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

“Remember that the longer you practice meditation with intensity, the nearer you will be to joyous contact with the silent God. Intensity consists in making every today’s meditation deeper than yesterday’s and every tomorrow’s meditation deeper than today’s.”   — 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.

           If you are interested in participating in these programmes, you are requested to please register at least one week in advance at the Ashram Reception Office, giving your full name, address, Lesson Registration No., age, phone no(s), and specifying the date of your attendance.
