Sharad Sangam is an opportunity to deepen one's understanding of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings and to receive the tools and inspiration necessary for spiritual growth. The annual weeklong event includes:

  • In-depth instruction on the science of meditation taught by Paramahansa Yogananda
  • “How-to-Live” classes
  • Kirtans and group meditations
  • Individual counselling with YSS monastics
  • Kriya Yoga initiations
  • and more

Programme

The Sangam will begin in the morning of the opening day and end in the afternoon of the closing day. You may plan your arrival and departure accordingly. Except for volunteers, devotees are requested not to arrive earlier than one day before the start of the programme, nor stay beyond one day after the closing.

Please note that only the YSS devotees may attend the Sangam. Relatives of YSS devotees and children under 15 years of age are not eligible to attend the Sangam. Also owing to the hectic and concentrated schedule of Sangam, we request the devotees with fragile health or debilitating conditions not to apply.

Accommodation

Dormitory-style accommodation will be provided to ladies and gents separately. Family members may please plan and pack accordingly. The accommodation will be within or near the Ashram.

Devotees with special needs for accommodation or diet may please make their own arrangements. A list of nearby hotels will be provided on request.

Allocation

We will try to register the devotees for the Sangam of their choice. If the number of requests for registration is more than what we can accommodate, preference will be given to those who are attending the Sharad Sangam for the first time.

Also, if the number of devotees applying for a particular Sangam is more than the number we can accommodate, we will try to register them for the other Sangam.

Devotees who will make their own arrangements for accommodation may participate in any one of the Sangams, as per their choice.
