Dear AHYMSIN Family,
This letter is to inform you with deep regret that the Acharya and senior faculty of the teacher training program of AHYMSIN, have decided that Vishnu Panigrahi
1. Does not possess sufficient adhikara to teach as a fully qualified teacher in the name of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, as it is transmitted through Swami Rama of the Himalayas and Swami Veda Bharati; thus, he should not be sponsored under the auspices of our affiliated centers in any country.
2. Has always been considered a student-in-training and for disciplinary reasons, we felt it necessary to make it clear that he is not a trained teacher and does not represent the Tradition.
Please address any questions to the senior teaching faculty: Swami Ritavan Bharati, Dr. Stephen Parker (Stoma), Swami Nityamuktananda Saraswati, Swami Ma Radha Bharati, Peter Fabian, and Ashutosh Sharma.
We have been deeply saddened by the need to take this disciplinary action in asking him to leave the ashram Sadhaka Grama.
Swami Ritavan Bharati
Stephen Parker (Stoma)
Swami Ma Radha
With the tears and blessings of Swami Veda Bharati
