Yoga in Africa? By Consul B. John Zavrel


A special message from Swami Veda Bharati (Rishikesh, India) was sent to Mr. Idriss Ouedreogo and his wife Aicha on the happy occasion of the birth of their first son on September 5, 2000:


Dear Idriss and Aicha,

Knowing how beautiful and lovable you both are, I can only imagine how beautiful and lovable the baby must be. I hope that you are pleased with the name given by Pandit Dabral. I would suggest that you still select a name in Burkina language, and use Nirvana as middle name - if you prefer it that way. I love people when they are able to maintain their own traditions and languages.

Please give a big kiss from me on the baby's cheeks and now I have to make sure to visit that county soon just to see my grandson, my first grandson in that continent.


With many blessings and prayers,

Swami Veda Bharati
