    Swami Veda Bharati Takes his Mahasamadhi

    by Dr. David Frawley

    Swami Veda Bharati took his Mahasamadhi July 14 at his ashram in Rishikesh, India.

    Swami Veda was the literal voice of the Vedas and embodied the teachings and inspiration of the Vedic Rishis. Carrying the Vedic knowledge from childhood, he could produce new Vedic mantras much like the seers of old, holding in himself the Rishi Vak Shakti or mantric power of the seers.

    Swamiji was also the world’s greatest authority on the Yoga Sutras, from both his own vast yogic experience and the deepest level of Sanskrit training in the most profound traditional commentaries. His work on the Yoga Sutras is extensive, authentic and authoritative and should be studied by all serious Yoga students and teachers.

    Swamiji had a power of mind and prana that had long transcended the physical body. He had long suffered from various health impairments and was keeping his body alive by the power of prana alone. No doubt he has moved on to higher lokas where he can communicate the teachings directly through the power of mind alone. He is available on these exalted levels for his students and devotees now and for the future.

    We were blessed to know and be connected with Swami Veda for many years and to share the teachings at his ashram in Rishikesh.

    We all will miss Swami Veda’s physical presence but will continue to share his profound satsangs in the realm of the mind.

    We are all children of the Rishis and Swami Veda is able to awaken that Rishi consciousness within all.
