Annual Sadhana Shivir 2024 (Ayodhya)

Updated: Apr 23



Introduction


Sanyasa is the path of renunciation, often associated with giving up worldly pursuits to seek divine bliss. Karma Sanyasa refers to renunciation through action, while Karma Yoga is about performing duties without attachment to outcomes, keeping a spiritual focus on one's Guru and God. While both paths lead to divine bliss, Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita emphasizes Karma Yoga for its positive impact on society.


Rupadhyana: Meditation redefined


Jagadguru Sri Kripalu Jee Maharaj offers a powerful yet simple approach to Karma Yoga. He recommends dedicating part of the day to seclusion, focusing on the divine form, attributes, pastimes, abode, and saints. This meditation, known as Rupadhyana Sadhana, helps the mind stay inward and connected to the spiritual realm. Just as milk curdles in a lonely place,consistent practice in seclusion makes the mind naturally introverted, allowing the practitioner to keep their thoughts on their Guru and God, recognizing them as ever-present observers and protectors, the real state of a Karma Yogi.


27-year-old legacy


Since 1996, Braj Gopika Seva Mission has conducted mega camps across India, focusing on Rupadhyana Sadhana and other spiritual teachings from Sri Maharaj Jee. These camps offer a unique blend of soulful sankirtans, guided meditations, and philosophical discourses led by Pujaniya Raseshwari Devi Ji and Swami Yugal Sharan Ji, the foremost preachers of Sri Kripalu Jee Maharaj. The immersive experience helps participants leave behind the distractions of the material world and turn inward, connecting with their true self—the soul.

Over the past 27 years, 63 such camps have been organized, benefiting thousands of participants by transforming their perceptions of life.

During Covid-19 also the legacy remained uninterrupted making the program available sometimes online, sometimes hybrid.


Held traditionally every year during the summer at a meticulously chosen holy site within India, this year's Shivir takes place in the sacred city of Ayodhya from 1st June to 7th June, 2024.
