“Let us all carry Swami Veda's divine love and blessings in our heart.” – Swami Ritavan Bharati.

The 1st Anniversary of Swami Veda Bharati’s Mahasamadhi will be 14th July 2016, and Swami Ritavan invites us to join in the celebration at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG).  Please see the article 1st Mahasamadhi Anniversary in this newsletter.

AHYMSIN Youth shares in the article AHYMSIN Youth a short video of Swami Veda talking about Yoga and Youth and expressing a wish he has. They also write about their desire to fulfill this wish and invite your participation. http://www.ahymsin.org/docs2/News/1606/04.html

Beautiful to see a babe in the arms of Swami Ritavan. “We have all been blessed so greatly, and there is much happiness in feeling this blessing flowing to the young ones amongst us," Swami Veda has said. Photo courtesy of Yu Sung.
