Bharat Darshan 2009-10 Winter YOGA Programs

Dear / Respected Family! Jai Siyaram!

This is the beginning our message on our 14th Visit to Mother Bharat since 1998. This is why we feel that our Bharat Darshan is a blessed event.
We arrived on Dec 3rd (2009) to Vadodara. Dec 5th, we went to Haridwar to attend Baba Ramdev's Bharat Swabhiman six days YOGA Shibir (Camp). That was wonderful experience. Our Rameshmama and Vandanamami were very impressed and felt the remarkable improvement in their energy level and Health within a few days. We also visited Mussoorie and Dehradun for one day. Of Course, we did not miss Ganga aarati in Haridwar and Hrishikesh, visiting beautiful Temples and Ashrams in both the places.

Dec 15th, we went to VYASA Banglore to attend International YOGA Conference on Diabetes. We ran into Anil Patel who demonstrated novel approach to Health improvement. Will share that experience in near future .... Niru walked on Live Red Hot Coal again this year. Since I had a minor accident with my right foot - ankle joint, in Mussoorie; I decided not to follow Niru this year for fire walk.

Returned to Vadodara on Dec 27th. I went to Dharampur to Vyasa-ashram of Shree Sharadbhai Vyas to meet Pujya Morari Bapu who came to speak at Shrimad Rajchandra's Ashram. While waiting for his arrival, I was leading chanting Hanuman Chaalisha. As Bapu arrived, I did not want to interrupt singing, so I responded offering my Naman-respect through lowering my head while closing my eyes, in response to his greeting me by Jai SiaRam Sudhirbhai!!!!!!!!!!

Then we spent nearly two months in Baroda except that one week in Muni Sevashram, Goraj. We distributed nearly 599 Booklet in Energizing Thoughts by Swami Vivekananda. Last year we had distributed over 700 booklets on Steps to Success by Swami Vivekananda. It is extremely joyous experience working with Students and also Mentally and physically challenged sisters. We conducted five sessions of Total 7 hours day YOGA Programs for that week.

We also had some mini YOGA Programs. This year we undertook painting our Nirmal Health Center and our renovating New Nataraj YOGA Center. We inspired the youth of 16 to 26 to take Leadership in running Our Vyayam Mandir (Gym). Pranali, my nephew's daughter to start running YOGA Classes in Nataraj YOGA Center. Our Hari OM Dada, Niru's father arranged to have Shiva Abhishek every Monday in our Shiv Mandir and Gayatri Yagya every Sunday in Gayatri Mandir. His heart feels with joy to start these programs.

Shree Sharadbhai gave me an opportunity to say a few words on YOGA during his Shrimad Bhagvat Katha near Dharampur. YOGA - GeetaAmrut (Nector) is given in the attachment.

While some of you enjoyed beautiful snowy winter, we enjoyed Bharat Winter. You know that the Best time of the year to visit Bharat is Dec through Feb. Lots of varities Fruits and Vegetables. Visiting Ratibhai's and his Sister's, Shilaben Thakorbhai's Chikoo Farm and Mango Grove was really exciting and informative. We had the taste of Best Chikoos and Mango Juice (Ras) of our life. Mango juice was specially processed so that it retains its original taste for over a year. Interesting!

This week, I will start posting some of our experiences and My health issues in my blog.

Enjoy ............... OM Prasanna - Bliss OM! - Sudhir
