URU and You are Free!

Svatantrya is Ultimate Freedom. July 2017 Svatantrya In Sanskrit the word Svantantrya means ultimate freedom. It is the remembrance and gratitude for our independence, free will, and free choice. It is also the realization that we must use this freedom and choice to live a life of meaning for ourselves and for all beings. Svatantrya is the unbounded freedom that comes from standing firmly on your path. Ultimately, Svantantrya is the freedom to be who you are and the freedom that you experience from living your deepest truth.
