Carving Out Time for Sacredness – April 1st to April 10th

From Friday, April 1st to Sunday April 10th, the Ashram observed Navaratri, an astrologically auspicious period of the year. As the seasons merge, there is a special energy that is available to assist us with any goal or aspiration. By engaging in a focused practice at this time, we have an opportunity to experience something different from our mundane lives and to connect with that Great Unknown, called by so many different names, in all of the different traditions.  You can access Babaji’s Navaratri satsangs here.
Fall Navaratri will be observed from September 26th to October 4th.

Fall Navaratri 2021: Wednesday, October 6th – Thursday, October 14th

Navaratri is time a time set aside each year for honoring the presence of the Divine in our lives. As the seasons merge, it is a perfect time to enhance our practice or bring a change into our life. During this sacred time, we are encouraged to make an extra effort to come closer to our spiritual practice. Mother’s Grace and guidance is constantly being showered upon us – all we have to do is be available to receive it and hear it by keeping our heart and mind clean and steady.

Babaji’s daily Navaratri satsangs can be accessed here:  Navaratri Satsangs

The Navaratri satsangs are also available in podcast format on Spotify and other podcast services as “Baba Harihar Ramji’s Navaratri Satsangs

Sonoma Ashram Foundation Day – Celebrating 30 Years

On September 21, 1991, Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ramji and Babaji along with Baba Anil Ramji and Father Dunsten inaugurated Sonoma Ashram in Sonoma, California.

At that time I was living at Sky Farm in the Sonoma hills and Baba was visiting from India. September 21 is the day that we traditionally celebrate the founding of Sri Sarveshwari Samooh – the social service organization that Baba founded in India in 1961. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to receive his blessing. We wrapped flower petals into the flag and raised it. We did a small puja, and then Baba then pulled the cord, showering us with flower petals. I felt deep within as if Baba’s blessings had been bestowed for the beginning of an ashram in Sonoma. The ancient lineage of Aghor had officially arrived in the U.S.
