Vision of devotion and joy: Thanksgiving retreat with Siddheshvari Devi (Part 1)

Thanksgiving retreat with Siddheshvari Devi at Radha Madhav Dham 3

The thanksgiving retreat with Siddheshvari Devi, senior disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and founder of Radha Madhav Society was among the most well attended and joyous retreats at Radha Madhav Dham so far. An awakening of the great value of Indian culture, heritage and spirituality for kids and parents was received by attending this extraordinary retreat. Kids experienced pride in being Hindu, and the whole family had a new devotional way to share time together.

Siddheshwari Deviji has delighted families every year with her loving and fun filled retreats. At this retreat, families from across Texas enhanced their understanding of Hindu philosophy, and learned how to bring it into their everyday life. They heard thought provoking speeches by Siddheshwari Deviji and got all their devotional questions answered.

Participants also learned how to do roop dhyan, a meditation on the loving form of Radha Krishn, as thought by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. The retreat included activities like yog, nature hikes, outdoor chanting, parikramas and a special Thanksgiving celebration to bring everyone together in enjoyment as one big happy family. The retreat was hosted at Radha Madhav Dham in Austin Texas, the official center of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj in the west.

This was a great opportunity for retreat participants to meet other Indian families who also wanted to enrich their family lives in learning about Hindu spirituality; and to experience the peace and serenity of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj's ashram.
