2019 Sangha Gathering and Preparations

by Swami Ritavan Bharati

When we look to the future, we see the opportunities for change, for growth, for embracing a loving heart and a smiling mind. During these 40 days of spiritual peace, we deepen our commitment and accept our practices as discovery - a tapas of peace. We deepen our relationship with the source of inner light and knowledge through remembering our spiritual heritage, our guides, our inspirations of the past reborn in this deep innate desire for freedom, self-understanding and joy.

As the 40 days lead us to Guru Purnima, and to our upcoming Sangha gathering, we reflect, review, and preview these themes of living a spiritually fulfilling life. Living with the sense of sustainability, with a sense of understanding Mother Earth’s ability to produce and humanity to recognize the nature urge of living in harmony and understanding. We re-commit ourselves through our three themes of ahimsa, aparigraha, and ishwara-pranidhana. With an intention of restraint and understanding, humans can rise above the desires of wanting and taking. The destiny of humanity is to live with awareness and in harmony with nature, living in peaceful co-existence with all and thereby creating a beautiful future here and now.

Book cover: The Perenial in the Millennium

We are honoring Swami Veda contribution through a beautiful little booklet that he created for the United Nations and also for the Parliament of World Religions. Nearly 20 years ago, he shared his revelation in “The Perennial in the Millennium”. These sentiments are as important now as they were then, and will be, in the next decades to come.

He presented us with a How-To manual to create a beautiful future, a peaceful future, not only for oneself but for one’s family, community, and abundance for the whole world. In this booklet, he has given us tools for insight and guidance of humanity if they so choose.

Oil lamps with message "Love Serve Remember"

In our sangha gathering, members of the world organization, the AHYMSIN organization will honor the Tradition with the dictum of Swami Rama: Love, Serve and Remember, and take steps to apply the vision that Swami Veda left with us to inspire our spiritual-live for future generations.
