India Trip

India Trip 2015

Our early morning chant began with Swamiji’s new translation of Guru Gita verses. Here you see the yogis’ deep focus and open hearts, as they began delving into the profound teachings in this ancient text. Our next group leaves for Ganeshpuri on February 7, 2015 and has 12 heavenly days of practices in the land of yoga.

Lighting Fire


We spent an ecstatic day in our 2013 India trip, with the traditional fire ceremony burning away karmas, fears and resistances. Honored as the fire of yoga, the source of light and life, we are looking forward to another yaj~na in February 2015, as part of our retreat with Swami Nirmalananda in Ganeshpuri.  GANESHPURI’S Grace
