The DNA of Our SOUL Cannot Be Genetically Modified! – Swami Omkarananda
Essential to survival, seeds have profound spiritual implications. For centuries the planting of the seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul. In our current supermarket lifestyle of pre-packaged products, far removed from the cycles of planting, we have nearly forgotten this mystery. Now as the integrity of the seed is threatened, so is its primal meaning.
Swami Omkarananda is the Spiritual Director of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Los Angeles. Originally from Australia, she moved to the UK over forty years ago as a newly qualified doctor and worked as a psychiatrist in the NHS. Eighteen years later, she became involved in yoga, gave up paid work, and moved to live in an urban ashram in the UK. She joined the International Sivananda organization in 2004 and moved to California, where she managed the Grass Valley ashram for three years. She moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and became a Swami in 2011. She is passionate about building interfaith community, networking, Vedanta, Vedic ecology, permaculture, and helping people to develop spiritually.
