Dear Divine All,

It is with great pleasure that we launch a special edition of Swami Atmavidyananda's Guru Prasada: The Guru's Grace CD to help raise funds for our ashram in Australia.

As we commemorate the Mahasamadhi Day of our beloved Gurudev Baba Hariharananda, on 3 December, we recall a very special feature of this great soul — his humility and love. He could be softer than a flower and sometimes, harder than steel. His speech was lilting and charming. He was like a child with children, a friend to the young, a companion to the old and distressed, and an inspiration to all. But he was always humble. For each of his disciples, he was an example of perfect humility.
Although monasteries are an old system in all religions, an ashram is a quite new concept in the West. The practice of living in an ashram appeared in the West with Swami Vivekananda, then later with our beloved master Paramahamsa Yoganandaji, and today ashrams contain people of many spiritual backgrounds.
 
The modern approach to ashram is a spiritual abode where residents engage in sincere spiritual living with love and compassion. Visitors come to charge their lives with spiritual experience and return to society with a new understanding.
