Dear friends on the spiritual path,
this morning we received the following UPDATE from Swami Veda's
disciple Pandit Ananta, with the latest news from the GURUKULAM and
As March first roles in here in Rishikesh, we still have the cool
temps and rainy skies which we hope will soon subside.
The Teachers Training Retreat went wonderful, with people from 10
nations and a large Korean group.
Now we are into the next phase, the silence retreats. We have 30
people involved all the way from 3 days to 90 days.
The silent atmosphere along with the fire offerings bring of
celestial mood to the entire campus.
This along with 40 gurukulam students makes for a busy time in the 24
hour flow with classes, workshops and Swami Veda's talks on the Yoga
Sutras and Bhagavad Gita.
Much construction is also underway with the 30 new sadhaka cabins now
appearing almost overnight.
