With Great Joy, we warmly invite you to attend our Celebration of Muktananda Paramahamsa’s Arrival Day (“birthday”), on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 from 10pm-midnite. Muktananda is Kedarji’s Guru.
Birthdays can be a wonderful reminder of the power of our existence here — to realize the highest, our true nature, the Self through our Journey to Joy. And Muktananda Baba’s is one of the most Joyful ways in which we can celebrate his “arrival” and presence on this Earth plane with Love — to show gratitude for the Grace that is extended to us in every moment, through our unbroken Siddha lineage.
Birthdays are closely associated with gift giving, and everyone loves celebrating them to some extent, making the most of the enjoyment that comes from the heart. For this reason, this special program serves as a fundraiser for The Bhakta School of Transformation, to help support our efforts as we continue to extend the gem of our offering for the benefit of all beings.
It is through the Grace and effort of Sadguru Kedarji, and the Grace and support of our lineage of great Sages, that we have the offering of The Bhakta School of Transformation. It is through the Guru’s Grace that we can learn how to approach every day as a “birth-day”…to see each day, and every moment within it, as a fresh new opportunity to stay focused on what really matters: the direct experience of living in a state of Grace, immersed in the inner peace, love and indescribable joy of the Self in every moment, from moment to moment, no matter what circumstances may arise around us.
Nityananda Shaktipat Yoga
In Nityananda Shaktipat Yoga, as part of the tradition of our lineage, the arrival day of a living Saint is celebrated as a way of invoking our God Nature by embracing the means to revealing That, in our self-effort at imbibing the instruction given. This is a joyous occasion of Remembrance. So, we also approach Muktananda’s Arrival Day as the dawning of another rebirth — as a very auspicious time when we give thanks for another year to glorify the Guru’s spiritual leadership in God’s blessing. As Sadguru Kedarji utters: “Grace begins with a grateful heart.” And what better way to begin a rebirth to greater spiritual awareness than that of honoring the Self together by joyfully giving thanks in this wonderful celebration of the Heart!
