Swami Durga Das, CEO of Kashi Ashram in Florida, attended his first Centers Gathering in 2017. Inspired by the people he met, the following year their Groups Manager, Swami Babarama, attended the Gathering as well. “The first year it was hard to convince my community that attending the Gathering in Hawaii was actually work!

With the strong connection with HCN, Kashi is the ideal place for our first regional gathering in south-eastern USA. [Read more…]

Canada.” The Parliament had a powerful theme and these two ashrams were clearly aligned. Several lineage centers joined the Gathering and later formed a strong focus group to support each other in their similarities and challenges. [Read more…]
