Celebrate Diwali at the Ashram – Monday October 24th

Please join us at the Ashram for a simple observance of Diwali, the Festive of Lights on Monday 10/24 from 5-8PM.

Arrive early to help us decorate our Ashram Home! Then stay for Arati at 6PM followed by light refreshments.

On Diwali homes are decorated with lamps and lights to celebrate the new year ahead. Historically, this is the day when Rama returned home after being in exile for 14 years and was greeted by a city decorated with lamps. Symbolically, the ideal human being dwelling within us returns home during Diwali.

Bring a tea light & join the fun!

Turning Towards Sacredness – September 26th – October 4th

Navaratri is coming!  On Monday, September 26th, our bi-annual observance of Navaratri begins. Navaratri (Nine Nights) is 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.
During this time, our Ashrams in the U.S. and India observe silence and other austerities.  Special pujas (worship ceremonies) will also be observed.  Babaji will also be giving daily satsangs (talks) throughout Navaratri with the meditation and focus for each special day.
Babaji’s Navaratri satsangs will be posted on our website every day and can be accessed here.  We will also post the satsangs to our podcast: “Baba Harihar Ramji’s Navaratri Satsangs”, accessible through many podcast services.
