Sri Muktananda Punyatithi


On 24th of October 36th punyatithi of Paramhansa Muktananda was observed. Sharad Poornima is that night on which the moon rays have a very special medicinal effect. It is beneficial to get a peaceful mind and disease free body. In the memory of the great Siddha Guru of this era, 'Sri Vishnu Sahasranaam' was chanted and Arati was offered in His honor.

After this arrangement was made to boil the milk under the open sky. Once everyone had the 'darshan' of the moon in the boiling milk other ingredients were added to milk and the prasad was cooked. Once it is ready, Param Poojya Sri Gurudev added valuable saffron to it, and Prasad was ready. It was kept open for some more time exposed the moon rays. Later Param Poojya Sri Gurudev HIMSELF distributed the prasad.


On the auspicious 9th day of sacred 'Navaratri days', leading to Vijayadashami, AYUDH POOJA was observed on 18th October. This day all the weapons, vehicles, tools, instruments, appliances etc are cleaned/washed and kept ready for Pooja, after applying vibhooti, haldi and kumkum.

The special Arati of white pumpkin was shown to all the items kept ready for Pooja, not only in Dhyan Mandir but everywhere in the premises. In fact, the area is so big that one more pumpkin Arati is performed in the other part of the premises.

After the sacrifice of the two pumpkins, pooja was followed by Prasad. All present received prasad. Later the vehicles were taken for a short trip.


GURU RAKSHATI PARVATI ….. ||105 || Sri Gurugita :-

Ms. Pallavi Priya from US has written about her journey to Kailash Manasarovara as follows ---

 I hope Param Pujya Gurudev’s health is better. I wanted to convey this message to HIM:

In June, Nilesh and I went to Kailash Manasarovar yatra. This yatra would have been impossible without the grace of Sri Gurudev. It was a very difficult journey. After some time it was very hard to proceed. With every step I remembered Param Pujya Gurudev ji and that’s how I reached the charan of Mount Kailash. I felt that Swamiji guided me all the way through. My namaskar to HIM.

I feel that something has changed inside me after the yatra. It has been almost 2 months now but life hasn’t returned back to normal. I am going to the office, meeting friends etc. but that does not feel very exciting. It seems that there is some other purpose in life but I am not able to figure out what is it.

Then I got an urge to share my feelings with Param Pujya Gurudev. So writing this email to HIM.


After the Shaktipat

After the Shaktipat

* Ashirwad of Guru feeling, mind spontaneously variations, mixed feelings.

* I felt very peaceful and calm. In the end, when I put my hands on my eyes, I saw something dark blue.

* I felt everything got erased from my head, feeling more positive.

* I felt very good and all the negative energy and negative thoughts went away.

* Feeling light. I saw blue-violet light in my third eye.

* Vibrations started in the vishuddhi & I still have a pulling effect in the agya and sahasrar chakra & feeling peace & did not want to open my eyes.

* Nothing much felt little warm.

* I felt calmer than before and enjoyed the chanting.

* Thank you Swamiji. My heartfelt gratitude for this divine experience & your divine blessing. I have no thoughts of the past arising after Deeksha. During the Shaktipat, I could feel the energy rise & heal a blockage between my anahat & manipura. Now I feel more present & aware with more energy.

* I have experienced that something has gone up from my body outside. Some ticking has happened in the whole body.

* Flash of white light and emotional outburst. Very strong desire to liberate.
