We are members in the spiritual body of the Gurus. Their life-force, their grace flows through us. Our own minds grow in this grace only when we remember that in all our work we are serving as members, as organs, of that Spirit. - Swami Veda Bharati
As constituents of this Sangha, this body of the Guru, we aspire to come together regularly for the pursuit of our spiritual goals, to take stock of our progress, as well as chart the way ahead to prepare ourselves for a deeper commitment to our sadhana, and to the Mission.
Swami Ritavan Bharati extends his personal invitation to all members of the Guru family to gather at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama between February 25 - March 5, 2019, to immerse ourselves into the triad of ‘Love, Serve, Remember’ which Swami Rama enjoined and the principles given to us by our beloved Swami Veda through his writing on “Perennial in the Millennium”.
There will be special lectures, group discussions, and workshops, on “Love, Serve, Remember, Perennial in the Millennium, and Unifying Streams in Religion”. There will be advanced classes on Hatha yoga, Pranayama, Contemplative Walking, and Guided Meditations led by Swami Ritavan and other senior teachers during the gathering.
Swami Ritavan will guide the AHYMSIN Sangha into the next set of practices for the next 3 years, in preparation for the 2022 Kumbha Mela.
We would also have the AHYMSIN executive committee elections at the same time.
The 9-day Sangha Gathering will be shared in the following manner:
• February 25 - 27, 2019: The theme of Love
• February 28 - March 2, 2019: The theme of Serve
• March 3 - 5, 2019: The theme of Remember. March 4 is also the Mahashivaratri and there will be all-night celebrations on that day.
We also take this opportunity to express our encouragement to participants who would like to arrive a couple of days prior to, and/or to stay beyond, the gathering to deepen their practice. There will also be special parallel workshops on Dance of Transformation, and Self-Regulation and Biofeedback from March 6 - 9, 2019.
We look forward to the pleasure of your divine presence at the gathering.
In service of the Guru Lineage,
AHYMSIN Office, Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama

Swami Ritavan has written in the Guru Purnima Letter, "Please again read through the daily inspirations for the 40-day Spiritual Festival of Peace and choose your top 10; then select the three that you will commit to practice for the next six months. At that time (February 2019), we will gather for our special AHYMSIN Sangha in Rishikesh, with prayer and contemplation to discover and apply the steps of Spiritual Peace, within, and for our global family."
