Swami Lalitananda—one of Swami Satchidananda’s senior swamis and who was instrumental in the founding of the Integral Yoga Institute of Coimbatore, India—was recently interviewed (see video around the 3 minute mark) about the Camford International School. This English medium school is one of only 45 schools across the nation that was chosen by Republic TV to profile in this news report as a top school.

Mataji has a Master’s Degree in education and is a highly sought after teacher and counselor. After teaching at Satchidananda Jothi Niketan, she has since become the counselor for the Camford International School in Coimbatore. She has been counseling students from 1st to 12th grade, as well as serving as Counselor and Faculty Resource person for the teachers. She also teaches Value Education classes for 3rd to 8th grade students. Mataji explained, “I really love my job as it gives me a wonderful opportunity to do all the counseling based on Swami Satchidananda’s teachings, and to be an example of these teachings for all the staff, parents and community-at-large.” Watch the video here.
