Foundations and petals rising
Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh’s birthday is celebrated usually with a puja or special satsang,on September 8th by Yoga centres throughout the world in the Saraswati lineage, including those founded by Venkatesananda and Vishnu Devananda as well as our own, Swami Sivananda Radha.
The anniversary of Swami Radha taking initiation is celebrated on February 2nd each year with satsangs, pujas and reflections on gratitude for her commitment.
Swami Radha’s Birthday is celebrated on 20 March.
We remember Swami Radha’s passing each year on November 30th with reflections on her life, its influence on our own and reflections on our own personal and spiritual victories. It is also traditional to mark the passing of a guru with a Bandhara – students getting together for a celebratory meal.
Swami Radhananda, successor to Swami Radha and longtime President of Yasodhara Ashram, is now the Spiritual Director of our lineage. Each year we recognize her dedication and commitment on her birthday, February 4th.
In early May each year, coinciding with the Yasodhara Ashram AGM, we celebrate Swami Lalitananda’s succession as President of Yasodhara Ashram. Swami Lalitananda is the Ashram’s second President since the founder, Swami Radha, passed away. And she is leading the process of building the Ashram’s new Temple.
