I attended Swami Veda Bharati’s lecture last night at the U of MN (pic above is of Swami Veda… and me getting dragged up on stage). The lecture was fantastic. I wish I could have filmed it to share with you all.

Ahh, but no worries, Swami Veda has a YouTube Channel! Check out a lecture he did about 3 years ago at the U of MN.

    One of my absolute favorites is Swami Veda’s book Mahabharata: Bhishma. It is a slim paperback that I find profoundly inspiring and practical. Here is the link where you can buy it:

    Agreed Joanne! Love that book & his “God” book.

    Hi Lee,

    Swami Veda’s THE PHILOSOPHY OF HATHA YOGA is a fantastic book. SONG OF SILENCE: SUBTLETIES IN SADHANA is another one I like a lot.

    Beautiful poetry in LIGHT OF TEN THOUSAND SUNS.

    His new book HUMAN URGE FOR PEACE provides the only answer I can think of for bringing about world peace and harmony with the environment.

    He has written quite a bit more than this, also.

    Wishing you the best,

    Alright, I’ve got to add some books to my reading list! Thanks for all the awesome book recs everybody!

    Really intrigued about the Human Urge for Peace… sounds fascinating…

    wow thanks Michael! Ok Aimee, I think we should start a book club… 🙂

    Hey Aimee, I had to leave the lecture early to see my daughter. Sorry I missed seeing you on stage!

    If you are a student of the Yoga Sutras Swami Veda’s translations are a must-have. Philosophy of Hatha Yoga is a must-have for all hatha yoga practitioners who think yoga is just exercise.

  9. Aimee Says:


    Yes, I’ve heard that both of those books are fantastic. I think it’s interesting how many people think yoga is: 1) just a sit and reach stretching session or 2) a religion

    I finally left my church after having one of the up-highers tell me that I was creating a “devils playground” in the minds of those who came to my yoga classes. Wow.
