"In a recent speech to the United Nations India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggested starting an International Yoga Day. India officially gave the proposal. 175 countries supported it. 21st June every year has been declared by United Nations as International Yoga Day. All our initiators, teachers, centres should plan something each year." – Swami Veda Bharati

The 2014 Yoga Youth and Children’s Retreat is just finishing at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG). Swami Veda has written that the “ashram is full. The children for the children’s retreat are fun.” We hope to have an article and photos for the next edition.

From Himalayan Yoga Publications Trust (formerly known as SRSG Publications and later AHYMSIN Publishers): “We are pleased to announce that the new E-commerce website www.yogapublications.org is now live. The online purchase of Swami Rama's & Swami Veda Bharati's books, CD's will be available on the same along with the option to subscribe to the monthly newsletter.

Thank you for a great 2014, and we hope to hear from you in 2015 with your suggestions, feedback, and articles from your centers and your personal experiences. We are all one "Sangha" (spiritual family).


Sikkim Adventure

Join Swami Ma Radha and other sadhakas for a pilgrimage to Sikkim April 5-11, 2015. Don't miss this opportunity to visit sacred Buddhist sites high in the Himalayas and a chance for discussions and meditations with Swami Ma Radha and other Kalyana Mitras! Registration is open and a discount is available for early registrants (before Jan. 29, 2015). We hope you will be part of this special adventure! You may contact loriberon@gmail.com or see Sikkim Adventure Registration for more information. More about Sikkim (a northeast state in India) here.

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
