Swami Chidananda Centenary Celebrations 2016 in Yogaville on 6th & 7th May.

It was such a privilege and honour for Swami Chidananda Sevashram to have been able to be there at the Headquarters of Integral Yoga Institute, at Yogaville, Buchingham, Virginia, USA. Paramapujya Swami Satchidanandaji Maharaj one of the most prominent and senior disciple of Worshipful Gurudev Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, founded Integral Yoga Institute in 1966. It was a divine coincidence that while it is 50 years of Integral Yoga, we arrived there to Celebrate 100th Birth Anniversary of Gurudev Swami Chidanandaji. Special programmes were dedicated to the Birth Centenary Celebrations of our Gurudev Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj. On 6th May our Managing Trustee who is on the Swami Chidananda Centenary Yatra in USA shared his reminiscences. From Yogaville Swami Dayananda ji and Swami Muruganandaji spoke about their interactions with Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj. Swami Jyotirmayanandaji conducted the programme and it was attended by residents and guests of yogaville. A Documentary film made by Swami Chidananda Sevashram on the life and teachings of Gurudev Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj was shown at the programme. Swami Gurucharananandaji and Swami Karunanandaji graced the programme and so did other Swamijis. On 7th May, Swami Priyanandaji played a video talk of Swami Chidanandaji which was given at the Yogaville when Swamiji visited. The Subject was Mind its mysteries and control. After the Video Talk Swami Priyanandaji gave a presentation which had many pictures of both Swamijis together on several occasions. Swami Yatidharmananda ji was showered with love, care and kindness by each one of the Yogaville ashram and Swami Chidananda Sevashram is ever indebted for the kindness of the entire Yogaville Community. Here are some photographs.
