Residential Brahmachari Training Course

Towards a Global Population of Universal Citizens

"I believe all religions pursue the same goal of cultivating human goodness and bringing happiness to all human beings. Though their means may appear different, the end is the same."
—Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
