Every Fall we have the blessing of celebrating Guru Ram Das Ji's birthday. Known as the Lord of Miracles, Guru Ram Das embodied humility, service, and deep devotion. Guru Ram Das held a special place in Yogi Bhajan's heart. Yogi Bhajan gave us a special sadhana to do in celebration of Guru Ram Das's birthday.
September 28 - October 8: For 11 days prior to his birthday we chant the shabad Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur for 11 - 31 minutes. This is the Shabad of Miracles.
October 9th: This is the day we celebrate Guru Ram Das Ji's birth, when we have a special sadhana of chanting Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur for 2 ½ hours in the Amrit Vela.
4:30 am: Recitation of Japji Sahib and a short yoga set.
5:00 - 7:30 am: Chanting Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur for 2.5 hours
7:30 am Breakfast - dish to pass
Come when you can and stay as long as you are able.
Our collective light shines always, and our soul's radiance is a perpetual, powerful gift from the universe. Our hearts have opened the doors at Spirit Rising Yoga Center for this special Morning Group Sadhana once again. The light is on, and there is yet another space for your sacred practice. When we practice together, we magnify and multiply the elevation and vibration of peace and consciousness. We practice to still our minds, to better hear the voice of our soul.
Yogi Bhajan has described this occasion as a powerful time for the fulfillment of prayers and a time of great blessing. Allow the divine healing energy of Guru Ram Das to take care of you. We will share a “wish-and-a-dish” for breakfast after Sadhana.
In addition, October 6 marks the Day of Remembrance of Yogi Bhajan's passing. This is a special time to reflect on his life and legacy, and give thanks for his teachings.
There is no charge for this special sadhana. Any donations are always welcome for Spirit rising Foundation's scholarship fund.
