“On this auspicious day of 14th July 2015, our beloved Swami Veda Bharati passed from his body at 3 am (India time). Please keep his intention in your mind – ‘Let every person feel loved.’"
— Swami Ritavan Bharati, Ashrama Pramukha
In this Special Edition, we would like to share with you photos and words regarding this passing and observances at Swami Rama Sadhaka
Grama (SRSG) and Haridwar. Because of the desire to know of these things, we are hastily publishing this Special Edition. We hope to receive more articles for a future edition about these. The regular newsletter (at end of month) might be deferred until next month or might still come out at the end of the month.
If you are have trouble getting to the articles in this newsletter, move your cursor to the table of contents; there is a dropdown menu that leads you to the list of articles, and you click on an article. Here is the link to the first article, from there you can go through the whole newsletter by using the "Next Article" link at each article: https://www.ahymsin.org/docs2/News/1507Svb/00.html
By practicing what Swami Veda has taught we honor him. The Tradition is a living tradition. Practice is every moment of your life. May the passing of the physical body used by Swami Veda inspire you to greater understanding and realization.
