"I want you to close your eyes and experience the present moment. There is no anger or fear at this precise moment.  Let all the moments in your life be just like this one. Let the present moment sustain your life.  Let it become unending and eternal. It is so simple."

Swami Yogiraj Nanak

Dear friends and seekers ,

The most Auspicious time of  the year is now descending on us  and at that, all in unison : Autumnal Equinox, Navratri, Dessera, Rosh Hashonah (Jewish New Year), and to top it All off, Yes, Jayanthi, the Birth Anniversary of our beloved Gurudev Swami Yogiraj Nanak.

This is a very special and auspicious time of the year to make New beginnings and to make a resolve to get our mundane and spiritual life aligned and integrated. No time for being frivolous and using same old excuses for messing up and being pulled into the all too familiar lower realms that by now we know will not help us in our life journey. Starting today the Shakti is aligned on our side to help us get out of our inner darkness and glow into the Light.

Navratri is all about destroying the evil, demonic forces both within and without. Goddess Durga fought off for 9 long days the Demons and destroyed them All through her determination and to remind us how courageous and powerful we All can truly be.

 Are we ready to take this step and banish the darkness within?

In the outer world our mind is being warped by corrupt political leaders, even some people disguised as our well wishers time and again can throw us off and sabotage our attempts at  positive change. Then are we set to reach out to the Cosmic Shakti and revive our spiritual essence?
 In terms off Natures cycle of seasons, this is most serene time of year-the Season of "mist and mellow fruitfulness” as John Keats would describe. So let’s take advantage of the Gift of this Season and connect to our inner light by keeping our daily meditation practice strong and healthy.

We’ll be holding special programs to help in this process. Come and join us !
