“The next thousand years will be whatever you have chosen today to make of them. Uproot the thorn bushes now; plant the lilies instead and the time paths of your generations will be paved with soft fragrant petals, each petal an achievement from your labor at interior purifications.”
   — Swami Veda Bharati


In the article “On the 2019 Sangha Gathering” in this newsletter, Swami Ritavan Bharati brings to our mind “The Perennial in the Millennium” by Swami Veda and other elements in the path of yoga, and he also informs us about the 2019 Sangha Gathering, which is scheduled to take place 25th February - 5th March 2019 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) in Rishikesh, India. The article contains a link to the YouTube video “Interview with Swami Ritavan Bharati” and the transcript of what he says in the video.

In the article “Significance of Yajna,” Swami Veda mentions the concept of life as an offering [yajna].We would be interesting in hearing comments/observations from those who have embraced this idea on what it means to you and how it has impacted your life and practice.

Share Your News!

We invite you to share what is happening in their centers and your experiences, insights, and questions. With such sharing, we can learn more about one another and strengthen one another in our sadhana, becoming a true “sangha”. We welcome your articles. You can write to [email protected]

The next several full moon meditations happen within a day or so of the normal Ahymsin newsletter end of the month mailing. So, we will be sending a single combined mailing.
