COVID-19 UPDATE: CLOSURE AND OPPORTUNITIES

The Ashram has made the difficult decision to remain closed through 2020. We plan to re-open for the Yoga Development Course in January 2021. Please note that the grounds and buildings, including the Temple of Light, are now closed to public access. As a residential community with an elder population, we are taking extra safety precautions while the virus is still active. READ MORE about our new online classes and a limited number of longer stays in Retreat Cabins or with Karma Yoga.

Description

In 1977, when Mary-Ann McDougall – mother, wife and teacher – first heard Swami Sivananda Radha speak at Yasodhara Ashram, she knew she had found what was missing in her life.

Her memoir, Carried by a Promise, is the unique story of a woman’s spiritual journey that follows her deepening commitment to Swami Radha and the extraordinary events that lead to her transformation into Swami Radhananda.

Carried by a Promise offers a very human example of how a heartfelt promise to the divine can carry us on the spiritual path. Above all, it gives an intimate look into the love between a guru and a disciple is a sacred connection that has the power to transform.

“She and I have made a promise. She gave me a thread that connects us forever. I have seen the looks of love that shine from her eyes in blessings. Sometimes her voice comes through me clearly. She is my spiritual mother who has imbued each cell with Light, who is the flame in my heart.”
