Interfaith celebration commemorates Hindu guru's birth

 | 

A couple of weekends ago, I had the great pleasure of celebrating the interfaith movement and one of its pioneers at Yogaville in Virginia. It is the home of an interfaith ashram founded by a Hindu guru, Swami Satchidananda. Satchidananda was known worldwide for promoting peace and encouraging the growth of a fledgling interfaith movement since the 1970s. This occasion for my visit was the celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth. (He died in 2002.)
