Fascinating

Having known of Dr Svoboda through my interest in Ayurveda over long years, and his place as a revered and very knowledgeable pundit on the topic, I find it fascinating to learn of his beginnings. I see that he was precocious, open, curious, perceptive and determined even as a young man. It takes something to weather new landscapes, cultures and systems to quench one's thirst for learning or to follow one's heart. I myself am from India & Mumbai, but in Dr Svoboda I see somebody more well-versed in all things India. I take away many inspiring and life affirming nuggets whenever I listen to Dr Svoboda. Much gratitude and awe _()_

Dream Come True

Dr. Svoboda’s teachings share the wisdom of his mentor, Vimalananda, interpreted through an understanding of the world as we live it now. His vast knowledge of science brings the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda, karma, Bhakti, and prana home to us and offers us ways to navigate through a life of cell phones, COVID-19, social media, and constant sensory input. So very happy to be able to access Dr. Robert’s words this way! Jai!
