FUNDRAISING PROJECT

Dear friends,

On the occasion of Sohamji's 81st birthday, a project was launched and presented at the Birthday Retreat. Through this, the community would like to support Soham's heart's desire, the expansion of the barn into a larger meditation space:
In addition to your contributions, the project also thrives on being shared via link, email or social networks - this is easily possible via the project page itself. The progress can also be viewed transparently at any time.

You can find out everything via the link below, and if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at donation4truth@gmx.de . A little hint: If you donate for the project (possible from 5 Euro), a voluntary donation for the platform is preset - you can simply set this to "zero".

NEW: "YOU ARE" FROM SOHAM

We are happy about a newly published gem which we warmly recommend. The new book has already been previewed:

"I am currently holding Soham's new book in my hands: Already the cover invites to be meditatively contemplated: A swinging, open cage from which a bird flies into freedom. Below it in large hand lettering: You are. "Treasure chest" this book is called in the preface. There are over 500 gems on more than 300 pages. They are written in English. Deep truths that can lead you into stillness.
The other day I came home from work after a "terrible" day and found the gemstone "A Perfect Life". This gemstone says, 'Every life is perfect. Every situation is just right to bring us the truth.' Wow. The heaviness that was there before was able to give way to a lightness.
The book is now at my meditation place. I open it, choose a gemstone and take it with me into meditation. Come back to HERE,' I read, 'HERE is okay. Come into HERE and look within. Is there anything missing HERE?'
In "You are" Soham - just like in Satsang - speaks to me very personally, he touches and conveys deep truths in a loving and clear way. You learn more and more who you really are."

You are from Soham • 24,99 € • Hardcover, 300 pages
To order via satsang@soham.one

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.

WHATS APP GROUP "SATSANG WITH SOHAM"

We have currently formed a Whats App Group "Satsang with Soham".
In the meantime it is again possible to participate in Satsang with Soham personally (near Kirchheimbolanden).
So now you can exchange information regarding carpooling or questions that arise in this regard.
If you would like to join this Whats App Group, please contact satsang@soham.one.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

 

MAIL TO SOHAM

Soham has decided to stop having his e-mail go through a secretary.
When you write to Soham (soham@soham.one) your letter will go directly to Soham’s computer and he will answer it personally. You can also write in German (deutsche-briefe-an-soham@soham.one). This will go to his secretary for translation, and your letter will reach Soham’s desk in its entirety. His answer will be translated and the translation will be sent to you.

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.
