    Nice to find our Singapore ashram’s Retreat programme on 27th March 2016.
    Great is the lively presence of Swami Supriyanandaji and his young devotees and children in the Retreat programme.
    Eager to hear what the Swami and Mataji are going to speak to the aspirants.

      Dear Tatpurushananda
      Yes, the participation of brother monk Supriyanandaji and the devotees from Malaysia had an electrifying effect. The atmosphere was elevating. What did the speakers say in the Retreat programme will be placed in our next SingaSpeaks’ edition. I shall duly upload those pages also in due course.
      Jai Sri Ramakrishna!
      Swami Vimokshananda

    Pranam to Maharaj.
    Greetings to our Singapore brothers and sisters.
    This Retreat sounds like a heavenly treat! Am sure it will be of great benefit to all.

      Dear Nirmala
      Indeed so! The feedback that I am receiving on the Retreat is just beyond my imagination. Scores of devotees found it interesting and inspiring. A group of 67 devotees from nearby Malaysian towns along with the Head of our Kuala Lumpur centre joined us. It was a treat to hear them.
      Jai Sri Ramakrishna!
      Swami Vimokshananda


  3. Heavenly it was! Like following the pied piper…devotees and children.
    Pardon me, Swamiji for my very own anomalies during the hosting of the event.
    Hearty pranam!

      Dear Shubha
      You did very well as Master of Ceremonies during the Retreat program.
      I didn’t find any anomaly.
      Perhaps you were a little tired as you just returned the previous night from your week-long tour! In spite of it, you joined the program and did your allotted duty was praiseworthy! May Master bless you!
      Swami Vimokshananda


  4. Pranam Maharaj!
    The Spiritual Retreat was wonderful. The day was full of bliss.
    The discourse by Shri Swami Satyalokanandaji giving practical insights from life of Swami Ranganathanandaji underlining fact every work is important and one should have feeling that the work we are doing is for Thakur along with story of the person who was sweeping floor at Sarda Math was blissful in enlightening the mind with attitude of work. He also gave wonderful example how can we be with Thakur while reading stories from Gospel.
    Shri Swami Supriyanandaji gave beautiful lecture on concentration. The gems of wisdom were flowing from his mouth as he was highlighting we all have concentration and the necessity is to exercise it. It becomes evident when we do work which we like and we forgot time and space when we get absorbed in it like reading a book when we like the story or playing a game when are fully absorbed in it, we never realize how much time has elapsed.
    Mataji gave beautiful examples that God can help only those who are willing to help themselves.
    The discourse on Japa by you, Maharaj was wonderful and it answered many questions highlighting the essence of Japa, how to do Japa and Japa count etc.
    The question-answer session was also enlightening and the wonderful answer you gave to questions of confusion about worship of Istadevata, Kuldevata and other Devata worship dispelled the clouds of doubts and enlightened us all.
    I should say that we all are grateful to you for organizing such wonderful Retreat.
