Events & Celebrations

opportunities to be in her presence

All the events are marked occasions that hold profound significance for a seeker. Beyond the folklore each event has its own rationale which remains unknown without the master's enlightening satsang. It is only with the master's grace that a seeker can dive within into the ocean of self-exploration, secured with the anchor of true wisdom. Master's darshan on such occasions is akin to a shower of unparalleled grace. A seeker is satiated with the mere glimpse of the master, yet the enlightening talks of the master on such occasions are an added blessings; an act of Her boundless benevolence which discard the veil of ignorance on our minds  All these events are celebrated in the Ashram with great bliss and zest invoking within each, a spirit of true festivity.

Amrit Varsha

The cascade of wisdom flows uninterrupted, from place to place, city to city, town to town, continent to continent, satiating hearts with love. Thousands sit together, in rapt attention, yet it is as if one is alone with the master, remembering and recalling ‘That’ which has been long forgotten, which is stirring the chords of the heart. And when the revered master sings, it is as if Her mellifluous voice soothes the anguish of eons, awakening one to the inner melody ever resounding deep within. The shower of bliss has drenched almost all major cities in India– Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Gurdaspur, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Patiala, Shimla, Goa, Ahmedabad, Anand, Rajkot, Vadodra, Agra, Faridabad, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Indore, Kanpur, Nagpur, Nashik, Pune, Navsari, Panipat, Rajpura, Rohtak, Gurgaon, Sri Ganganagar, and continues to flood hearts and minds. Discourses held in pilgrimage places like Haridwar, Badrinath and Vrindavan offer aspirants and devotees an opportunity to walk on hallowed ground, magnetised by the vibrations of sages and mystics and also to imbibe the master’s words of wisdom.
Only the master knows where a true seeker is waiting, pining for the Beloved, and responds to the call of the heart. Overseas meditation retreats, workshops, discourses, talks, radio shows and television appearances in Europe, Canada, United States, Africa, Nepal, Middle East, Far East as well as pilgrimages with devotees to Tibet, Nepal, China and Switzerland are Her ways to reach out to those yearning afar. Millions watch the discourses on television; fortunate are those who come face to face.

Hridaya Samvaad

Darshan, being in the presence of the master, is an awesome experience. When the master is in the ashram, everyone looks forward to the weekend, for Sunday is Darshan Day. This is the time when the master meets aspirants who come from far and wide to soak in the divine atmosphere, listen to the master’s words of wisdom and have their spiritual queries resolved. A glance, a word, a smile, a conversation or a long deep look right into your heart - the master can bestow anything. Darshan is the inner experience, the inner rendezvous. Be there at 10:30 am, with a loving heart and an open mind.
To change the prevalent mindset undermining women, as part of Her crusade against female foeticide and infanticide, the revered master devised a unique way to combat this evil practice, announcing that She will personally name newborn girls. Lucky indeed are these infants, who come to the ashram to be lovingly blessed and named by the master, a gift they will cherish their entire life.

Mahashivratri

There are unimaginable depths to every occasion, every celebration, but we usually remain so engrossed with the outer celebration that the inner revelation becomes a faraway possibility. Maha Shivaratri is one such occasion which is immensely profound and holds great significance for a seeker. This day is celebrated in the Ashram with enlightening satsang, mesmerising kirtan and powerful meditation. The talk on Shivaratri by the revered master is interspersed with the sutras from Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, a great sacred scripture chronicling the dialogues of Lord Shiva with his consort Parvati, demystified for a seeker who aspires to awaken from his slumber of ignorance. As it is said that wisdom is not about the words but the fragrance of the practice, these unravelling talks inspire the seeker to practice with dedication, paving the path to self-realization.

Holi Mahotsav

Holi becomes holy when it is celebrated with the revered master in the divine ambiance of Rishi Chaitanya Ashram. As such Holi celebrates the puranic legend of Holika and Prahlad symbolizing the triumph of good over evil. Thus, the bornfire is lit on this occasion to depict the victory. However, this is merely one of the mythological explanations. The profound insightful revelation of this festival has a spectrum of different colours which are showered by the master - colours of love, wisdom, seeking, and it is then that the festival gets an entirely new meaning for the seeker. We are much aware of the outward ways of celebrating Holi, these talks introduce one to the inward ways of celebrating the festival of Holi, unveiling the meaning and significance of this celebration in a new light. Those who get drenched in this cascade find their lives coloured with the blessing to seek within.
