“Annual Festival of the Spirit”
from May 27 – July 5, 2020
In 2020 the 40-day period of Spiritual Renewal begins
on May 27th until the Full Moon of Guru Purnima, which this year is on the July 5th.
Each summer during the 40 days that precede Guru Purnima, sadhakas are invited to participate in the 40-Day Spiritual Festival, to expand and refine one’s sadhana.
These 40 days are celebrated wherever you are.
It is a time to contemplate (and talk with others about) the many ways you can participate.
You might review what Swami Veda’s suggestions and teachings have been in previous years, including Sadhana in Applied Spirituality and the practice given by Swami Veda on 9th March 2013 for “your next five years and for the rest of your life.” You can begin with the homework that was given in 2013. You can also intensify the Advancing Practices of Shri Vidya in the Himalayan Tradition given by Swami Ritavan Bharati.
During these 40 days, yoga students can choose to intensify their yoga practice and/or make beneficial changes in their lifestyles, in a variety of ways. Here are just a few from which to choose.
