  • Usha Pooja

  • Adhyatma Ramayana Recitation

A unique Prakriti Pooja will be conducted in memory and honour of the departed souls who left their mortal bodies at Kedarnath due to the natural devastation, resulting from mankind’s callous attitude towards nature. It will be done at Gokulam Vrindavan , a beautiful orchard being developed at Ramagiri with more than 1000 trees to preserve nature.

Join us in remembering the graciousness of nature which allowed life on Mother Earth and in worshipping the Lotus Feet of Guru, who guides us through our lives.

Its original name is Sanaathana Dharma or The Eternal Law. There is no exact English word that equals the term Dharma. Its meaning extends from the moral code of human beings to the instinctive and compulsory nature of animals to the forces that maintain the sun and moon in their orbits. Continue reading

Gokulam Vrindavan Ramagiri Inauguration

Swami Krishnananda Saraswathi inaugurated a huge orchard at Ramagiri spanning 11 acres on 24 June, 2013. It will house various plants including mango, ayurvedic plants, etc. It will promote greenery and the natural environment.

Pray For Flood Victims

“World Is One Family”

Jai Sita Ram.

Poetry on Bali

When our parents are in form
They guard our feet from wayward storm;
Now in spirit they still feel
Thirst for water and for meal.
As a stone is turned to God
By the power sage bestowed,
So our parents can be raised
To the status of Highest
By the rites known as Bali
That have come traditionally
But infused with divinity
By the Saint of Ramagiri.

Swami Dayananda Saraswathi (Suraj Sahay)
