Atma Kriya Yoga growing in Central and South America

In the last few months the devotees in Mexico, Argentina, and Brasil have been busy!

In cities all over Mexico people have been connecting to make OM Healing groups, organising new Atma Kriya Yoga courses, Puja workshops, yagnas, and more. Let's check out in a bit more detail what's been happening there, and also in South America:

Yagna, Atma Kriya Yoga course, Puja workshop, and Satsang with Swamini Janani in Guadalajara - 8th of September 

One weekend in Guadalajara, Mexico, many events were combined into one great workshop. Many people gathered together with Swamini Janani and the USA Atma Kriya Yoga coordinator Varahi to do a Yagna, learn Atma Kriya Yoga, and also to learn how to do a Puja to a deity.

Someone in contact with the organizers in Mexico wrote:

I've just been talking to our OM Healing Organiser Sonia about Swamini's visit this weekend. She lives in Mexico, and she travels a lot to give courses...so she is doing OMH in many places. In Guadalajara there have already been three OM Healings with 74, 100 and 82 people!
So, Swamini Janani is in Guadalajara this weekend to offer a Puja course (110 people registered!!), Yagna (160!!) and AKY Course (Varahi is the one in charge of that) with 45 people registered. Is that not great!?
Thought you may like to hear about this!

One organiser of the event, who has been doing much of the work in introducing OM Healing and Swamiji to new people in Mexico, wrote about how the event was for her:

The arrival of Swami Vishwananda’s Love and OM Healing to Mexico was welcomed by hundreds with their open hearts as if they were waiting since times immemorial with open arms to receive His blessings. We got more and more new people who came to us with each OM Healing. The people are filled with hope.

In Guadalajara at our first OM Healing there were 74 participants. They came from everywhere, even from far away places, following their hearts’ call. It’s magical how they arrived and dedicated themselves. People never cease to amaze us. Before our second OM Healing, one day after our announcement, we received 73 emails to reserve the seats.

Mexico calls for Love, and it’s a call from the heart.

In Morella we decided to do our second OM Healing outdoors. Just before starting, we received a lovely heavenly gift that spoke to all the hearts saying, "I AM here with you." A lovely rainbow without rain appeared to bless us.

Later two women arrived that did not know the place. They were lost and told us that they were following a sweet aroma that guided them. They were the last ones to join the circle.

A nice grandmother who saw Swami Vishwananda hugging her during the OM Healing and took her back pain away. She even had to stand because she could not bear her pain. Her willpower to stay in the circle was huge. In the end of the session she was well.

Bells, mantras, drums and prayers in unknown languages, colors and symbols... That’s the way that Mexico lives OM Healing. This nation can feel so much and needs the power of LOVE so much!

Thank you, Swami Vishwananda, for giving us this experience!
Mexico opens its arms to you in an eternal embrace.
With Love, Sonia, Mexico

Since doing much of this summer's organising activities in Mexico, one devotee went down to Argentina to help in getting OM Healing started there as well.

Here are some pictures from different parts of Argentina that have gotten started with OM Healing. Each picture is from a different city. How quickly OM Healing is taking off in Argentina!

However, Argentina isn't the only country in South America that has been deepening their Atma Kriya Yoga practices. Brazil also has been sharing pictures from all over the country that show many different locations where OM Healing has been organised.

Again, each photo is from a different city in Brazil!

It's so great to see how Atma Kriya Yoga and Sri Swami Vishwananda's message of Love is being spread around the world through people who have connected to them in a joyful and passionate way.
