Equipping college students with the tools for success in life is more than mastering sciences and engineering. To add the missing ingredients, New Horizon College of Engineering in Bangalore is exposing students to another important technology. On February 19th, 2019, the university hosted well known Bollywood actor Boman Irani together with Swami Mukundananda, an international authority on mind management. With the goal of inspiring and empowering youth for success in life, they both talked about attaining happiness.
Irani shared his life experiences and how his mindset shaped his future. “Happiness just doesn’t happen to you by accident or a stroke of luck. It is a choice that will make or break your future. This is why I feel it is important to have serious public discussion about it, especially with our youth.” Both renowned personalities encouraged students to take the #HappinessChallenge, a 21-day free online introspective program challenging the students to take their happiness to the next level. According to Swamiji, the challenge has rapidly spread world-wide from schools, corporations, health professionals and institutions and individuals and families in numerous countries and continents. Thousands of people continue to sign up for #HappinessChallenge around the world.
Swami Mukundananda began the Bangalore programme by outlining a simple step by step approach to achieve success and happiness. “The mind plays a powerful role in our destiny and can help us achieve to our maximum potential. Having the right tools to manage the mind is key to success”, he explained.
