Deepen Your Spiritual Practices

July 5, 2021 @ 8:00 am October 31, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Sri Badrika Ashram, is extending the opportunity to deepen your spiritual practices, beginning July 5th, 2021. A number of devotees have written to us to experience its quietude and serenity plus get a chance to focus, without the usual distractions or responsibilities of daily life.

Here, at the Ashram which many of you call ‘home’, come and spend time to either be in silence or to chant and meditate in the presence of the omnipotent, omniscient and ever-smiling Sri Hari. Spend quality time to discover your own thoughts, feelings and desires.

Please go through the outlined protocols and fill in the jot form below, to register your expression of interest or write to contact.omswami@gmail.com if you have any query.
