A few more sentiments of gratitude to add on ..... 

"On July 3rd, Swami-ji visited Kula Kamala Ashram. His Holiness conducted a Divine Yagna to bless this new space and then He spoke with a group of students about the meaning of mindfulness in Yoga. The Blessed event started with a wonderful kirtan led by David Dragonfly. All the beautiful voices raised up to the heaven as this community chanted the Divine Name. So happy to spend time in His company, the evening ended with students saying that they felt their lives shifted toward the better and that they felt they gained a deeper understanding of Yoga. While at the Ashram, Swami-ji planted a tree in celebration. We are always grateful for our time with Swamiji and look forward to his visit next year. " -  Smt. Sharon (Sudha) Alitt (Founder of Kula kamala Ashram).

"Divine Experience": It was indeed a "Blissful" experience to be a part of  Maharudra and Navchandi Yajana (June 13 & June 14) at Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in the holy presence of Pujya Swami Adhyatmanandaji and so many Saints & Mahatma. Congregation of Vedic exponents from all over the world chanted the Veda mantras synchronously and the vibrations generated by this divine recitation invoked the very presence of the Lord that elevated higher level of consciousness which was felt by all. It was indeed a Divine experience. 
तन्मे मनः शिवसङ्कल्पमस्तु॥ meaning "Let the mind be immersed in Shiva (Auspiciousness)" - the devotees, whoever tried sincerely with concentrated mind at the Maharudra Yajana, surely did achieve the prasad of Shiva and got absorbed in THAT Auspiciousness."  -

"His knowledge of the subject, communication skills and melodious voice are exemplary. Everyone in the audience enters into a sort of trance where they are fully immersed into the divine nectar that is flowing. His sense of humor and use of everyday examples make difficult spiritual subjects much easier to understand. He has a unique ability to put everyone at ease by conversing in their mother tongue and showing genuine interest in their personal welfare. Overall, the program was a huge success and the local community members around Parsippany were able to derive precious pearls of wisdom from Pujya Swamiji's vast knowledge. Pujya Swamiji is always welcome at Shri Sanatan Mandir every time he visits the US." - Sri Ajit Kothari (President, Shri Sanatan Mandir) << More >>
