    “The most beneficial thing we can bring into ourselves is the Light, and it will heal us at all levels.” In this satsang video, Swami Radhananda leads us through a guided meditation on relaxation and the Light. She stresses the power of choice that we have to use spiritual practices like this to create space in our daily lives and in challenging situations.

  2. Living Service

    bridging the local and global community

    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.


  3. Starting From the Beginning

    “Everybody starts at the beginning.” In this satsang talk, Swami Radhananda reads from the manuscript of her upcoming book. The book is based on reflections from her diary, spanning the time she has spent at the Ashram, including her first arrival in the 1970’s and the years of learning with her guru, Swami Radha. The excerpt that she reads traces the beginnings of her spiritual life, of her first steps on Ashram grounds, being introduced to yogic practices and reflection. She revisits many of the questions that she had begun asking at the time: “What does it mean to be a woman? Who am I?”

    “It’s the depth of your understanding that counts and then it’s up to you. Don’t just skim the top, the surface. Go deeper with your understanding.”

    In this satsang talk, Swami Radhananda speaks about the process of creating her upcoming book and the practice of reflection. The book is based on her reflections since first arriving at the Ashram in the 1970’s. (more…)
