“Of all the iconic images, the one that best captured what endures from the 1960s is the orange-robed Swami Satchidananda addressing the multitude… That photo stands as a potent symbol of the meeting of East and West that has transformed American culture.”

–Philip Goldberg, Author of “American Veda”

Today, we remember Swami Satchidananda Saraswati. The “Woodstock Guru” spread messages of peace and love to those around him, and impacted the lives of many who attended Woodstock in 1969. Missing you, friend. @swamisatchidananda
