Swami Mukundanandaji had conducted a session titled, Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind, for the employees of GMR Group. Employees from across locations including top leadership were present. During this session, Swamiji introduced methods to unleash the mind’s infinite potential and ways to channel thoughts. While beautifully blending scientific theories and real life narratives, Swamiji shared high impact tools to reprogram the subconscious mind, to befriend it, and make it a helpful partner in the pursuit of success, happiness, and life fulfilment. The practical techniques shared were especially meaningful for busy corporate executives who could easily comprehend and with practice fulfil one’s potential.

On behalf of Gurugram Branch of NIRC of ICAI and Fellow Chartered Accountants, I would like to express my gratitude to Swamiji and JKYog for conducting an insightful session on stress management for the chartered accountants in Gurugram. It was an eye-opener to realize that the real source of stress comes from our own expectations and the Bhagavad Gita had a simple solution for the same. Swamiji presented invaluable techniques for coping with difficult situations at the workplace. He shared valuable wisdom from Gita in a modern context.
The session evoked an overwhelming response from participants and questions poured forth. Clarifying them with easy, workable solutions, Swamiji educated us with much needed life skills to tackle modern-day professional and personal demands with strength and grace.

Knowledge doesn’t have a start or an end but it always finds the medium to travel to different locations and spread the awareness. Our Swamiji is one among such divine mediums to shower the pearls of knowledge to this world. We also got this opportunity to listen to his inspiration session in our organization wherein he spent a few hours with us on a Leadership Training. His words were not just inspirational but the most simple one to relate to. To convey the knowledge to the people in a way they understand and could practice, is one of the biggest strengths of Swamiji.

At its Diamond Jubilee celebrations, IITD VSC (NRCVEE) was proud to invite the inspiring, world-renowned alumnus of IIT Delhi – Swami Mukundananda ji, where he graced us with his valuable time and knowledge on The Science of Mind Management.
Bathing in the pursuit of scientific knowledge for years, it was an amazing revelation for both the faculty and students to hear from Swamiji the physiological differences between the brain and the mind and how the thoughts generated by our mind become the seeds of all actions in our life. Delineating the biology of the human brain to endure austerities for choosing higher endeavours, his illumination on the uniqueness and exclusivity of human intellect was mind-blowing.
Realizing how our own mind can become the biggest impediment as compared to any external obstacle, Swamiji encouraged all of us to tend the garden of our mind for attaining success in any sphere of life.
The mix of scientific theories, experiments and vedic knowledge presented by Swamiji was astounding. The engaging Q&A further uplifted the spirits of the audience as they ascertained to Swamiji’s words on the mind being the key to become the best version of one’s ownself! I personally feel proud as I serve the same department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Delhi where Swamiji studied. I was so inspired from his lecture that I ended up buying his book on the same topic after his lecture. Being an engineer with MBA his explanations in the book are very logical and convincing. I wish to continue my interactions with him and I hope he will come to his alma mater again and again to help its students to enhance their spiritual knowledge.

The Corporate Relations Committee of Sydenham Institute of Management Studies, Research, and Entrepreneurship Education (SIMSREE) hosted Swami Mukundananda Ji for the Speaker Series session for the junior cohort of Master of Management Studies, 2021-23. Swami Mukundananda Ji spoke about the value of spiritual journeys and how mind control is the key to happiness and prosperity. His examples of effective leaders highlighted the necessity of empowering intellect. The event helped students gain a different perspective on their MBA journey by addressing each student's individuality, inherent talents, and obstacles.
Swami Mukundananda Ji's keynote address to our students was phenomenal! The audience was very appreciative of the informative content and was very inspired by Swamiji’s engaging and dynamic speaking style. Everyone benefited from the real-life, useful takeaways that they could implement into their own work-life right away.
On behalf of the entire Institute, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for providing such a strong keynote presentation to the Master of Management Studies batch of 2021-23. Swami Ji's insights and enthusiasm gave the audience great ways to effectively lead by example. Both our senior, more tenured members and our more junior folks were inspired to do great things. With that being said, we look forth to more such engagements.

On behalf of Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, Bhopal, I would like to express my gratitude to Swami Mukundanandaji for an extremely insightful session on "Scientific Perspective on the Bhagavad Gita". This program was conducted as part of the eminent initiative of Govt. of India - "Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav" to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of glorious independence.
Swamiji beautifully synthesized the significance of both Science and Spirituality to lead a life in contemporary times. While there are many institutions disseminating scientific knowledge, Swamiji is an unparalleled authority for spiritual knowledge.
Our entire network of staff and students feel immensely benefitted hearing the highest knowledge and the most profound secrets from the holy Bhagavad Gita. Swamiji has truly empowered us with everlasting wisdom to shape our life with the right choices and decisions on a daily basis.

The Value-Education wing of the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, expresses their deep gratitude to Swami Mukundanandaji for a highly inspirational and insightful session on “Reprogramming the Software of the Mind”.
Swamiji’s illustrious examples helped in effortlessly assimilating such profound concepts. He picturesquely portrayed how our own beliefs rule our intellect, dictate the formation of habits, and eventually determine our destiny with everyday choices.
In a world of overwhelming changes, such skills to manage our minds hold paramount importance for success in life, and we couldn’t have found a better mentor than Swamiji!

It was indeed our great honour to have you respected Swami Mukundanandaji as the only Keynote Speaker at the Rotary Webinar on Peace on 23rd February 2022 to commemorate the 117th Birthday Anniversary of Rotary International which is also observed as the World Peace & Understanding Day. This mega event was organised by the Rotary Calcutta Dhakuria in association with 9 other Rotary Clubs from 4 Neighbouring Nations & ofcourse Rotaract & Interact our youth wings. Your enthralling oration on Inner Peace mesmerised the entire audience of over 400 Rotarians from 14 different Nations across the world.
In this internet era, knowledge remains at everyone’s disposal, yet most of us do not know how to put it to practice and hence peace of mind seems increasingly far-fetched. Listening to your insights nurtured and motivated all of us to become a better human being and determine our happiness. Your magic formula explicated in distinct steps were completely aligned with 117 year old Rotary's motto of “Service Above Self” & the current Rotary International theme for the year "Serve to Change Lives". The entire house from diverse faiths, colour, languages and professional backgrounds felt collectively empowered with a seamless passion for humanitarian service. We offer our humble salutations amidst deepest gratitude to you for enriching the lives of Rotarians & their families across the world with your gracious virtual presence and your magical life changing words of wisdom.
