Dear Members of the Ahymsin Sangha,
The Sangha Gathering for 2016 will take place during 21 – 26 of February 2016 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG)!
We will gather to honor Swami Veda, to offer and demonstrate our gratitude, to move forward with our sadhana, and to nurture one another as kalyana mitras. Swamiji laid down the theme for the Gathering to be: “Can I have Samadhi?” This will remain the theme.
Swami Ritavan Bharati, the Ashram Pramukh, and other senior teachers will be present. There will be talks, group discussions, sharing, updates, prayers, hatha, pranayama, seated meditation times, elections for the Ahymsin Executive Committee, etc.
The proposed schedule will start the morning of the 21st and will end the evening of the 26th. We are requesting that you stay on campus during the entire event and attend each session.
“On this auspicious day of 14th July 2015, our beloved Swami Veda Bharati passed from his body at 3 am (India time). Please keep his intention in your mind – ‘Let every person feel loved.’"
— Swami Ritavan Bharati, Ashrama Pramukha
In this Special Edition, we would like to share with you photos and words regarding this passing, the Shraad, and the funeral rites at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) and Haridwar. Because of the desire to know of these things, we are hastily publishing this Special Edition. We hope to receive more articles for a future edition about these. The regular newsletter (at end of month) might be deferred until next month or might still come out at the end of the month.
Our beloved Spiritual Guide Swami Veda Bharati passed from his body on 14th July 2015. Please see below three important messages.
Dear Family Members,
The AHYMSIN family will continue to receive guidance that flows from the Sages in Himalayan Tradition.
Dear AHYMSIN Family,
On this auspicious day of Monday 14th July 2015, our beloved Swami Veda Bharati passed from his body at 3 am (India time). Please keep his intention in your mind - "Let every person feel loved."
Special prayers of Gayatri mantra and/or Akhanda-mandala-karam...can now be offered on his behalf for this saintly intention while keeping a deepak/candle-flame lit.
Further details on the funeral arrangements in India and the 14-day shrad observation will be given later. Individual Centers will also be given instruction on sadhaka-japa for our beloved saint and teacher whose life was truly an example of his bodhisattva vow.
In loving service,
Swami Ritavan Bharati, Ashram Pramukh
on behalf of Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, AHYMSIN and Dhyana Mandiram Trust
