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.
What is the one bond of power that guarantees your permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation?
How is this bond of power attained?
Is there 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. So many scriptures and sacred texts also tell us that spiritual power is required in abundance, in order to reverse lifetimes of karmic tendencies that manifest as our present mental conditioning – our inner state.
How do we attain such spiritual power that will allow us to move the mountain of our false leanings and tendencies? By what means can we insulate ourselves 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
There are many myths and opinions about intention and the bond of power inherent in Guru’s Grace. We will also examine these and the myths will be debunked with the Blessing of fervent contemplation and direct experience.
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 we can renew our spiritual practice and lifestyle by reigniting the flame of our enthusiasm and longing for existence imbued with boundless Joy and Content. This happens by coming into contact with other devoted seekers and Sadguru Kedarji’s adept companionship as our spiritual leader.
This 7-day retreat will culminate in Sadguru Kedarji’s Shaktipat Blessing, our 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.
August 5-11, 2019.
