Transitions and Speaking in Silence

1st – 22nd July 2012 Conference

Please join Swami Veda Bharati in Minneapolis 2012.  This will be Swami Veda's only US public appearance in 2012 and his last "Speaking/Silence" series in North America before he enters a 5-7 year vow of silence in March 2013 in Rishikesh.

He has much to share in preparing and transitioning students to receive the teachings internally through the Grace of the Lineage.
