The annual sojourn to Dehradun in September is to celebrate the Birthday of our Living Yogi, Shri Shiva Rudra Balayogi Maharaj. Besides partaking in the daily morning pooja and mantra recitation lead by Shri Babaji, devotees used these precious days at the Ashram for their spiritual contemplation and discovery. A bonus in this year’s Yatra was the journey to Rishikesh for a dip in the Holy Ganges River and to witness the Ganga Aarthi at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh.

Participating in the Ganga Aarthi was truly a soul stirring, priceless experience, never to be forgotten. 19th and 20th September saw the Dehradun Ashram filled with devotees from India and overseas, participating in the Paatha Pooja for Shri Babaji, the Maha Agni Hotra Pooja, donation of sweaters to needy schoolchildren, the opening of the Mata Parvathamamma Vidhya Mandhir in the Ashram by Shri Babaji and the Grand Evening Birthday Function. Bhajans filled the Ashram and annathanam was served so lovingly.

The 65th Birthday celebration of our Living Guru concluded and the Malaysian devotees, filled with gratitude and love in their hearts, silently sought the Grace and Blessings of Shri Babaji for yet another opportunity in 2020 to celebrate His Birthday.

Jai Shivabalayogi Maharaj
