Memories and Images from Vaidya’s new Prana Center Inauguration and Birthday Celebration

Thank you to ALL who joined us in person and via live webstreaming. We had a grand time on Saturday August 5, 2017, celebrating Vaidya’s new Prana Center, as well as his birthday. We had a full program and we were live on Facebook for those of you who were following us. SVA doctors and experts shared memories and anecdotes with Vaidya Mishra – Drs. Marianne Teitelbaum, Mark Vinick, Kimberly Hoffman, in addition to dear friend Jerry Jarvis, as well as Lorna Cheng – the SVA guru of the local Chinese community in Southern California. We wanted to keep going, reminiscing about Vaidya and all the beautiful memories he has given us, however, the exquisite Shakti Dance Company, under the expert directorship of Mrs. Viji Prakash, and her daughter, Mythili Prakash, were awaiting to delight us with powerful dances. They performed a dance offered to Ganesha, and to Devi Shakti.
Here’s a clip of the celebratory dances:

We also had a SVA feast – of course! We served Vaidya’s favorite recipe, made from scratch by his wife just the way he loved it: sprouted Mung Beans with home-made paneer, Raisins and Cashews, with Mom’s Masala and Mom’s Ghee, as well as home-made yoghurt from raw milk. After wishing Vaidya plentiful love we had lots of cake with Pitta Tea, and Lime Water made with  his Sugar-Free Sweet Nectars!
The Prana Center now has an on-site boutique with all of Vaidya’s unique formulations on display, as well as his printed and audio and audiovisual educational materials. In addition, we also carry gift items such as silk and wool shawls, and gift items.
Stop by to check it all out for yourself!
We will very soon be announcing our schedule for on-site SV ayurvedic treatments, services, and workshops. Stay tuned!
And once more: thank you for supporting and celebrating Vaidya’s New Prana Center with us, and helping us carry on his SVA legacy. We look forward to a bright SVA future…
