SRI GURU PURNIMA, SADHANA WEEK AND
THE SACRED PUNYATITHI ARADHANA OF
GURUDEV SRI SWAMI SIVANANDAJI MAHARAJ

The Holy Sri Guru Purnima will be observed at the Headquarters Ashram on the 9th of July, 2017, and the 54th Anniversary of the Punyatithi Aradhana of Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj will be celebrated on the 18th of July, 2017.

In between the above two sacred functions, there will be a Spiritual Conference, known as Sadhana Week, for seven days from 1st to 7th August continuously, with programmes every day.

Devotees who intend to participate in the above programmes, are requested to write to us, giving complete Postal address, number of persons etc, arriving, to reach us not later than the 30th of June, 2017.

Persons with any kind of physical handicap, or health problem, may consider to avoid the strain of this concentrated programme and visit the Ashram at some other time. Further, this being Shravan month there will be large floating pilgrim population in the whole of Uttarakhand, disrupting traffic.

The period will be in the monsoon season when there is likelihood of heavy rains in this area. As such, devotees who are coming for the celebrations may kindly bring with them necessary requirements befitting the season, such as an umbrella, a torch and the like.

Due to difficulty in accommodating large number of persons, the Ashram has to request for rooms from neighbouring Ashrams. Guests may kindly bear with these difficulties and adjust themselves, lovingly. Devotees are requested kindly to come one or two days earlier only and also not to extend their period of stay in the Ashram beyond one or two days after the function is over.

May Sri Gurudev’s Blessings be upon all!
