Where Eagles Dare

Where Eagles Dare was the most profound and spiritually intense camp yet because Swamiji took us through chapter 2 of the Taittiriya Upanishad, the subject of which is Brahma Vidya: knowledge that I am the Totality.

Here, 130 CHYKs realised that the guru does not teach only through words and that Self Knowledge is knowledge like no other. Self Knowledge is that which destroys ignorance of who we are and by being with Swamiji and becoming tuned with him, our minds became open and awakened. Like every other camp, there were thrilling activities (including a night-walk) and inspiring performances but in 2011, the real journey was within ourselves. For many of us, this camp (and the magical trip to Sidhabari afterwards) brought the first real experience of stillness & peace in the depths of contemplation.
