CHRISTMAS / NEW YEAR RETREAT 2021/2022

The Christmas / New Year's Retreat with Soham will take place ONLINE ONLY.

To our regret we have to cancel the presence event of the CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR RETREAT at HOF OBERLETHE at short notice. The new legal situation in Lower Saxony allows only 2G plus for on-site participation, this now excludes the presence for part of the guests and the team.

We would now like to cordially invite you to the online retreat Christmas/New Year here from Madhubhan and look forward to a beautiful intensive retreat.

All those who have already registered for the retreat in Oberlethe are welcome to rebook their participation for the online retreat.

BIRTHDAY-THANK-YOU

Dear friends

Soham was delighted from the bottom of his heart with all the little video clips, all the precious, sweet and loving gifts and such personal congratulations on his 80th birthday and thanks you for them.

The touching birthday video with your contributions that was put together by Vimukto is just wonderful! Unfortunately, due to the large number of clips sent in, we were not able to include all of them.
But we would like to show you the result 🙂.

Heartily Soham Marga and Team

SATSANG DURING THE CORONA TIMES

Due to the Corona crisis we will continue to live and work under changed conditions. In order to be able to face the new situation in the longer term, we have created a satsang room in Soham's home "Madhubhan", from which we broadcast online satsang almost daily. We are very happy that Soham can continue to be available and that we can intensively experience community and connectedness through digital media!

We would like to invite you to continue to participate in our online satsangs, which usually take place from Wednesdays to Sundays from 19:30. It is possible to ask questions directly to Soham online, as well as to have a direct conversation with him via Skype.
At the beginning of the daily Satsang, a joint meditation takes place live online from 19:30 - 20:00. This is also offered on Satsang free days. Exception is Monday and the time during a retreat.

We are reopening for in-person attendance on site with negative test present. AHA sanitary regulations apply on the premises. Due to limited number of places we ask for timely registration under: Tel: 0179 - 101 73 79 or Email: satsang@soham.one

Thank you 🙂

The satsang room will be open from 18:30 until about 22:00.
The address (near Kirchheimbolanden) will be given upon registration.

A PILGRIMAGE IN CHANGE
Soham in May 2020

This corona virus brings many things to light. Something that is evident in my life is the realization that traveling from city to city, as I have done with great joy for the past 20 years, should come to an end - a long pilgrimage lies behind me. Life is short and we should use every moment to get closer to God and not waste a single moment by taking something further just because we have done it in the past.

So the coronavirus gave me an impulse in a new direction. Now and in the future I will be available for you all in a different way: Instead of on location, in the cities, I will be online for you from my home. I can also meet you in my house if the situation allows it. We will try to reopen the daily Satsangs for those who want to be face to face with me.
I will also continue to offer regular retreats and answer emails.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart to all supporters, to all friends of the soul.to all soulmates.

See you soon, Namaste!
Soham

SO, WHAT DID YOU BRING BACK FROM INDIA, SOHAMJI?

I received so many gifts during my visit to Swamiji. Most of these gifts can't be seen or talked about because they are not of this world, but I can tell you some things:
My capacity to receive the blessings from the Divine has increased. And, I have notice that this is what everyone who went to Dandi received, and most likely everyone who participated in the Anushthan from Germany as well.
I did learn some practical things that have helped my tremendously. I learned that all spiritual progress begins with satisfaction. This is something that all of us who are living in the West need to expand. The Indians seem to have this more naturally (or this is a by-product of being with Swamiji for a longer period of time). Here in the West we are truly rich in a material way but we aren’t satisfied…we have all of the luxuries but can't enjoy what we have. In India, they have much less than we have but are happy in the moment.
Swamiji says that this has to do with the Nabhi chakra 3.Chakra/Solar.
I have been playing with this and notice how much better meditation is when I am simply enjoying the moment, not wanting anything more, not even wanting a good meditation. 😊
Also, I experienced how powerful it is to be a part of a huge collectivity. We were 28,000 people together for Swamiji’s discourse on the day of Mahashivratri, and the energy was amazing. But what is even more amazing, is that I suddenly had a greater capacity to receive the grace that was pouring into me.
Anyway, everything that I received in Swamiji’s presence wants to be shared with as many people as possible. So, don’t think that you missed anything. I have carried all of these gifts with me back to Germany with the desire to share them with everyone who wants to receive.
There is so much more to share and I am sure that many details will naturally flow out of me as the days go on, but let me tell you a few things about the German ashram project.
As you probably know, Swamiji as energized a “Murti” especially for us and it is very sweet. Marga said that she just felt like cuddling it when she saw it.
What was especially touching is the generosity of the Indian Sadhaks and Sadhikas. The Indians who were part of the 45-day Anushthan, took up a collection for the German Ashram and Guru Shakti Dham. Tears of joy well up in my eyes from this gracious gesture.

MEANING OF THE NAME SOHAM

The name Soham means: The presence of divinity in each soul. I am That.

It is kind of a long story how I came to ask for a new name from Swamiji. It started when I was invited to attend a retreat in India. 

I had a total and immediate resonance with this extraordinary being and with what he is offering, namely “Samarpan meditation”. So, the name Samarpan suddenly became a confusion as we are suddenly all busy with practicing and sharing Samarpan meditation. And Swamiji’s ashrams are all named Samarpan. So as my last act of ‘Samarpan’ (meaning ‘surrender’), I surrendered this lovely name and adopted the name Swamiji gave me: Soham.
