Br. Ramanand on “Understanding Fear” at Yale University

As part of the AYUDH Americas University Series, the Yale University chapter hosted a talk by Brahmachari Ramanandji on “Understanding Fear” on Thursday, March 2nd, 2017.  The event brought together a diverse group of students and community members from all stages of life, uniting them in a powerful type of intercultural exchange based on discussing some of the most fundamental, common experiences in being human.  The evening began with a clip on Embracing the World, a short introduction to the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda, and a discussion of some of the AYUDH initiatives to take on these sustainability goals.  Br. Ramanandji then spoke on the topic of fear and how to manage it, followed by a question and answer session and discussion.  The event concluded with a feast of both Indian and western food in the adjacent room.  The event was generously sponsored by the Yale University Asian American Cultural Center, the Yale University Graduate and Professional Student Senate, and the Yale University Office of the Secretary and Vice President for Student Life’s the Wellness Project grant for a Compassion-in-Action series.  The event was live-streamed to many campuses and cities across the country and can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDtK-LtoKMg.
