Swami Hariharananda, affectionately known as 'Swami Hari' will make a return visit to the Buffalo area.
Known in the Himalayas as the 'Laughing Baba - Laughing Sage', he is a nephew as well as a direct disciple of the late Swami Rama of the Himalayas, who has done much in the past 30 years toward uniting the spiritual wisdom of the East with the modern technological know-how of the West.
The home of Swami Hari, whose happy, friendly and optimistic personality instantly charms people everywhere, is the more than 600-year old sacred shrine of Tarkeshwar, high up in the Himalayas. It was at this special shrine that his Master, Swami Rama attained enlightenment, and Swami Hari has spent over seven years practicing and taking care of this shrine, with view of the highest Himalayan peaks.
Swami Hari has the rare ability to explain, in very simple words, the most complex concepts of yoga philosophy.
He will share with us some fascinating stories about his Master Swami Rama, talk about some of the miracles he has witnessed at his shrine; tell us about the new Technical School he is building in Swami Rama's birthplace nearby, and lead us into meditation 'the way we do it in the forest.'
The lecture will take place on Thursday, September 14, 2000 at 7:30 p.m. at The Museum of European Art, 10545 Main Street, Clarence.
