Men’s Silent Retreat
23-25 February
with Brahmacharis Aditya & Devendra

Silence is the altar of Spirit,” said Paramhansa Yogananda. The first experiment toward knowing oneself, therefore, begins in silence.

Life is a busy whirl of “doing” and in all the doing we often forget the “being”. We forget what it is to live in true joy, true peace, true love… not merely as an outcome of fortunate circumstances but as a conscious unfoldment of our natural way of being.

This silent retreat will help us connect with our forgotten or hidden Self. We will have two and a half days of deep inspiration through immersing ourselves in spiritual practices, inner conversations with the Divine, uplifting satsangs and more. It is a time to renew our self, to listen and respond to the call of our common Father.

To paraphrase the words of Yogananda, in our silence, may God’s silence cease.

We invite you to join us on this journey of self-discovery. It will be fun and entertaining. We’ll never know how much God loves to play with us until we go within!

The retreat cost is Rs 3,500 per person for a shared room, all-inclusive.
