Karna: victim-come-victimizer (Facilitated by Chaitanya Charan das)

In this one off session we will be diving deep into the psyche of one of the most infamous, controversial yet popular characters in the Mahabharata, Karna. Love him or hate him, certainly we can learn a lot from him. This astounding seminar will explore an important aspect of Karna’s psychological makeup: vengeance.


When we look into the background of many of history’s villains, a common pattern often emerges: hurt people, hurt people. In the Mahabharata we see how Karna the victim, soon went on to become a victimizer himself. Why this cycle occurs within the lives of many, including our own, and the secret for breaking out of it will be exposed.


An astounding seminar conducted by one of the world’s foremost speakers on Vedic philosophy Chaitanya Charan (see below), dissecting one of the most infamous and misunderstood figures in Vedic history. This is truely an event not to be missed, we cannot stress it enough.
