We are constantly collecting readings and resources about the Himalayan Yoga Tradition. Please also visit our other site at hymla.com for current events and blog entries.
Hym-la [Himalayan Yoga Meditation - Los Angeles] provides support to three charitable schools in India including KHEL (Kindness, Health, Education, Laughter)
Randall Krause, a qualified yoga teacher, is a devoted supporter of KHEL for many years. When he heard that we needed funds for a heart surgery for one of our students, he immediately got to work, collecting the monies for our 15 year old S. (name withheld for privacy protection). I met him at SRSG and arranged for him to meet S. Our manager Beni drove S down from Dehradun to Rishikesh. S is writing his 9th grade exams, and with the highway traffic arrived just in time to take some pictures with Randall and have a quick chat. We are fortunate that now that S had recovered, he is able to attend school but has certain exertion restrictions, for example he is forbidden from riding a bike. On his last check up in Delhi, the doctors prescribed a blood thinner for him, and have now referred him to the Himalayan Institute Hospital, about a hour away from his home. We are delighted by this, as the Hospital was built by Baba, Swami Rama, who is also the inspiration for KHEL. Now S will not have to travel all the way to Delhi - 8 hours by bus thus avoiding the resultant strain. We wish to thank Randall and all the donors who gave so generously so that S may have a normal life as it possible for him. His medications and other nutrition are being provided by KHEL. KHEL has been working in these communities for over 25+ years, providing education, nutrition and other career opportunities. When we are blessed with being able to help a child with health challenges, all problems facing us pale in the significance of the shy smile we receive from him.

"Feel the love and wisdom of Himalayan Masters"
[February 3-5, 2012, Rose Garden Riverside, Nakhon Pathom]
After several months of hard works on preparation, it appears unbelievable that this amazing event had already passed by a month. This was Swami Veda Bharati's last visit to Thailand before he enters his planned 5-7 years silence retreat from March 2013. As his student, everything about this event has further strengthened my faith in Himalayan yoga and meditation tradition and catapulted my own personal development into the higher level. It has reminded me of the value and power of "surrender" and willingness to take risk (of not knowing what will happen), which are one of the key characteristics for one looking for progress in his/her spiritual path.

Mother Divine has gifted us a beautiful world filled with colours. She also made our minds deeply and diversely colour-endowed.
Of these colours we harvest daily, and moment by moment but seldom celebrate.
But then, when we truly come to celebrating, oh what flames of colours light up our lives, minds, hearts.
I wish you a colours-lit whole year and all of the times beyond.
Swami Veda Bharati
