Swami Veda received birthday wishes this month, including this video from AHYMSIN Thailand: facebook video The mantra that Swamiji is reciting in the video is the Maha-mṛtyunjaya Mantra.

Swamiji writes

“…my prayer remains that with my actions I justify the privilege of having been given a human body for the service of many.”

Maryon Maass will be leaving her position in the HYT-TTP Office at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama and returning to California.
