Join in 40 Days of Retreat


You are invited to participate in 40 days of retreat starting March 25th and led by Sri Vasudeva. We have been exploring his teachings for the past few weeks so you already know who he is. The theme of these 40 days will be “Lifting Maya’s veil – a guide to Self Transformation.” You can listen to the free meditations and talks in preparation for these days on sound cloud.

On the night of March 25th there will be a satsang at 6:00pm EST to launch us into the 40 days. Sri Vasudeva will introduce the theme, and a little about how he will explore it in the days ahead. Plus I think he will share in satsang, some of his experiences during the 40 days of 1978 when he entered the start of an amazing experience which left him in a state of inner freedom and bliss. There will also be powerful chanting which can be an entry way into the sacred space within. You can read more about that here.

On March 26th and every day until May 4th we start the day with a beautiful Sanskrit chant called the Guru Gita at 5:15 am EST, which is a hymn talking about the role of the outer spiritual guide and the waking up of our inner guide. Even if you don’t know the song, the vibration of the chanting can awaken subtle energies.

Then there is an inspirational talk and guided meditation at 6:15 am where he will give details about the self transformation process. I hope that we will discuss this talk here,  how we could live the concepts and ideas and may be we could help each other with the challenges in doing so. Transcripts of this talk and meditation will be available on the website of Sri Vasudeva’s organization www.blue-star.org

Then there is a silent meditation from noon till 12:30pm. There is another silent half hour meditation at 6:00pm. While these will not be streamed I am telling you about it so that you can tune in, if only for a moment, by simply thinking about it and taking a pause in your day.

At 3:00pm there is the opportunity to join in Sacred Conversation as the morning talk and meditation is discussed and practical tips are shared on how these spiritual concepts can be implemented in daily life. You can have your questions answered too by sending them in via the contact info on the Blue Star website. You can also post comments and questions here on the blog so we can have lively sacred conversations going on here too.

We end the day with a Sanskrit evening chant at 8:00 pm called the Shiva Mahimna Stotram and the Shiv Manas puja ending with a silent meditation. The beauty of the Sanskrit is the effect on the chakras.

Lets participate in some or all of the spiritual discipline during these 40 days as together we make strides on our spiritual journey. 16864734_1353612277994512_7347639737419263776_n.jpg
