Dear Divine Soul,
Last year, our beloved Swami Veda left his body, departing from this material plane into "Eternal Silence". Swami Veda had lived in "Samadhi" while he was still in his physical form. When he left his body, he became free from its restraints and entered "Mahasamadhi". He indeed was a master of Love, kindness, compassion, light of wisdom and peace. He transcended all boundaries and touched the hearts of millions.
Now as he is no longer in the body, it is even more important that we join our spiritual entities together as disciples of the Tradition to continue on the path that he has shown us.
As a mother feels pleased at the sight of the clean face of her infant, so the Guru-Lineage is pleased at the sight of purified, meditative minds, and grants them the favour of love.
Please join us on this occasion of first Mahasamadhi (Thursday, 14th July, 2016) of our beloved Swamiji to offer Japa and Meditation to his memory. You are welcome to join as 'Yajmana' of 5 days Guru Gayatri Yajna (from 10 to 14 July 2016).
I look forward to your joining in the AHYMSIN family for this sacred celebration and heartily welcome you and your family, along with friends & relatives, to attend this celebration at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, Rishikesh, India.
Let us all carry Swami Veda's divine love and blessings in our heart. May the wave of grace elevate you, uplift you, guide you and purify you.
With love and grace of the tradition,
Swami Ritavan Bharati
