Dear Spiritual Family,
Since 2011, and each year since 2014, we have gotten together to celebrate the Holi(y)days with the youngest members of our family. This year, too, we are hoping to get together during the sacred and joyous time of Christmas and New Year, and looking forward to filling the ashram with children, whom our beloved Swami Veda Bharati loved so deeply, so profoundly. Swami Ritavan Bharati extends his own loving invitation to everyone in the family to get together, “So that the grace and the practices and teachings of meditation in our lineage may continue into next generations and meditation may become a family-centered experience”, as Swami Veda Bharati put it.
We look forward to the children getting here, enjoying their time at their spiritual home, and learning the basics of yoga and meditation. Children participate in various activities including cultural programs, outdoor games, art and craft, and nature walks; while making new friends, from around the world! Special sessions for parents on bringing spirituality in family life are also organized.
We look forward to your confirmation, and your eventual arrival. We hope to hear back soon, so we may be able to plan ahead.
In loving service,
Tarinee & Divya
On behalf of Veda Youth
