Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.
Sometimes the story-telling which has most effect is that of first-hand experience. Swami Chinmayananda (Gurdev) never failed to leave an impression on those who came within sitting distance of him! It is the nature of such a Mahatma, that his presence is felt in his photographs and through connection with those who had the great good fortune to be physically in his company.
Swami Swaroopananda is head of Chinmaya International School but also head of the Australasia region of the mission and also of the UK. Here is a short video of Swami-ji talking about Gurudev and his own experience in the path of Vedanta (hopefully part 2 will be out for next week!)
