1) Main content/topic for the discourse and additional info on discourse / preaching.
The main content/ Topic of the discourses would be to explain the advantage and the real significance of meditation in today’s fast paced lifestyle. Through his Discourses he explains how meditation is an exercise to the mind and how can it be leveraged to achieve peace, accurate decision making ability, stability, containment and many other much desired virtues and attributes. He wants to expose people to some simple yet very powerful and many a times ignored techniques of meditation. He also provides a scientific perception towards some of the most misunderstood concepts enforced and practiced by the Hindu religion. When he does so he is addressing the mass as the Supreme authority of Hindu religion '"Dharmaguru" bestowed on him by "The Akhil Bhartiya Parishad" and so he is very commonly identified as Jagadguru Ramanandacharya Sri Swami Narendracharyaji Maharaj all across India. His birthplace "Nanij" near Ratnagiri is crowned a one of the only four peeth's hosting the Vaishnavas since Oct 21st 2005.
The key remarkable attribute of his holiness is through his discourses; he relates to today’s scientifically common person and tries to promote meditation through common means understanding the social and cultural boundaries of people all over the world.
