Workshop Description:


Day in and day out we go through existential crisis

If people suffer due to bad karma, why are some children born with cancer?  What have they done?

We do not remember our past sins in our past births, how do we believe that what we reap today is the result of what we did earlier?

Why should we follow the path of dharma and end up looking like fools when people who silence their conscience and manipulate truth get ahead in life?

How do we answer people who say your Krishna also did tricks to save Pandavas and did not follow the rules in the war?

Didn’t Draupadi invite trouble by laughing at Duryodhan and was not Dhrisdharashtra justified in feeling victimised?

To find answers to atleast a few of the plaguing questions, watch the above video now.
