On New Year's Day, following his spiritual talk, Swami Sarvadevananda expressed his gratitude and best wishes to Assistant Minister Swami Sarvapriyananda who leaves us this week to become head of the New York Vedanta Society. This is an auspicious posting for Swamiji as the New York center was the first Vedanta society in the United States, founded by none other than Swami Vivekananda.

Thank you for teaching us Vedanta. We are grateful and pray for Mother's blessings for you on this new venture.
