Satyananda (Jörg Andrees Elten)

Satyananda

Excerpt from ‘The Cosmic Madhouse’; Satyananda has moved into the ashram to write his book and embarks with other sannyasins to Bombay for a media conference to neutralize the negative impressions the photos in the media stirred up, showing naked participants in the Leela and Tantra groups.

The day Satyananda died, friends and visitors came to say farewell to him. After telling their stories to each other they had the idea of collecting them in a book. The result is ‘Abschied von Satyananda’, just out now in German language. Hear how it came about.

Dhiren writes on the occasion of a meditation weekend, held in Stellshagen, Germany, in memory of Satyananda who would have been 90 years old on March 30, 2017. Dhiren also announces that his translation into English of Satyananda’s bestseller ‘Ganz entspannt im Hier und Jetzt’ will be published later this year.
