“You should practice and do your meditation at the same time every day. Regularity in time is very important. A habit is a pattern that is formed.” – Swami Rama in Path of Fire and Light: Advanced Practices of Yoga, Volume 2, Chapter “First Steps in Self Transformation.”

November 13 will be the anniversary of the Mahasamadhi of Swami Rama. There will be events in association with this. Contact [email protected].

“We spoke of the universal rhythms; those universal waves do not return only once a year on a specific sacred day. For you, they may return each day. Each day become the recipient of a wave. If the wave knows, if the wave of grace knows where to find you, at what hour to find you, and you are there to keep that appointment, over a period of time, you will begin to feel a response arising within you. Receive the wave. That will elevate you, uplift you, guide you, purify you.” – Swami Veda Bharati, “On the First Maha-samadhi Anniversary of H.H. Swami Rama”
