1. Celebrations for the 145th Birth Anniversary of Pujya Shri Lalaji Maharaj and Preceptors Seminar

Dear sisters and brothers,

It is with profound love and joy that we announce the celebrations for the 145th Birth Anniversary of Pujya Shri Lalaji Maharaj, at Kanha Shanti Vanam, Hyderabad.

The celebrations will commence with the evening group meditation on 21 January 2018 and conclude with the morning group meditation on 23 January 2018.

Here are a few important guidelines in preparation

  1. There will be accommodation for only 30,000 abhyasis at the venue.
  2. We request all abhyasis to register only when travel plans are confirmed and bookings of flights/trains have been made.
  3. Once travel plans are finalised, please complete the registration of all the abhyasis and children in your party at the earliest, preferably by the second week of December 2017. While registering, please provide all necessary details, which will help in better planning at the venue. Please also update your registration information if there are any changes in the plans. A large number of cancellations happened just prior to the celebrations of September 2017. As a result, accommodation and food remained unutilised, and the efforts and costs involved were wasted.
  4. Each country, zone, cluster of zones or bigger centre, can send an advance party of about five volunteers one week before the celebration. This team will take up the responsibility of:
    • Communicating with their respective zones, etc.
    • Receiving their arrival information
    • Arranging transportation to receive them
    • Accommodating them in their respective tents, and
    • Extending whatever help is needed to take care of their comforts in reaching, staying in Kanha and departing after the celebrations This all will be done in coordination with the organizing team at Kanha.
  5. All abhyasis are requested to complete the new registration format, which includes online donations as well as online comfort dorm registration. This has been added for the additional convenience of everyone.

Note to Preceptors:

All preceptors who will be participating in the preceptors’ seminar in Hindi from 24 to 28 January are requested to register separately for that online at https://kanhareg.sahajmarg.org/register/e/9.

We are looking forward to working and coming together in joy and gratitude to celebrate Pujya Lalaji Maharaj’s birthday in a grand manner, and sincerely seek your cooperation in this regard.
