving and serving, how to manage the mind and emotions through devotion to God, the guru-disciple relationship, his work to uplift the needy villagers living in his neighbourhood, the position of women in society, marriage, family life and education.
With his incomparable wisdom and humour, Sri Swamiji explains how and why people must change and adapt in order to meet the needs of the 21st century.
