Embark on a Life-Transforming Journey with Swami Mukundananda July 15-19 in Tampa

Discover a treasure trove of practical and spiritual wisdom by attending Swami Mukundananda’s Life Transformation Program from July 15-19 at the Hindu Temple of Florida, 5509 Lynn Road.  The ingredients of a successful life cost nothing since our thoughts are majorly responsible for happiness and distress. Swami Mukundananda will show us how to utilize thoughts to custom shape our lives by mastering our minds and applying those techniques daily. Swamiji’s programs across the U.S. and India have improved and transformed the lives of many people. His teachings are rooted in ancient scriptures and modern science, offering invaluable guidance for navigating the complexities of life.

Each evening starts at 6:45 with a Meet and Greet, followed by discourse and aarti. Dinner prasad will be served daily. Also, there will be daily morning walks and Satsang with Swamiji, providing opportunities to interact directly with him and ask questions.
Swamiji is a much sought-after speaker at companies like Google, Amazon and Apple as well as universities such as IITs, IIMs, MIT and Stanford. He is also spearheading the building of Jagadguru Kripalu University, a 100-acre campus in Orissa and has authored multiple best-selling books, including his recently published through Amazon, “Spiritual Secrets from Hinduism.”

Ten staff members of AdventHealth brought mannequins to provide Hands-Only CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) training to Gujarati Samaj of Tampa Bay on Senior Day June 5. They also offered advice on rescue breathing by Ambu bag (artificial manual breathing unit).
Life-threatening emergencies take place at home or workplace anytime of the day. During cardiac arrest, a person stops breathing. Each year, half a million people suffer cardiac arrests and CPR can double or triple the chance of survival when bystanders act.

GSTB seniors meet the first Wednesday of each month from 10.30 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. at ICC, 5511 Lynn Road, Tampa. For information, call Mahesh Modha at (813) 476-1540.



In this digital age, it bears no repetition that newspapers are a dying breed. A report by Northwestern University reveals that two newspapers are folded every week. As we steadily march toward our 19-year anniversary (printing monthly since August 2004 without skipping an issue), here are some thoughts for our readers.
