Bindu - Gateway to Himalayan Wisdom
In this website you’ll find:
The wisdom, philosophy, lifestyle and practices of the Himalayan Yoga Meditation Tradition;
A calendar listing opportunities to connect with teachers in the Himalayan Yoga Meditation Tradition;
News from the Tradition.
Once a person has received a mantra, where does s/he go from there? There need to be some structured guidelines that can be followed for many years and for life.
So, I send this invitation to you to become kalyana-mitras, friends on the noble path, to many initiates who need the guidance. After this forthcoming study, the initiates should be given the names of possible mentors, including yourself, to whom they can turn for advice.
So soon after the recent big event, many to whom I am writing may not be able to accept this invitation. That is understandable. If you can make it, you will see how important this step is in strengthening our spiritual family.
I will teach by computer screen. Members of the spiritual committee (swamis and initiators) will do the commentary and share their own experience.
Do suggest any other names to be included among the invitees, or send whatever number of delegates from your Centre.
The dates are 23rd November 2013 to 4th December 2013. However, I do not teach every day and there are, as you know, highly qualified helpers who will help me in this.
Do let us know your travel plans well in advance so that rooms can be booked.
Cost? (1) Whatever donation so that the Ashram can cover the cost of this hospitality (2) Cost of the bundle of readings and audio materials that will be ready in anticipation of your arrival (3) whatever dakshina offerings to help in Gurudeva's Mission.
Reminder: the Mauni Amavasya, annual day of silence, in 2014 is on 30th January and Shiva Night (Shivaratri) is on 28th February.
Love and blessings in service of Gurudeva
Swami Veda Bharati
During Swami Veda's talk on 9th March 2013 at the 2013 Sangha Gathering, Swamiji introduced our practice for "the next five years and the rest of your life."
A transcript of that talk can be found at this link: http://www.ahymsin.org/main/index.php/Swami-Veda-Bharati/practice-for-the-next-five-years-and-the-rest-of-your-life.html
