Matriprasad (now Swami Mangalananda Giri), a long-time resident of our
ashram, flew from Los Angeles, his destination: India. This truly was a
life-changing day for him.
On September 25 we received a letter from him giving an account of the
beginnings of his spiritual pilgirmage-adventure. Since then we have
gotten more than three hundred pages recounting the struggles,
blessings, and reflections of a pilgrim in India. Through them we have

inspiration. We value them highly as a consequence, and feel that you
will find them well worth the reading.
More letters will be added as the site grows.
