Miten discovered that he needed open heart surgery while we were in the midst of our holiday groups in Costa Rica. Manose took over the Gayatri Festival and we flew to Houston for the surgery. He has been recovering well, with lots of sunshine, healthy organic vegan food, celery juice and daily walks as a rehab regime. Now strength is returning to the River Man and we're all hoping he will join us at some point during the evening on stage during our upcoming Soul of Mantra - Live! Tour.
