I Want, I Need, I Desire: The Price of Happiness with Devamrita Swami!!

March 30, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In our media-crazed world, we are bombarded by as many as 5,000 advertisements a day, telling us what we want, what we need, and what we desire. We chase after the illusion of happiness that such acquisitions represent, thinking that obtaining a new look, a better job, or a better partner will bring us the fulfillment and joy we are seeking. Yet at the end of the day, the advertisements resume, leaving us wanting, needing, and desiring yet again. What price do we unknowingly pay in this addictive pursuit? Where can real and lasting happiness be found? Join Devamrita Swami, a world-traveling monk and author, to discuss the ways in which we seek to find happiness in today’s world, and where true happiness and peace of mind can be found.
