Jeevan Vidya Shivir near Bangalore - Aug 15th to Aug 21st

Jeevan Vidya Shivir was organized at Ananda Dhama - a place about 90 km from Bangalore, situated on the banks of river Cauvery - from Aug 15th to Aug 21st 2015.  Trustees, teachers of Om Shanti Dhama and people from different parts of the country and backgrounds joined this shivir.  There were about 40 participants.  Suvarna didi with assistance of Aditi didi facilitated this shivir.

It was heartening to see the openness with which the people from Vedic tradition listened to this alternative (vikalp) of Madhyasth Darshan.  I believe, this shivir has made a new beginning.
