American Vedantist

He’s got the whole world in his hands

W ell, if we needed a reminder that we never know what’s coming at us around the bend, isn’t this it?! As you know, the entire world is struggling to control a major pandemic — the first in more than a century.

Like you, we’re doing our best to keep priorities straight: Staying home, keeping “the distance,” washing our hands, making an effort to flatten the curve.

Perhaps, in these trying circumstances you will have a little extra time to spend with us. We hope our contributors can offer you some moments away from the dreadful transformation unfolding around us — a soupçon of spiritual uplift, calming and sustaining.

May you and everyone you care about be well and in bright spirits,
Br. Shankara
