  • Practice and Patience

    Swami Padmananda welcomes you to the Temple of Light, to the arrival of spring blossoms, and to the importance of practice for living our ideals. Connect with the Ashram community worldwide as you take time to “Be Still and Know” (a favourite Swami Padmananda phrase from the Bible, Psalm 46:10) during this satsang offering. Our closing song Mother Walk With Me is an equally inspired offering by our very own singersongwriter resident Shakti accompanied by the ever-evolving Elastic Band.
