It was the way the teachers taught: lots of group work and interactive learning, using music, art, and drama. At nineteen, I was the youngest student, and I was afraid to speak in front of so many senior devotees. But they encouraged me and gave me confidence that I could realize the truth of the Bhagavad-gita. I read it all the way through for the first time.
The MI Bhakti-sastri Course pacified my heart and gave my studies and career goals a transcendent purpose – to please Krishna. I owe a lot to my facilitators.
