ISKCON’s annual “MAN-tra Retreat” is coming to your computer screen in mid-November. The theme of this year’s virtual event is The Hero’s Journey!
Men, 18 years of age and older, are invited to transform their lives by participating in this unique event. You are the hero and your journey is distinct and extraordinary. The Lord Himself encourages us to return home, back to Godhead. From Lord Rama to Srila Prabhupada, the story of life follows a set pattern. Learning about this pattern helps us understand ourselves and reveals the steps needed for transformation.
The Hero’s Journey will be nothing short of spectacular. The journey is not easy and obtaining love of God, the most treasured gift is difficult. Shedding our dark habits and returning to the light requires us to face our deepest fears and close the gap between our shortcomings and reunion with God.
