August Newsletter

(We combine the newsletter and full moon mailings when they occur very close to each other - Ed.)

Next month's newsletter will feature interviews with Dr. Mohan Swami, DMT and AHYMSIN President, and with Swami Ritavan Bharati, Ashram Pramukh, in which they share the meaning of their roles and the tasks ahead. Please see the first article in this newsletter “Letter to AHYMSIN Family” as a prelude to those interviews.

Courtesy of Geeta Currimjee: In Mauritius we paid tribute to Swami Veda by offering a bhandara at an Old People's home. 100 people enjoyed dinner. This was on 29th July 2015, the date of Shodashi Bhandara honoring Swamiji at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama.

In addition to 15 articles in this month's newsletter here are some other writings you might like to read. (click on title)

You and your children are invited to attend the Yoga Youth and Children’s Retreat 22nd – 31st December 2015 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, “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 has said. A special time for you and your children to deepen your practice together! Write to childrensretreat@gmail.com to let the organizers know you are coming.

The Ludhiana, India, center also celebrated International Yoga Day. To see photos, please click on 1st International Yoga Day (21/06/2015).

In this edition, we are happy to have articles written by sangha members about Swami Veda. If any of you feel inspired to write about something you learned through Swami Veda’s presence in your life, your articles are welcome; please send them to ahymsin@ahymsin.org. We prefer to receive articles in a "Word" doc file format or as the body of an email with any pictures separate from the article, not embedded in it.

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
