If you know and love Swami Ramdas, the cheerful Indian guru and saint who lived from 1884 to 1963 and was affectionately known as "Papa" (and if you don't), come and join us to form an informal sangha. We'll share information about Ramdas, read from a couple of his many books, appreciate his sense of humor and his broad, genial, ecstatic spirituality, which accepted all traditions, from Vedanta to Buddhism to Christianity.
He's a guru completely untouched by anything dark or questionable--a teacher who spread joy and spiritual freedom wherever he went. His work is still alive in a single beautiful ashram in South India, Anandashram in Kerala (www.anandashram.org).
I consider myself a follower, and I would love to share the experience of this delightful man with other people on the spiritual path,
