Summer Retreat 2017 at Ananda Kanan in Missouri
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Namaskar!
It is my pleasure to inform and invite you all to the annual program of New York Sector, which is going to be held in the month of July 2017 in Ananda Kanan. Ananda Kanan is the blissful land of Baba, where every devotee feels happy and relaxed. The beauty of Ananda Kanan in the lap of nature, where every devotee will enjoy the divine programs during the blissful retreat. You are welcome to attend the Ananda Marga Summer Retreat 2017 at Ananda Kanan!
Ananda Marga represents a model of society based on spirituality and universal love, which stands on the sublime ideology given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, our beloved Baba.
Year 2017 is the new beginning of a new era. Society is going through a lot of transformation and we should always keep in mind that only spiritual force and energy will give the right solution for the present situation
Bádhá sá yuśamáná shaktih sevyaḿ sthápayati lakśye. [Obstacles are the helping forces that establish one in the goal.] We need moral force and collective spiritual endeavor in order to establish the glory of spirituality.
Fight against inertia! Break it to dust! Don’t let your mind indulge in any low thought! This is real courage. This the path of the spiritual warrior. This is the beauty of selfless action.
The retreat facilities at Ananda Kanan are improving every year. The natural environment is most conducive for sa’dhana’. By enjoying together kiirtan, meditation and devotional programs, sharing and preparing delicious vegetarian food and participating to the programs organized for the event, we will surely feel enlightened and close with Baba – to that love that brings us together as a universal family.
