Two Books Now Back in Print:

Book Cover - Enlightenment Without GodEnlightenment without God by Swami Rama.  "When one understands the teachings of the Upanishads, then one realizes that life itself is a sort of worship that can shine on the altar of infinity... This can be done when people determine to enlighten themselves, and enlightenment is possible here and now without the help of the word of God." – Swami Rama in Chapter 1, "Awakening”.

Book Cover - Live Here and HeareafterLife Here and Hereafter by Swami Rama. Swami Rama's commentary on the dialogue between Nachiketa and Yama, King of Death, in the Kathopanishad.

The Chair Yogi's Created by Rob Diggins: "The Chair Yogi's practice yoga through the guidance of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition. The Himalayan Yoga Tradition practices utilized by this group include Mindfulness, Breath Awareness and Joints & Glands Exercises as taught by Sri Swami Rama and adapted for those that must practice while sitting. It is hoped that others, perhaps those who must spend a great deal of time in a chair, wheelchair, or bed, will be able to view these videos and practice regularly, along with this group! May your practices truly benefit all beings!"  Please see:  http://vimeo.com/groups/271537

Yoga Sutras Study:  Randall Krause invites you to join a Yoga Sutras study group: "For nearly a year, I've been leading two study groups on the Yoga Sutras, one in India, and one with people scattered over Europe. The Europe group is just starting chapter 2, the Sadhana Pada, of the sutras, and this would be a great time for more people to enter the group. The timing of the group would allow people to join from North America too... We meet approximately every two weeks on skype, voice-only. If people are interested in joining the group, they can contact me, at randallcoach@gmail.com and I'll get in touch with them. This project was approved by Swami Ritavan last year when it began." Randall is registered as an experienced yoga instructor (E-RYT500) with Yoga Alliance, is a member of the faculty and senior mentor of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition Teacher Training Program (HYT-TTP), is director at Himalayan Yoga Meditation—Los Angeles (Hym-la) and is webmaster at www.bindu.org

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 ahymsin@ahymsin.org
