Today we visited the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama ashram, which follows the teachings of the Himalayan Yogi Swami Rama, who was also a master in controlling body functions like heart beat. One of the central ideas of the center is to scientifically prove the benefits of yoga.
In the evening we were invited for a dinner and private audience with the current Swami – Swami Veda Barathi. We were very lucky to be part of such an excellent talk (pictures and video coming soon) as from March 2013 Swami will start a prolonged period of silence, and this talk would not have been possible. By the way, “prolonged” means 5 years of silence (maybe even 10)!
