Connected: 8,000 miles away
September 23rd, 2009
You may have read in the recent posts about the 61st anniversary of Swami Kriyananda’s Discipleship to Paramhansa Yogananda. The essence of the celebration was captured by Barbara Bingham with her beautiful photos of Swamiji, the choir, and the crowd of celebrants.
I too was able to “attend” Swamiji’s talks, thanks to the live video broadcast. When Swamiji gave Sunday Service, I was in Mumbai (Bombay), India with a few friends (one is pictured to the left). We stayed up until 11:30pm to watch the broadcast, which finished at 1:00am. We gathered in the kitchen so as not to disturb the sleeping residents of the house. We felt a part of the celebrations, as if we were sitting in the front row, although we were over 8,000 miles away.
We offer heartfelt thanks to the tremendous service of Kent Williams, Dave Bingham, and others, who work hard to provide these broadcasts. And we bow to the miracle of the internet, which keeps us spiritually connected in ever-new ways.
