We are blessed to once again celebrate Hanuman Jayanti and Babaji’s Birthday on Saturday, April 4th.  Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated on the full moon and includes rituals that praise Hanuman through puja, prayer, and chanting works such as the Sundar Kand, the fifth book of the Ramayana, dedicated to the adventures and heroic acts of Hanuman the divine servant. The schedule includes:


·         6 AM Arati at Hanuman Temple

·         7 AM Kirtan Parade around MMC


·         8:30 AM Sundar Kand Recitation

·         11:00 AM Puja and Yajna Fire


·         1:00 PM  Bhoj


Our tradition of celebrating Babaji’s birthday along with Hanuman Jayanti arose after our Hanuman Temple was dedicated at Mount Madonna Center on April 11th, 2003, which was actually Babaji’s 80th Birthday. Babaji was born on the auspicious 9th day of the Lunar cycle known as Ram Navami- the day for celebrating the birth of Lord Ram. Five days after Ram Navami is the full moon for celebrating Lord Hanuman. Babaji was always very evasive about allowing us to celebrate his birthday on Ram Navami, but we found a way to do so by coupling it with Hanuman Jayanti. Thus began of our tradition. 


Though Babaji will not be present, we encourage you to please join us for this very special opportunity to celebrate the 12th Birthday of our Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple and the 92nd birthday of our beloved Guru. Babaji’s inspiration, love, and support have brought blessings and grace into the lives of so many people for very many years. Come and celebrate with us as we honor and express our deepest gratitude, respect, and heartfelt love for Babaji. 

Jai Hanumanji Ki Jai

Shivaratri is a night that celebrates the Hindu deity Shiva as a manifestation of the Pure Conscious Principle. Traditionally, Shiva Ratri is observed on the lunar fortnight, when the moon is waning, in the western months of February or March. To devout practitioners, this night is considered a time of consecration, dedication, and intensive Sadhana practice with an aim of spiritual awakening.


In 2015, Shivaratri will be celebrated on Tuesday, the 17th of February into Wednesday, the 18th. All are welcome.

Hara Hara Mahadev!

This small group retreat is devoted to a deeper level of meditation and purification practice for people who already have had some Yoga experience.  To help calm the mind and allow it to turn inward, we will utilize a light diet of pure foods, a variety of purification practices, an observance of silence, and a meditative cave-like atmosphere of seclusion, all designed for inner reflection. A number of hours each morning and afternoon will be devoted to prescribed meditations, breathing exercises and practice of asana in the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Baba Hari Dass.  Time for reflection and study, spiritual stories, rituals, chanting of mantra and other devotional practices are also part of this special retreat. Because this type of practice deepens as we immerse ourselves, we give first priority to those who are able to attend the full program. Enrollment is limited, please register early.
