Swami Chandrashekharananda, Minister of Vedanta Society of Portland, Oregon, visited the Vedanta Center of St. Petersburg the weekend of October 28-30, 2017. Swami was welcomed with a reception on Saturday evening, the 28th at the Panton House. He related stories about the different centers he had been posted to and the senior Swamis he worked with.

Swami gave a talk in the Chapel on Sunday, the 29th on “The Divine Mother is Our Only Refuge”. He began the lecture by stating that Mother pervades everything and he was talking to the audience as manifestations of the Divine Mother. Please go to the video to see the complete lecture. 

Swami was able to visit some local parks in St. Petersburg, along with a picnic lunch Monday, the 30th at Ft. Desoto Park. This was his first visit to St. Petersburg and we hope to see him back here again soon.
