The month of December has always been a special month for the devotees of the SBSRBY Universal Peace Mission Malaysia as this is when the devotees get to spend 5 whole days at a retreat with Shri Babaji. 2018 was no different. This year Shri Babaji arrived at the Rawang centre on 19th December and a ceremonial welcome befitting a Yogi was accorded with much love and gratitude.

This year's Annual Retreat with Shri Babaji was from 21 - 25 December at Virgo Batik Resort, Lumut. This retreat saw devotees immersing themselves in a couple of hours of meditation in the morning and evening. The day started with a meditation on the beach, an experience that energised the body and soul. Spiritual discourse by Shri Babaji and question and answer sessions were part of the retreat program. On 24th December, Shri Babaji graced the Gala Dinner held at the resort to celebrate the longstanding fellowship of the SBSRBY Peace Mission Malaysia. After the retreat 2 programmes were held in Ipoh. On 25th December at 7.30pm, the weekly Divine Raam Naam Sangeertanam was chanted by Shri Babaji and went live on Facebook. Then on 26th December Shri Babaji conducted the ceremonial bath or Abishegam for His Holiness Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj's statue at the Ipoh Centre.

All too soon it was 28th December and with heavy heart devotees sent Shri Babaji off at the airport, with the promise in their hearts that they would sincerely do their daily sadhana and be true to the teachings of their Gurus.

Jai Shivabalayogi, Jai Shivarudrabalayogi
