This weekend, January 19, marked the one year anniversary of the passing of Shyamdas into the eternal Lila abode of Sri Krishna. For all of us in the earthly Bhakti community it was the greatest loss, one many of us had a hard time imagining surviving. I feel that Shyam would have been so happy to know that we all spent the weekend in Satsang, his favorite place to be. We chanted, we told funny stories, and shared prasad. This was the beginning, middle and end of his teaching. Gather with “bhavish people” and share satsang.
We are eternally grateful for his association, for his beautiful teachings and his Bhajan, which live now in our hearts, in his books and in recordings of his voice, and in every satsang we share. We pray to carry his intentions as long as we live and to join him in Goloka Vrindavan someday. Shyamdas-ji ki jaya!
Mantralogy has some wonderful news. We welcome Adam Bauer, aka Purushottama das to the family. We will be releasing his album, Shyam Lila, which was recorded and produced by Mantralogy co-founder Gaura Vani, in the spring.
Also up and coming: a new album by Prema Hara, an offering by Yoga teacher extraordinaire Raghunath das, Inner Goddess, an audio book recorded by Shyam for Mantralogy last fall, and looking forward, a new album by Jahnavi Harrison and SRI Kirtan! Plus new t shirt designs are in the works. GOOD THINGS AHEAD!
Happy 2014 to all and much love,
