Jai Gurudev!
We are so lucky to have a Guru who gives us so many simple but powerful tools. Atma Kriya Yoga is Guruji himself, and it helps us to burn karma and develop that unique relationship that every single person has with God. The beauty of Atma Kriya Yoga is not only in the simple techniques, but in the way we practise those techniques. The beauty is in how much love we are doing them with.
Sri Swami Vishwananda is Love; He gives us tools that are Love and teaches us to be Love. How wonderful is that? I enjoy practising Atma Kriya Yoga alone but there is something special in practising it with other people, as we do in Shree Peetha Nilaya on Wednesdays in prayers time, or as we did in the Atma Kriya Yoga Retreat last summer in August, every day on the lawn.
Recently in Spain, thanks to the idea of Sitaram (Atma Kriya Yoga Country Coordinator in Portugal) we have begun an AKY regular practice every Friday at 6:30 hrs. It is organised via a special group in Telegram. Two weeks ago we began to do it with Atma Kriya Yoga sadhaks from Spain, Argentina, Mexico and SPN. Many people agreed, the practice just flowed and they felt the rest of the participants as well.
I encourage everybody to get together, no matter if physically or virtually. Just as Guruji is in our hearts, we can also be together in each other's hears and together, spread his Mission further.
Much love and a big smile from my heart.

The Just Love Festival
Jai Gurudev,
We are excited to announce the Just Love Festival taking place from 15-17 July 2016 at Shree Peetha Nilaya. Our Goal is for the Just Love Festival to be one of the best spiritual festivals in the world, and to be ranked as THE destination spot for those who want to enjoy an amazing three days.
At the Just Love Festival it’s all about the experience, similar to the path of Bhakti, it is not something that can be described but needs to be experienced.
The experiences includes listening to live kirtan, learning more about the “Path of Love”, eating delicious food, and making the pilgrimage to the Ashram, where thousands of like-minded individuals can come together and celebrate JUST LOVE.
Check out more pictures from last year and register at: www.justlovefestival.org

Bhakti Seva Program 2016
The Bhakti Seva Program at Shree Peetha Nilaya has openings available. If you have ever wanted to spend some extra time at the ashram, and be able to serve Guruji’s mission at his home centre, the opportunity is here.
The Bhakti Seva Program is the perfect way to experience ashram life which places you into an environment of continuous spirituality. The service that each one of us renders for the Divine is both rewarding, and fulfilling. When you do seva at the ashram, you get to see how your service directly helps the ashram, and the mission of Bhakti Marga.
The Bhakti Seva Program has different departments of seva that one can apply for. The areas include the garden team, the construction team, the kitchen team, and more.
You can visit the Bhakti Seva Program page via the link provided to learn more about the program and to find the best seva suited for you: www.bhaktimarga.org/seva/bhakti-seva-program
