The camp came as a shock, but a pleasant one!

Priyanka at 26th Advait Learning Camp

Hi, I am priyanka. I came to know about PAF through Youtube.

There were a lot of questions in my mind. I was very much entangled in my problems. Was seeking some answers, some solutions that could help me. Then I saw Acharya Ji’s videos and somehow it resonated with me and I felt very much drawn towards the solutions given by him.

They seem to be very real, very practical!

I was pleasantly surprised to know that his sessions are held in Delhi. After watching a lot of videos and attending a few sessions of Acharya Ji, it’s been very therapeutic for me because what is said in the videos and in the sessions is related to our daily lives and is so clear. All complexities seemed to dissolve here. The simplicity of Acharya Ji’s words and the way they were put forward were so wonderful that I was drawn towards it. But still as the doubts won’t leave you, after attending a few session, I am here at this camp!

At first, I was very skeptical that whether I should come or not. This whole structure of sessions and then the camp, has been a big shock to my system! I am so much used to ‘planning’ and ‘controlling’ things that what is going to happen next would really stress me out. Things do happen here but without any control. It was a very pleasant shock, though I am still getting used to it. It was a much needed jolt, I am glad that I got it!

Reflection 🙂

Experiences here have been very wonderful. I can try my best to articulate them but I don’t think that I would be able to do justice to them by doing so. At the core, things are very simple; but at the periphery, as when you get conditioned by your surrounding then it gets so much cemented. Even at the conceptual level, it’s not easy to undo it. Nonetheless, you have to start somewhere. If it’s taken so much time then I guess, for once, I will not say that it will take so much time for me to undo it. Let that just happen on it’s own.

The River and me! 🙂

So, it’s been a wonderful experience in this camp. It’s been really nice. It’s something I feel that the knots are untangling everyday, gradually. It’s a wonderful feeling and I can tell you how frustrated I was before, trying to figure out solutions to my problems and I was not getting any answers. So, being here is a very pleasant feeling. It may be not good for my mind which was really frustrated as this all came as a shock, but let me tell you, it was a pleasant one! 🙂

Editor’s note: Priyanka, a participant of 26th Advait Learning Camp, in the presence of Acharya Ji, was relieved of the false notions that she had in her head. The camp came to her as a shock, a pleasant one!
