THE BOND OF POWER
YOUR INTENTION AND GURU’S GRACE

Week-long Shaktipat Meditation Retreat
With Sadguru Kedarji and Our Spiritual Community

August 5-11, 2019

At Nileshwar Shaktipat Meditation, Wellness & Spiritual Retreat Center. 841 Boardman-Canfield Rd, Suite 302, Boardman (Youngstown), OH 44512. **This location is handicapped accessible.

Welcome to our week-long meditation retreat!

What is the one bond of power that guarantees your permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation?

How do you attain this bond of power?

Can you attain a state that no person, place or thing can mitigate against – a state beyond the reach of your karmas and life circumstances?

In this Kali Yuga age, it is said that the Grace-bestowing power of God is easily attained through a competent preceptor or Sadguru. Accordingly, so many scriptures and sacred texts also tell us that spiritual power is required in abundance. In other words, you need Grace in order to reverse lifetimes of karmic tendencies that manifest as your present mental conditioning – your inner state.

However, how do you attain such spiritual power that will allow you to move the mountain of your false leanings and tendencies? By what means can you insulate yourself against growing distractions, attachment, attraction, aversion and the ceaseless pursuit of sense pleasures?

And what role does your intention play in all this?

This week-long Shaktipat Meditation Retreat will embody a further examination of Sadguru Kedarji’s New Year’s messages offered over the last 3 years.

“Independence of will and judgement alone allow one to stand upright like God.”

~ Muktananda Paramahamsa

Today, there are many myths and opinions about intention and the bond of power inherent in Guru’s Grace. Therefore, we will also examine these. The myths will be debunked with the Blessing of fervent contemplation and direct experience.

Weeklong Shaktipat Meditation Retreat

In this week-long, Shaktipat Meditation Retreat, all of the above questions will be answered. There will be a lot of chanting and meditation in this retreat.

“There is a place within us that is so nurturing and sacred, so awesome that it burns away all that we are not. Bhagawan Nityananda refers to this sacred space as the Heart. He says it is the hub of all sacred places and that we should roam there. This is what we will be doing in the week-long retreat.”

~ Sadguru Kedarji

**In this very short period of time, you can renew your spiritual practice and lifestyle by reigniting the flame of your enthusiasm. In this way, your longing for an existence imbued with boundless Joy and Content will increase. This happens by coming into contact with other devoted seekers and Sadguru Kedarji’s adept companionship as our spiritual leader.

This 7-day meditation retreat will culminate in Sadguru Kedarji’s Shaktipat Blessing. This is our annual weekend Shaktipat Meditation intensive honoring Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri and the miracle of His Grace. For this reason, this intensive is named The Miracle Intensive.
