Sadhu Paksha

This phase we've begun Sadhu Paksha. These two weeks are a time when the monks change their usual morning routine and instead enjoy their sadhana unstructured, walking and meditating among nature. These two weeks are also a time when there are no tours and the monks can withdraw from the public a little and instead focus on the within. Following Sadhu Paksha we will observe the changing ritau and transition into the cooler, winter season. With our focus being on the beauty and silence found nature's simplicity, we present some photos from our sacred gardens today.

Spiritual Workout App Now Available On Android!

Our free Spiritual Workout App is now available on Google Play as well as Apple's App Store, making it available on most devices.

The App was inspired by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's publisher's desk article which you can read here:
Ten Minute Spiritual Workout

While today nearly everyone appreciates the need for daily exercise to stay fit and healthy, many don't realize the need to maintain a balanced spiritual life through daily practices. The Spiritual Workout is designed primarily for Hindus who would like to maintain a daily spiritual practice, but who might not have much time to give to spiritual well-being. The app has four main areas: worship, introspection, affirmation and study. The Worship section includes mantras, chants and a Ganesha Puja (including audio files for learning). The Introspection section includes "Aum" chanting, a simple breathing exercise and a guided meditation. The Affirmation section presents several affirmations which can be repeated to positively reprogram one's subconscious mind, and the Study section makes available some of Himalayan Academy’s important publications. There is a "10 Minute Sadhana" section which organizes these four areas, as well as a simple timer for use in your own custom spiritual practice.

Meditation Hut Installed

Nirvani Adinatha has just completed a major side-project that he worked on here and there on his days off from normal duties. Nirvani is an excellent carpenter and can methodically build structures from scratch with relative ease. Let's walk through the installation of our new redwood meditation hut.
