Yoga Wellness Center
(excerpted from a report by Dada Dharmavedananda, Director)

The Yoga Wellness Center in Ananda Nagar, India, a naturopathic healing center, has now opened.

In April, as planned, a number of patients stayed in the Center and benefited from our initial on-the-job training for staff. Since then some of the staff have given introductory talks in numerous locations in and around Ananda Nagar.

As a result we have had more patients – both poor and not-so-poor –with more excellent results. Nirainjan (of the UK) has been helping enormously; he wears many hats there, not only as a fantastic chef, but also as a therapist. Besides the assisting Dadas, all the other 5 fulltime staff are from the local area, including manager Dayal. Everyone is welcome to come as a patient, no matter what belief, group etc. The Center is a hive of spiritual unity.
