These are live interactive streaming video broadcasts that have both video and audio. Together, you and I will explore how this is most useful, (this is new for me as of January 2009). I sincerely hope that this is useful for the regular visitors to the website. Please join me in exploring this together this way of learning.

To ask "live" questions please use the "chat" on the Ustream page:

Swami J live streaming video channel at Ustream

Type your question in the "chat" box. However, please introduce yourself and let us all (especially me! :-) ) know who you are. Please tell me a little about yourself. If you have a website, please send the link. You can type these in the box at the bottom of the chat page.

Login name:

Please set up a login name and password through This way your name will appear next to your message (in the chat window) rather than some random number that is automatically assigned by Ustream. Please use your REAL name for your Login name, as it is helpful to know who is "chatting" or asking questions by seeing your name there. I consider this a personal communication between real people. Please don't just be anonymous. I sincerely hope that this works out well for people. Each time you come to the page, please remember to login first. Otherwise your name will not show in the chat window, but rather, Ustream will display a number instead of your name.

If your name has already been taken (when you choose your permanent login name and password), then please use your name with some numbers so that it is still clear who you are. For example, if somebody had already used "SwamiJ" I might use the name "SwamiJ486". You would still recognize that it was me.

If you are new to this (as I am) please do not feel intimidated. It really is easy, although it may appear difficult at first. Just click on the channel link above at the scheduled time. If you have questions or get stuck you can contact me by email.

Schedule and time conversion:

(This program is streamed in lower resolution for the benefit of those who have slower internet connections. The picture will be lesser quality, but the sound should be good. Please type into the chat window if the resolution is still not low enough, and I'll lower it still further. You will know this because the sound is "chopping" up.)

Sometimes: I'm sometimes leaving the channel "broadcasting" with a stuffed little bear and a sign, along with some music or mantra. This is a live stream (just for the fun of it).

Please check back to this page (the one you are now reading) often, as I'll probably be adding times and may be shifting things around some for a while.

Notices and "Follow": From time to time I may send out an announcement to the people who follow the broadcasts. If you wish to receive these, please click on the "Follow" button on the broadcast page of

Topics from articles:

We can schedule individual broadcast times to discuss individual articles on the website. This could be individual topics, such as Om Mantra or Karma, or it could be more extensive, such as going through the Yoga Sutras. Please let me know of your interests either by email or through the chat box on the program page. Another possibility is to have a "class" where you have already read a chapter (or few pages) of a particular book or watched a couple of the Swami Rama 10-minute videos on YouTube. Then we could "discuss" these pages or videos through the streaming video.

Your internet connection speed:

Ustream suggests an upload speed (on your computer and internet connection of at least 320 Kbps; 400 is preferred. If your connection is not fast enough the video stream may be choppy. You can check your internet connection at If the streaming is choppy and the internet connection speed is okay you might try closing other programs on your computer so that your CPU resources are become free.

Reload and Flash player:

  • You may need to click the reload button at the bottom left once you are on the video page; it is a little curved arrow shaped symbol.

  • You may also need the latest version of Flash if the video does not play properly.

Please let me know about your use of these broadcasts and any ideas or requests you may have.

In loving service,

Swami J




This site is devoted to presenting the ancient Self-Realization path of the Tradition of the Himalayan masters in simple, understandable and beneficial ways, while not compromising quality or depth. The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand. We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha, and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.
