Shivarathri Venues in Mumbai- 28th February, 2014
Sessions at Sathyadeep - Dharmakshetra on 16th February, 2014
An audience of 32 youth and elders attended the 3 hour seminar on
Financial Planning at the IT centre, Dharmakshetra on 2nd Feb
conducted by Shri. Mukund Sheshadri. The participants experienced
a variety of emotions during the seminar - laughter, amazement,
concern, introspection etc. One would hardly expect these in a
seminar where the topic is as dry as a desert - Finance. The sheer
brilliance of the presenter, his knowledge, the style of
presentation and most importantly linking Swami's words and Seva
to Personal Finance made this possible.
Starting from a self evaluation questionnaire filled by all
participants, to defining Financial Planning, Steps on how to do
and trying to simplify the Finance World it was a thoroughly hands
on seminar with a very active involvement of the participants. The
concept of identifying and putting Needs over Desires, Having a
Ceiling on Desires, Understanding how our lifestyle contributes to
the rampant Inflation that we face were used very effectively to
underscore the importance of Effective management of one's own
Shri. Mukund used Swami's quote of Start Early, Drive Slowly and
Reach Safety to emphasisze the need to start financial planning at
a young age, take investment decisions rationally and succeed in
reaching one's financial goals.
Shri. Mukund also made a very interesting observation on How doing
Seva more often than not grants financial balance and stability.
It was a thoroughly value adding session for the participants who
promised to implement these concepts in their lives.
The youth wing is deeply grateful to Shri. Mukund for imparting
this important knowledge in the first quarterly seminar series.
