  1. I am really enjoying this series, reflections from the ashram. It’s interesting to hear about how each area works independently and then feeds all the other areas of the ashram. I am enjoying Lightwaves immensely, following all sorts of links to all the special places. Bring on lots and lots of music in your videos! There is a very special group of karma yogis there.
    Lightwaves keeps me in touch.
