Mahaprabhudeep Ashram in Strilky again hosts International YIDL Seminar
Time spent with the Master is the most precious time in the life of a spiritual aspirant. A beautiful month of satsangs and darshan for Vishwaguruji’s students in Europe continued in one of Europe's most beautiful ashrams of the Sri Alakhpuriji Siddha Peeth Parampara - Mahaprabhudeep Ashram in Strilky, Czech Republic.
The Weekend Seminar in this time of the year is traditionally dedicated to a celebration of Christmas and the commemoration of the Mahasamadhi day of our grand master Bhagwan Sri Deep Narayan Mahaprabhuji.
For the three days of the seminar, the participants enjoyed exceptional satsangs with Vishwaguruji. Vishwaguruji reminded us that humans have the chance to get liberation only if they follow the human dharma and awaken divine qualities within. He compared the spiritual progress with the building of a hundred floors. No matter how beautiful it is, if there are no stairs that we can climb up to the top floor, it is useless. Spirituality without a teacher and Guru parampara is like that building without stairs.
“Taking this highest path to the Brahma Loka one becomes a saint himself; and the more and more holy we are, the more humble we are." To explain this further, Vishwaguruji quoted Sant Kabir who said in his poem: Laghuta se prabhuta mile, prabhuta se prabhu dur; chinti le shakkar chali, hathi ke sir dhul - explaining how being humble (small) leads us to God in the same away a little ant will pick a small crystal of sugar from the dust easily; while trying to do the same, a big elephant will get only dirt in his trunk.
Practicing Sarva Hitta Asanas while chanting the mantra Om Nama Shivaya has been introduced by Vishwaguruji as a new speciality of Yoga in Daily Life seminars and it gives great joy to body and to soul.

Strilky Ashram this winter will be a special place for Yoga in Daily Life spiritual meetings and celebrating holidays.
