The Ultimate I: Beyond the Confomity Game

Saturday, June 8, 2013 - 22:30 to Sunday, June 9, 2013 - 00:30

Join us for an evening with travelling monk of over 40 years, author and Yale graduate Devamrita Swami, as he stops in Toronto on his global circuit. Enjoy an enlivening discussion, musical meditation and delicious vegan feast

Ever thought your life was meant for something special? The mantra seems to be – do what feels right to you. Chase your dreams and expand your circle of influence in the world. But a deeper look at the actual activities of life will reveal a surprisingly constricted variety of activities – How can I be different? How can my soul leap out and meet its Ultimate potential. When can I stop living a cookie cutter lifestyle and meet the Ultimate I? Within or without, where do I look for the self?

Interested in stepping out of the shadow, then go beyond the conformity game and come explore reality with travelling Monk of over 40 years, Devamrita Swami.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
