In the September 2015 AHYMSIN newsletter, we had Interview with Swami Ritavan Bharati, and we are happy to have "Interview with Swami Ritavan Bharati, part 2"in this edition.

Himalayan Yoga Meditation Association, Ludhiana, participated in the Can Fight Cancer 3rd walkathon for cancer awareness in Ludhiana, India, on 7th November, and worked in association with the Can Fight Cancer Society to invite people to participate.
