Swami Vishnudevananda came to the West to share the teachings of Yoga but he was also deeply concerned about peace and the well being of the world. He learned to fly and bought a small plane, which earned him the nickname of “The Flying Swami”. During this weekend, listen to inspiring satsang talks about how he flew peace missions over war zones, creating awareness in the news media and dropping peace pamphlets and flowers over war torn areas, risking his life in the name of peace.
