“May the inner guru find expression in your daily life, in your relationships, and in your duty to reveal your destiny.” – Swami Ritavan BharatiRainbow over SRSG July 2016

This July has been an especially important time at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG). On the 14th, the Anniversary of the Mahasamadhi of Swami Veda Bharati was commemorated with a large and auspicious event. This was followed by the celebrations of Guru Purnima, on the 19th. Many of the AHYMSIN global family who were able to be present during this time, gathered together in SRSG for the Guru Purnima Retreat; ten days of satsang and sadhana in remembrance of our one Guru, that consciousness-force which leads us from the darkness of avidya to the light of self-realization. We will publish further articles on these events, complete with pictures, in future editions of the newsletter.

To commemorate this special time, Himalayan Yoga Publications Trust (HYPT) has released several new books, including new titles as well as some existing titles translated into Hindi. For full details, see the article New Book Releases by John Sellinger. For further details, or to view or purchase online, please visit: yogapublications.org Contact: info@yogapublications.org
