with Swami Yatidharmananda
Swami Yatidharmananda comes to Chicago to present a relaxing Yoga Nidra session, which will be followed by meditation, chanting, and satsang (questions and answers). This class will invite you to connect to the wisdom of the lineage of Master Sivananda. "Man himself is God and the entirety of Sadhana (spiritual practices) is meant to enable man to realise his God-nature, to realise that the God he has been searching for is his own Self." Sivananda Saraswati. "The power of divine love cannot befathomed, it cannot be described. It will follow you wherever you go, whatever you are, whatever you have done. Even if you go to hell, it will reach out for you there and break hell to pieces and redeem you." -Swami Chidananda.

Growing up in Cuttack, Odisha, Swami Yatidharmananda had a thousand questions like this about our culture, religion and spirituality. After some time as a programmer in the private sector, Swamiji moved to Rishikesh, where he joined the Divine Life Society. He became a personal attendant to its president, and also served as the order's digital archivist.
