Gurupurnima in Italy

Gurupurnima in Italy

  • Associazione Culturale Hairakhandi Love (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This year for the celebrations of Gurupurnima devotees are invited to the ashram of Hairakhandi Love in Umbria to participate in the celebration considered the most important by those who follow a spiritual path. In fact, in this period of full moon, in July, every spiritual researcher ritually honors his own Guru, the Spiritual Master, with immense love and gratitude. A great offer to fire is celebrated by everyone, in a ritual of union with the 
sacred feet of the Guru.

The ancient scriptures of India say that there is no difference between the Guru and God and that every sincere seeker can aspire to the final identification with the Spiritual Self only by virtue of the service rendered at the feet of the Master with unshakable trust and dedication. Those in search of the Good will only succeed if they draw upon themselves the compassion and grace of the Guru.

 

"In order to draw on that reality which is innate and natural, you constantly serve one Master!"

Beltane Bhakti gathering
May
3
to May 6

Beltane Bhakti gathering

The Bhakti Gathering is inspired by the example of wise beings who demonstrated how to tackle life's challenges in practical and embodied ways. Living together for a few days, there's plenty of opportunity to practice tolerance and patience through simple acts such as sharing a noisy dorm, taking a cold shower, fasting a little.... During our time together, each ordinary action becomes a ritual of thanksgiving, transforming the daily 'grind' into a coming home to our highest selves and to each other.  

Please join us to spend some precious time together. It is possible to experience exquisite joy and expand our capacity for love even in these most challenging of times . . . and through this, to have the courage to act in service and solidarity as change makers.
