On the 21st of April the estate of the recently deceased Swiss bhakta Georg Wagner, who had studied under Sadananda in Basel in the early 70ties and who had inherited a part of Sadananda's library and personal notes and translations, was catalogued. Thanks to the generous offer of his son and heir, Pasqual Wagner, that part of the estate which contains books and texts of Sadananda will be included into the Sadananda-archive while that part which contains the works and translations of Georg Wagner will be first examined by the Prof. Dr. Neubert of the Department for Religious Studies of the University of Bern and later find a home in the Sadananda-archive, too. We hereby express our gratitude to all who were involved in saving these texts which are very valuable for our work/seva, especially Pasqual Wagner, Prof. Dr. Frank Neubert and Ursula Bründler Stadler, who had kindly stored the books/texts in the meantime.
On the 22nd of April a lecture was held by Katrin Stamm at the University of Bern about the life and teachings of Sadananda as part of a lecture series on global Hinduism that was organized by Prof. Dr. Frank Neubert.
The lecture focussed on questions of the inner and outer transformations an individual as well as a religion undergoes when leaving its homeland and changing its context.
We are now happy to present a new English book, Tender as a Flower, Hard as a Thunderbolt – Words of Truth and Love, which is a compilation of extracts from different texts of Svami Sadananda Dasa.
Some of the texts are from originals in English but the great majority are written in German.
The title of the book is a quotation from Caitanya-Caritamrita 2.7.71 and describes the character of the true guru, the one who is truly existing, the prema-bhakta.
Svami Sadananda Dasa (Ernst Georg Schulze) appeared in the world in Germany in 1908. In the early 1930s he became a disciple of Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati who before some of his native disciples once said, “You, Sadananda, and I, we have always been together.”
