Invitation to Special Spiritual Retreat


in Vrindavan, India November 11-17, 2007

You are invited to a very special retreat in English with Maharaj Ji at his serene ashram in Vrindavan.  Come and delve deep into life’s mysteries amidst the lush meditation gardens of this sacred land.  Located in Vrindavan, it is the birth place of Lord Krishna and the home of many internationally recognized pilgrimage spots with the Taj Mahal close by. There is a spiritual depth to the area that weaves a complexity to everyday life, which is typically not found elsewhere. The ashram grounds are part of the larger 50 acre Vatsalaya (Affection) Village, which is a dynamic social project spearheaded by Swamiji’s devotee, Sadhvi DidiMaa Ritambhara Ji. This is an intentionally developed village that nurtures women and children who were previously abandoned in life and gives them loving family, education, purpose in life. Newly born babies who were abandoned by their parents have been adopted into families here. Women and elders that also had no family are now mothers, aunts and grandparent figures for these children. These new families are given a nurturing home environment within the context of a community environment. The village is a holistic design and incorporates much more than just homes, there is a temple, ashram, walking trails, international school, vocational training center, store, hospital and research center, Naturopathic center and Spa, Ayurvedic center, plant nursery, cow shelter and dairy,
 playground, guest homes, dining hall, and more.  
Come join us for talks of life’s secret mysteries with Swami Ji and deepen your spiritual practice with meditations, breathing techniques, true yoga devotional songs, ceremony and ritual. 
During the retreat Naturopathy and Ayurvedic
facilities and services will also be available.

Great attraction for Vrindavan beacons them here and Vatsalaya gram provides them with some place to rest and supply them with their meager needs. These great souls bless the inmates of the Vatsalya gram. The complex consists of the following:-

house Maharaj Shri Kutia : Living place for the Param Guru Maharaj Shri where people from all walks of life gather not only to seek the blessings but also listen to his advices or Pravachans. There is a main hall to accommodate a large convention.

The term “retreat” means to withdraw, pullback or retire.
We may withdraw our body from our daily work schedule, or remove ourselves from a stressful situation or painful relationship.   But even if we are 1,000 miles away, our minds remain the same as we experience stress, anger in an endless chain of thoughts.

A True and Complete retreat is possible when you attend  a retreat in such a spiritual place as Vrindavan.  Such a retreat enables you to completely withdraw yourself from the details of daily life and takes you to different level of your inner world that can be completely free from stress, tension, depression, mechanical life, emptiness in life, fears, etc.

The focus of this retreat is experiential self-realization under the guidance of beloved Swami Parmanand Maharaj Ji. For the past 50 years Swamiji has been graciously guiding seekers on their spiritual paths. Swamiji is well known for transmitting transcendental consciousness to those open to receive his blessings.
He is considered an enlightened master to millions of saints and devotees in his native India. We are fortunate to have this opportunity to receive his teachings in the ancient holy pilgrimage center of the Holy City of Vrindavan.

This is a soulful journey into the depths of the rich spirituality of India and ourselves.
