On Wednesday, July 12th, 2016 Radhanath Swami attended a “The Journey Within” book signing event that was held at the Golden Bridge Yoga studio located in Santa Monica, CA. The founders of this studio- Gurmukh and her daughter Wahe invited Maharaj for an evening featuring kirtan and a talk. The studio has a wide clientele of people from all spheres of life and was crowded with 75 guests including the soul kirtan artist, C.C. White.
A beautiful soft kirtan was led before Radhanath Swami’s arrival. In his talk he recounted stories illustrating the basic tenets of Bhakti-yoga and about his own personal experiences in relation to simple principles for balancing our lives. He simplified spiritual teachings in a heartfelt way that captured everyone’s heart in the gathering. After the talk Maharaj led a resounding kirtan that got everyone on their feet. The books were then purchased by the guests which Maharaj graciously signed. Several guests purchased several copies of the book for their friends and family and had profound conversations with him. The evening ended with many new people interested in yoga coming forward expressing a newfound interest in Radhanath Swami and the teachings of Bhakti-yoga.
