Diwali is one of the most beloved celebrations in India. It is also an auspicious day for Yog Sadhan Ashram, as the Chicago Ashram was established by our Sat Guruji on Diwali day in 1992. This year is thus especially momentous as it marks our 20th anniversary. We have all be blessed to receive the teachings and community of the Ashram and our Sat Guruji for the past 20 years, and wish to invite the entire community to join us in celebration.

Please mark your calendars for Sunday, November 11th, 2012. Puja, kirtan and aarti will be held from 5pm to 7pm, followed by dinner. We hope you can join us!

Hershji gave a very informative and inspiring lecture on prayer during our 2012 Yoga Retreat. This is a live audio recording, so you will also hear questions and dialogue among the group. Enjoy!
