 Loving Invitation to the Sangha of the Americas

~ Swami Ritavan Bharati~

“Jyoti Bhava: Illuminating Joyful Living”

..I am thrilled to extend my personal invitation to all members of the Guru family to join us at the beautiful St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, USA from July 25th to August 3rd, 2024. We will commemorate the 25th anniversary of our inaugural Sangha Gathering at this very location with Swami Veda Bharati.

Recognize the source of yearning, and listen to the pleading of your soul. Listen to the inner call and receive the blessings of the Tradition deepening your sadhana during this unique gathering of like-minded seekers. Through daily yoga and meditation sessions, and inspired teachings, you will renew and transform your knowledge, and experience the deepening silence of introspection and contemplation enhancing the clarity of your spiritual journey.

Our theme for this special gathering will be ‘Jyoti Bhava: Illuminating Joyful Living’. There will be daily presentations by senior members of the Tradition offering valuable insights into the practice of Mantra Sadhana (japa & ajapa japa), the eight limbs of yoga, upayas (spiritual practices), chitta-prasadana (purification of consciousness), and ishwar-pranidhana (surrender to the divine). These teachings serve as a guiding light, inspiring participants to embrace joyful living and cultivate a deeper understanding of the Self.

“May all the lights you see remind you of your self-luminous soul. That Divine Force pervades and permeates everything, animating all living beings. Seated in the lotus of the heart, pray to that, the source of light, love, and happiness.” – Swami Veda Bharati
