Gita Jayanti

Saturday, Dec. 3rd

5159th Anniversary of the Srimad Bagavad Gita 

Gita Jayanti is the auspicious day of the advent of Srimad Bhagavad-gita. This is the day on which Lord Krishna imparted the essence of Vedic knowledge to Arjuna over 5000 years ago and enlightened him about the ultimate goal of life.

As stated in the Gita-mahatmya, if one properly follows the instructions of Bhagavad-gita, one can be freed from all miseries and anxieties in this life, and one’s next life will be spiritual.

Bhagavad-gita literally means the song of the Supreme Lord. It is the most widely known Vedic literature in the world. 

The Bhagavad Gita is the essence of Vedic wisdom given by Lord Sri Krishna. His message holds the key to ending all of life’s misgivings and the secret to a life of happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment and self-discovery.

Diwali Celebration

Sunday, October 23rd 

Special Puja



Diwali, is traditionally celebrated  with a Vedic puja ceremony dedicated to Maha Lakshmi, the Goddess of Auspiciousness with  a special intention, a Sankalpa of  commitment to change ones habitual ignorant mind set and Dehypnotize oneself from the unreal to the real, from the un-truth to the Truth. 

This Vedic mantra reveals this essence : 

"Lead me from the unreal to the real, lead me from darkness to light, lead me from death to immortality” 

ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।

तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ।

मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

asato mā sadgamaya

tamasomā jyotir gamaya

mrityormā amritam gamaya

Oṁ śhānti śhānti śhāntiḥ 

Diwali commemorates Shri Rama after He kills the 10 headed deamon Ravana after overcoming endless obstacles towards that goal.Diwali celebrates this Victory of Rama who represents the Supreme Consciousness and Awareness we must all aspire to and merge in,and in  this very life as incarnated  humankind 

Oṁ śhānti śhānti śhāntiḥ

Maluk Jayanthi

Saturday, May 1st 

Message from Baba Maluk Das and Swamiji

on the occasion of Maluk Das Jayanthi 2010

"Dear Soulmates 

On this sacred occasion I invite you to ponder over the biggest obstacles on the path of spiritual development and meditation 

These are anger and conflict of desires.

Both of which emanate from ego.

An important point to remember in this regard is that the 

Mind is the bridge between the body and the soul so long the ego does not interfere. 

What is the way out of anger and conflict desires? 

I offer you the 2 "V"s to steer you clear of these obstacles 

1. Varagya -  a letting go, surrender, a touch of vulnerability, generosity of Heart

2. Viveka -  discrimination through purity of mind 

So today commit yourself to serenity of mind and generosity of heart through the 2 "V"s 

And victory is yours." 

With much, much Love 

Swami Yogiraj Nanak 

please note our monthly sadhana page for a special 

Maluk Das sadhana recording 

Jai Baba Sant Maluk Das !
