Activities at the Himalayan Yoga Center Pune

30 March 2013

Dr. Sanjay Shastri from Canada was visiting Pune, India, and we promptly took the opportunity for him to give us a lecture on “The Role of Meditation in Our Daily Life.” Dr. Sanjay Shastri has a PhD in Sanskrit besides being a Pandit, and he assists Swamiji in writing his treatises on the Yoga Sutras.

It was a privilege to have him and an audience of nearly 50 listened to him attentively. Of these, there were 10 mothers to be and one little one 2 months old with parents who had attended the meditation classes sincerely during her pregnancy.

The next day at 7 am 7 members did the Joints and Glands, Pranayama and Meditation as taught in our tradition.

When the 3 day course was conducted in September 12, one of the members had suggested that quarterly we should have a refresher course and not allow the momentum generated to die down. Well, the Guru has seen to it that we have received faculty whom we did not have to personally sponsor. In December, we had Savitriji and now Dr. Shastri. And you know what? In June Swami Prashant is visiting!
Jai Gurudev!
