Golden time in Mahaprabhudeep Ashram, Strilky
Strilky, Czech Republic, 30 October - 1 November 2015
His Holiness Vishwaguru Swami Maheshwaranand Puriji visited Mahaprabhudeep Satsang Foundation in Strilky, Czech Republic before his Autumn journey to India. Mother Nature bestowed on us her golden Autumn colors and her best ripe fruits, just as Vishwaguruji blessed us with his golden words of wisdom.
The bhajan satsang celebrating the anniversary of Hindu Dharmsamrat Sri Swami Madhavanandaji’s Mahasamadhi, according to the western solar calendar, took place on 31 October in Strilky Ashram. These occasions are unique, in celebration of the day a spiritually rich and successful life ends and the soul triumphantly merges into its origin. That is the victory of the spiritual evolution and it is the highest achievement. Remembering Sri Holy Guruji with singing Holy Guruji’s favorite bhajans was the best way to celebrate His Mahasamadhi.
The day before, Sadhvi Shantiji gave an inspiring and warm speech about her recent trip to the Himalaya. She talked about the source of Sri Alakhpuriji Siddhapeeth Parampara that originates from the ranges of the Himalayas between Kedarnath and Badrinath.
Those places are especially blessed and spiritually acknowledged, while giving home to many saints and a place for sadhana, practice of the serious seekers. Such places are full of peace, with an elevated atmosphere, where many miracles have taken place. Such is the holy place where the Yoga in Daily Life System originates from: Sri Alakhpuriji and the revered linage of spiritual Masters and their successors continuing with Sri Deveshwar Mahadev, Sri Deep Narayan Mahaprabhuji, Sri Dharamsamrat Paramhans Swami Madhavanandaji, and Sri Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwaranandaji.
In order to preserve the authentic and holistic origins of Yoga, Vishwaguruji paid special attention to the Yoga Teacher Assistants who are learning to become Yoga in Daily Life Teachers. The new younger generation had a special opportunity to learn directly from Vishwaguruji, as well as receive some practical advice on teaching yoga from Mahamandaleshwar Swami Vivekpuri who has himself been teaching yoga from a young age.
