The rooms should be easily accessiblevia car, tram or bus and should ideally be situated on the ground floor (or otherwise have an elevator). A room size of 80 - 120 m2 would be sufficient. You are warmly invited to now send your concrete ideas or hints to info@soham.one as the tour plan is in progress at the moment.
A heartfelt thank you to all!

 

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.

 

HOLIDAY INTENSIVE IN KROATIA 18.-31.8.2019 (ARRIVAL 17.8.2019)

In the south of Istria, a peninsula on the Adriatic Sea, 120 km from Trieste (Italy), we have found a nice seminar house for 2 weeks Satsang at the Mediterranean Sea.
The Pension Cherry Blossom consists of two houses: the blue Pension "Cherry Blossom" and the red "House of Light". The two houses are almost next to each other. In the Dependance resp. "House of Light" is the seminar area as well as further guest rooms of the 4 star category.
The guesthouse is 10 minutes' walk from the nearest public beach and 15 minutes' walk from the second nearest beach. However, Liznjan has approx. 26 km of seashore with many untouched wild beaches and bays, which you have to explore and try! Approx. 25 minutes by car from there is the beautiful and popular Cape Kamenjak National Park: highly recommended for several visits, it is so beautiful there. You can swim and hike there.
Bicycle rental is very professional and is carried out on a large scale: with delivery and collection free of charge. Motor scooters can also be rented in the nearest village, Medulin.

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.
