Himalayan Dawn Newsletter Spring 2009



Welcome to the Spring 2009 issue of Himalayan Dawn. With the coming of Springtime, after the long silence of Winter, life begins renewed activity, breaking the old forms and sending up new sprouts.  Similarly, after the silence and rest of meditation, we find renewed energy and creativity to express in the world.  

In this issue, Swami Veda Bharati speaks of how meditation can help you derive more pleasure from life; Swami Nityamuktananda speaks of the essence of meditation; and Randall Krause tells of his misadventure with the "inner television".

We invite you to visit our website at www.hymla.com, for readings, inspiration, and a calendar of classes and events in Los Angeles and the surrounding area.
