They look great. We are all getting older. It was good to hear them speak again. Did they hear me speak ? I hope to see them this summer at the Reunion.

Someone asked Swami Vishnu, "Would you rather be a Tiger or a Cow? A Cow because a Tiger can always be beat up by a bigger Tiger." he was sharp, very quick witted.

Swami Vishnu as a young boy if he saw a snake eating a frog he would take a stick and tap on the head of the snake with the idea the snake couldn't eat the frog while He was there.
While at Yoga camp Swamiji asked a Staff member to remove a bug caught in a Spiders web. He had seen this out His window.

Swami Vishnu really liked comics & bumper stickers as He said, " You could tell what society was thinking."

Being Blessed with knowing Swamiji has not only changed my life, but created a REAL life for me that is aware of the MAYA. Back in 1982 I was honored with cooking for him at the Yoga Retreat in The Bahamas. Me, thinking I know how to cook and all, would spice up his meals-that is until he literally came into the kitchen one day and showed me how to make it simple. That chopped away a great deal of my ego and gave him more digestable meals. What a valuable lesson in keeping it simply-om shanti

Video of the Reunion in August 2009 of Staff of Swami Vishnu-devananda from the 60s, 70s and 80s:
Explanation by Bharata:
This was a reunion for yoga staff from years ago. It was held at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Camp in Val Morin, Quebec, Canada. Forty-four former staff attended. Many of the staff I had not seen in 15 or 20 years. It was a joyous time! (Videoed & photographed with iPhone!...with some help from iMovie & Photoshop!)
