Yatra to Gangotri and Uttarkashi

From 2nd to 5th June, Pujya Swamiji, sevaks from Parmarth, and other devotees went on yatra to Gangotri, the sacred source of Mother Ganga, in honor of Pujya Swamiji’s 60th birthday on June 3rd.  On the way up to Gangotri, the group stopped in a beautiful place along the banks of Bhagirathi in Uttarkashi.

The entire realm of nature is composed of five basic elements, each one inseparable from the others. These elements are: earth (Prithvi), water (jal), air (vayu), fire (agni) and sky (akash).

As these forces are what give us life and sustain us, we...

Ram Navami Blessings: The Message of Bhagwan Rama’s Life

On Ram Navami we celebrate the divine time when Bhagwan Vishnu manifested on Earth in the form of Bhagwan Rama. The Ramayana gives us the message of Bhagwan Rama’s life and teachings. The word “Rama” literally means one who is divinely blissful and who gives joy to others, and one in whom the sages rejoice. It is said that the repetition of his name (Rama Nama) is the surest, fastest and easiest way to attain purity, peace, wisdom, understanding, joy, prosperity and ultimately liberation.  Bhagwan Rama Himself said, “Repetition of My name...
