    Yasodhara Heights was developed with the Ashram Society members in mind. It offers the opportunity to live away from the core of Ashram daily activity in a retreat-like environment, but also to be close to and engaged in the community and to live in homes that support our commitment to environmental responsibility.

    “Living at the ashram is for living and learning. It’s learning how to live, and it’s living so that you can keep on learning. We all have that opportunity.”

    In this satsang talk from the archives, Swami Radhananda speaks about the unique opportunities that living in spiritual community offers each of us. Living in an environment where we are challenged to reflect on our choices and actions, we are given the chance to grow.

    Integration. It’s been a consistent theme for both myself and our blog, Lightwaves. Almost 3 months after taking the Yoga Development Course and Hatha Teacher Certification I have begun to ask myself questions like, “how do I bring my practice into the world?” and “what does it mean to live spiritually?” In August, I will be leaving Yasodhara Ashram after close to two years of residence here. As the reality of moving to Ottawa and working with youth at risk comes closer to fruition, I am feeling inspired.

    swr-w-quanyinspokane95Kuan Yin the Bodisattva of Compassion in the form of a goddess stands in the heart of the atrium of Mandala House at Yasodhara Ashram.  Many an aspirant has been touched by her presence, regal, ready to serve those who come close. In China, Kuan Yin is usually shown in a white flowing robe, in Her right hand is a water jar containing pure water and the left holds a willow branch. Her crown usually depicts the image of Amitabha Buddha, Kuan Yin’s spiritual teacher before she became a Bodhisattva. Swami Jyotihananda shares her reflections on the restoration of Kuan Yin from her oxidized form to her former golden glory, reflecting on her own polishing.
