Impressions from winter trip to India (2004)

Swamiji's busy schedule took him from Delhi to many of the Indian YIDL ashrams (Kailash, Khatu, Jaipur, Jadan), to Udaipur, Ahmedabad, and even over to Mumbai, from where he returned back to Jadan. Wherever he went, he was accepted with great honor, respect and devotion, inherent to India and its people. The photo-coverage below shows some of his many activities.
