Swami Chidananadaji Maharaj will visit the Ashram on Gurupurnima day, Rishikesh
“The most effective way of deriving maximum benefit from the Guru is to create a channel of lofty, sublime devotion to the Guru, heroic Guru-Bhakti. And it is that heroic Guru-Bhakti where there is the greatest love and reverence combined with the highest obedience, the highest desire to please the Guru by carrying out his instructions that becomes the greatest channel for the inflow of Guru-Kripa. In that way, Spiritual Vision dawns and you “see” Reality, you “behold” Reality.
We hope to be graced by the presence of His Holiness Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj at the Sivananda Ashram Headquarters, Rishikesh, on 13th July 2003, for the Holy Occasions of Sri Guru Purnima, Sri Vyasa Puja and Sri Guru Puja. There will be great celebration at the Sivananda Ashram. In answer to the earnest request for His darshan by devotees and disciples in India and abroad, His Holiness Revered Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj is expected to attend the Holy Gurupurnima celebration after 4:00 PM.
Many devotees and disciples have requested to meet Revered Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj at His quiet retreat centre Shanti Niwas in Dehra Dun, but due to frail physical condition it is not possible for Revered Swamiji Maharaj to give darshan there to a large number of devotees. Therefore, Most Revered Swamiji has agreed in spite of His ill health to join the Ashramites and devotees to celebrate this holy occasion at Sivananda Ashram Headquarters. Revered Sri Swamiji Maharaj will be visiting the Ashram only to give darshan to the devotees. Therefore, all the devotees are requested to cooperate in consideration of Pujya Swamiji Maharaj’s ill health and avoid disturbing Him at His quiet retreat centre Shanti Niwas.
To facilitate your stay in the Ashram during Guru Purnima, it is advised to all the devotees who are planning to visit, to request permission from Revered General Secretary‘s Office and Reception Department.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the Ashram on 0091-135 2430040.
