Long Meditations - Dakshineswar

The more sweetening you put in water, the sweeter it becomes. Likewise, the longer you meditate intensely, the greater will be your spiritual advancement.

Long Meditation Programmes at Yogoda Satsanga Math, Dakshineswar

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

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

*Also, this year we plan to have a 36-hour-long Christmas long meditation from December 22 to 23, 2018. There will be 3 half-hour breaks between 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm and 8:00 am to 8:30 am.

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 Number, age, phone no(s), and specifying the date of your attendance.
