Temple of Love

As I wake up this morning, there are all these emotions and thoughts and ideas… where do I start to be able to even convey these feelings. In only a few days, we are, once again, on our way to the mystical spiritual lands of India. It just hit me last night, after our satsang (group mediation)that we are visiting […]

Millionaire

Just sitting around the fire place, in those magic moments, with friends that we find only by the Grace of God.  We had just finished a wonderful meal, after offering it with beautiful mantras that made the act of eating more than feeding the gut, but enlivening the soul.  We were discussing life, laughing, being with each other, just like good friends can do.  In my […]

Fruit of Actions

How many times we have heard that “it” has nothing to do with us. Well, I think as I get older (or wiser) I realize how these saying are even more true and real. As I sit through satsang on Friday, and I hear the words of a devotee of Radhey and Krishna explaining this, […]

Seeds Of…

This year, 2013, has been a year of change. Circumstances, people, jobs, ideas, all have been transforming in my life. It is the nature of the world we live in, as we understand.

So besides the usual things to plan like figuring out what am I going to cook,(it’s never the same menu since I like to […]

New Year

On the edge of my bed, in the midst of serenity. How can I even start to explain what life in an ashram may mean or is doing to my life… especially, my spiritual life, how can I begin… My intention is reach you and share with you the hopeful possibilities of life.  I have, […]

Our Community

The Devanand yoga center, is not a regular place for yoga, it is truly a community. Through the many years of the yoga center’s existence, the center has been dedicated to provide opportunity to participate in what a yoga commune we understand it to be. We are so grateful.  People do not seem to understand what it means when […]

Always with us

Once you entered in the yoga center, you knew there was something special about this place.  The moment I saw you entering into the center, I knew there is something special about you.  The center is different, mystic, gentle, quiet and full of energy at the same time.  It is the place where we all […]
