One bright day in early December, Dr. Shirley Telles, the world's most published yoga researcher, came to Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama with her research team from Haridwar's Patanjali Yogpeeth and with Cambridge University's Dr. Robin Monroe. After meeting our lab team at SRSG's Meditation Research Institute, they all took a rare day off to share a meal overlooking Ma Ganga upstream.
There are several research studies which Dr. Telles presently co-directs at SRSG.
We have more articles and photos than any other issue to date! They include:
Happy 40th birthday to The Yoga Society in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA! Swami Rama created the Milwaukee center in 1971. May this anniversary be a celebration of the past forty years, of the present, and of the promise of future growth and potential.
Congratulations HYT-TTP on your biggest class yet at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama!

A new important project has begun in Ahymsin. A group of people from all over the world has been selected and invited to SRSG by Swami Veda Bharati with the purpose of translating and recording numerous meditations in the respective languages.
As Swamiji said during the course, our Tradition is probably a unique reality all over the world; the amount of recorded meditations at all different levels is a treasure that no other schools possess. So a desire to make such a patrimony available for all humanity is now the driving purpose of this project: to translate and record the selected meditations in all the different languages so that the barrier of language would be overcome allowing the teachings and guidance of the Masters to achieve anybody in need.
Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama is listed as #04 in the new book YOGA IN INDIA, A Journey to the top 24 Yoga Places, presented by yoga.in, which is an internet site that currently lists 295 yoga centers, schools and ashrams in India.
The expected release date is the first quarter of 2012.
“Beyond the yoga-lite of gyms and fitness centres, past the long white beards of the gurus of popular conception, through the veil of modernity that is pulled over the face of India, is the place where science and mysticism meet. This is where yoga and, more specifically, yoga meditation shift from interesting to fascinating. This is where meditation moves beyond a simple way to relax and into the realms of science fiction. This is Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, the official headquarters of the Association of Himalayan Yoga Meditation Societies International (AHYMSIN),” the article starts.
Blessing on behalf of Swami Veda, the Swami Community at SRSG and myself for a Peace-filled Holiday Season, full of Love and Joy arising from a seed of silent-contentment within.
"Beautiful is Thy Silent Night;
decked with jeweled stars of Thy Divine Name.
An ecstasy of devotion, an emotion of expectancy;
will the shrine of my body-mind temple find the inner-light still lit?
Entering the stillness of wonder, O-Silent Night,
Thy Presence is felt, Thy Will be done."
