Life in the Ashram: Raj interviewed.

An interview with Raj Soni, by Narada

The new header picture on the blog (not this post), taken just this morning down the track, shows the Autumnal foggy mornings we get here, up on top of our Welsh hilltop. Quite beautiful, spectrally still with sheep wraiths floating out of the mist; the mist which is really clouds come down around our ears like a damp winter muffler.

Satsang at Satyananda Tapovanam, India on New Year’s Eve 2003

This is the first of the archived satsangs

that we’re editing and bringing into the public domain…

… and was given before an audience of quite a few people, and several million Cicadas! Hence the buzzing noise especially at the beginning, which it’s very difficult to edit out. It’s authentic we can say!

This one is a New Year’s eve Satsang given by Swamiji at Satyananda Tapovanam, near Banglore, after he’d founded Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. Covering a wide range of subjects, including some insight into what it is to be head of an Ashram (Acharya), and the importance of ‘spaciousness’ in the role, i.e. being supportive of other people but without being too close to their emotional baggage.
