Lynn (Gurupremananda) Cattafi, SVA Board President
Look around you. Everything is in a state of transformation. While others see chaos and uncertainty, as a yogi, you can see the Divine in all of it.
Look inside. You are also in a state of transformation. You are growing and changing in ways that you would never have expected. Your inner state is deepening so beautifully. You are handling changes and challenges with more and more ease. Your Svaroopa® yoga practices produce this result because of the Grace that flows through them. Yoga gives you the tools to recognize the depths of who you really are. You are Consciousness-Itself.
Describing transformation, Gurudevi Nirmalananda says, “You take on a new form. You have a new sense of self, more true to your own capital-S Self.” She continues, “Your ability to manage your own spiritual blossoming comes from the cosmic intelligence arising from its inner source. Your ability to go with the flow in your life, as well as with the changes in your Ashram, comes from the ever-expanding depths of your own being.”
In response to the pandemic, your Ashram has transformed the “Grace Delivery System”. Gurudevi and the other swamis have worked tirelessly to bring Ashram programs to all who must “stay at home.” They bring power and depth to every interaction with you. Whether online or onsite, what they deliver fuels your own transformation directly.
I’ve availed myself of these many Ashram offerings. Joining the Meditation Club gave me consistent daily practice. The Vichara Club has powered me through mental and emotional sludge. I zoom in for the free Japa Club “online meetings.” Twice daily, they reset my state. I have taken several weekend retreats online. These deep encounters with Divine teachings restored me and sanctified my home. And I conclude each week with our online Swami Sunday, basking in Gurudevi’s teachings and darshan. I am so grateful for these offerings. Quite literally, they reach me wherever I am, both on the inside and outside. I am grateful for my own tangible transformation.
As the Ashram Board President, I know the costs associated with providing the vast array of Svaroopa® Sciences services, onsite again as well as online. As I am transformed by them, I experience an inner upwelling of gratitude. It compels me to give back with financial support. September 2020 marks the 11th birthday of Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram. So I’m celebrating this milestone birthday as well as expressing great gratitude! I hope you will join me in honoring the source of your transformation and give as generously as you are able.
