These retreats include group meditations, satsanga, review of meditation techniques by YSS sannyasis. The participants are requested to maintain silence during the retreat to deepen their attunement with God and Gurus and to build their inner environment.

If you are interested in participating in any of these retreat programmes, please register at least one week in advance at the Ashram Reception Office, giving your full name, address, Lesson Registration Number, age, phone no(s) and arrival and departure date and time. For the retreat at Telary participants have to reach directly at our Telary Ashram on the evening before the starting date.

We would like to inform devotees that the retreat centres at Dihika, Telary, and Serampore are available round the year. As we know, Dihika is the site where Gurudeva sowed the seeds of his sacred worldwide mission.

LONG MEDITATION PROGRAMMES

At Yogoda Satsanga Math, Dakshineswar

“Meditate intensely and long in order to become an adept. In intense and long meditation you will have many wonderful spiritual experiences. Don’t spill the milk of silence after gathering it in the pail of your concentration. You should remain calm and retain that silence within, ready to use it during trials and to convince God that you love Him as the only real joy.”

— Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda.

Note: The programmes will comprise of prayer, reading, chanting, and meditation. There will be a break of half-an-hour in between.

Devotees with cough and cold are requested to please abstain from attending the long meditation.

It is extremely important that during the entire session, each devotee makes an extra effort to sit completely still. In this group endeavour, restless movements and any sound could disturb the devotees present.
