The Indian people never supported the Divine Life Society when Sivananda was alive.

After 30 years I went to Rishikesh, India. I wish sooner but just to sit there on the banks of the Ganges, it all made sense. A place to visit for sure.

Swami Vishnu said Master celebrated the various Religion’s Feast days, spoke English, and gave…


Master & Swamiji slept very little.

Posted on October 26, 2010 at 12:59pm 0 Comments

Just a few hours a night. Master would come out of his Kutir promptly at 0400. Swami Vishnu had to be there to walk with Him. After an Assassination attempt, ( a man with an axe) Swamiji and another slept down by His door to ensure nothing happened. Swami Sahajananda said, “ I think Gurudev would snore”, He said,” A lot of saints did.”…


Swami Vishnu left The Ashram 2X while Staff.

Posted on October 26, 2010 at 12:55pm 0 Comments

He left the Ashram 2 X. Once for a weekend and He came back or they talked Him into coming back then another time He left for a year on His terms. He thought the Ashram was full of losers etc. He was Master’s personal assistant. When He did come back He wanted His personal assistant job back and Master pointed over to the new man currently in that position and said He was…


9 days of Mother's worship is over.

Sunday night completed 9 days of The Divine Mother’s worship. We had the perfect Swami Vishnudevananda style celebration. Gajananum from the Devananda Yoga Center in Berkeley, CA did an outstanding job. The food was perfect. Narayan and Hari Das took care of the details.…


Swamiji's Feet ...

I think He had a very hard life. Quite a task to bring Yoga to the West. Look at ALL the Yoga there is today. It’s everywhere. In the 1980’s the only place you could openly teach was in a Unitarian church. In public institutions they had to give you space. Swamiji wanted practitioners not preachers. Everything He said has come true except Nuclear war. I was quite fortunate to…

Dear Gopal,
thank you for joining. Great to have you here.
Please join - a great way to spread Swamiji's teachings. You can also upload mp3 files of Swamiji, or even put them into a player - or upload Videos to Youtube, and then embed them here. Many ways to spread Swamiji's teaching.
Thank you for the most valuable service you are doing to Swamiji.
Om Shanti

Nice to meet you. I live in Japan and teach a beginners yoga class here. Yoga therapy is becoming popular there is a YIC course connected to swami Vivekenanda here in Japan that I attended. Where does you Japanese master live? Shiatsu training to be a practioner is also so expensive here. I appreciate your videos.
peace to all
om shanti

I read the piece that you posted on suicide and feel compelled to comment as there is so much judgment in labelling it as a sin. People who commit suicide are obviously in a very troubled state, many times due to chemical imbalances in their brain. Someone who is chemically balanced does not contemplate killing themselves. To judge the action of someone who commits suicide and label it as a great sin and go even further to imply that perhaps they will continue to be troubled in their next life as a result is not useful. God sees the heart of everyone and has Infinite Love and Compassion. Food for thought...blessings to all.
