Namo Narayan!! Swami Adhyamanandji's stay at San Jose from (June 21, 2014 -June 24, 2018), CA was a wonderful experience for all of us. Swamiji has touched everyone who has attended his lectures, pravachans out here. Swamiji had made sure that his lectures and pravanchans are audience specific and made interesting for the audience.
One of the home satsangs was targeted for younger kids. Swamiji lectured about Omakar in English in simplified language was really very impressive. It was really inspirational for younger kids and had fostered an interest in Yoga and Omkar in the younger generation. Some of the people I knew had drove over 50/60miles each way to attend his pravachan and satsang every day while he was here and had sought Mantra Diksha from him.
Swamiji had made sure that his visits include my dad in a nursing home, who has been in recovery from his cancer treatment. My Dad was bedridden for quite some time but Pujya Swamiji's prayers and HIS healing blessings brought him to come to Mandir for satsang with us, Amazing! heart touching for our family! I was impressed by Swamiji's punctuality and commitment about his time and event. We were blessed to have him.
"I was pleased to be able to welcome Swami Adhyatmanandaji to Toms River once
again and thank him for inspiring the participants of Yoga," said Mayor Kelaher
of the two-session seminar that drew out 100 able-bodied attendees. "All of the
participants were so impressed not only by the Swami's charming personality but
his worldwide reputation."
"The Swami has planted more than 10 million trees worldwide and his acts are a wonderful example of how just one person with an open heart and mind can make a huge difference in this world," - Dr. Nick Mehta .<< complete coverage - Toms River Times (NJ) >>
Yoga expert coming to Utah- "Many Americans think yoga is about stretching and exercise. This month a world-renowned instructor from India will lead four workshops in the Salt Lake Valley, explaining how it can be much more than that. Swami Adhyatmanandaji -- or Swamiji, as he is known -- has written books on yoga and philosophy while hosting hundreds of yoga camps all over the world. The Utah events are part of his global tour." - Peggy Fletcher Stack, reporter of Salt Lake Tribune.
Report of UK Tour 2006 by Rev. Sri Jogendra Patel: He attended Yoga teacher’s training course at Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad in December of 2005. Having inspired by Swami Adhyatmanandaji 's Yoga way of teaching, he organizes program of Swamiji Maharaj at London (UK), ever since then.
The essence of Pujya Swamiji’s talks on various subjects brought one theme of
Yoga way of living, living in harmony, peace & mutual love through Daily
Spiritual Sadhana. "Adjust, Adapt & Accommodate" is the key to Peace and Joy -
expressed out of every action of Sri Swamiji Maharaj. In the midst of very
hectic five days schedule, Swamiji maintained His daily Sadhana, Meditation &
Prayers. That was inspiring to observe and learn from.
"The Learned Swamiji, who is renowned in practicing & teaching Yoga and Meditation says : Yoga is eternal life in the soul or spirit. It transmutes a man into divinity. It brings a message of hope to the forlorn, joy to the depressed, strength to the weak and knowledge to the ignorant. Yoga way of Life brings happiness of sound mind in a sound body. Yogic living implies discriminative living. Yoga is equanimity, equipoise or equilibrium. It is the secret master-key to open the realms of eternal bliss and deep abiding peace"<< India Tribune , Chicago >>
