WANTED - WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU!

Mikael, who has served us faithfully with full energy for so many years, is looking forward to backing off a bit. He will still be available to come to retreats where setting up the technical equipment requires someone with his experience, but he would like to retire from the day to day evening Satsangs and spend more time with his family.

Mahesh has stepped forward and been trained by Mikael and is performing the role of operating the equipment with excellence, but he is not available full time. So, we are looking for one or even two or three volunteers who are willing to be trained for this task who would be available to come to Madhubahn (Soham’s home) from time to time. All is flexible. Special technical knowledge is not necessary, but a general affinity with technology is helpful. English language skills are also welcome.

Madhubhan is the name of Soham’s small property in a village between Kirchheimbolanden and Monsheim in Rheinland-Pfalz, approximately 20 km west of Worms. We are looking forward to hearing from interested people.

Interested? Questions? Please contact Marga:

SATSANG DURING THE CORONA TIMES

As a result of the Cororna crisis, we will continue to live and work under modified conditions. Since March we had to cancel all Satsang events in the cities planned for this year. 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 where we broadcast an online Satsang almost daily. We are very happy that Soham can continue to be available and that we experience intense collectivity and connection through the digital media!

We would like to invite you to continue to participate in our Online Satsangs, which take place daily from 19:30. It is possible to ask questions directly to Soham online. At the end of the daily Satsang there will be a collective meditation.

From now on there is also the possibility to participate in Satsang on site. The Satsang room is open from 6:30 pm until about 10:00 pm. Since we can only accept a limited number of participants, we ask for short registration Phone: 06355 9799954 or Email: satsang@soham.one

The address (near Kirchheimbolanden) will be given upon registration.

RETREATS DURING THE CORONA TIMES

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.

The following retreats are expected to take place in the centers this year (the good lord willing and the creeks don't rise 🙂):
Center RANFT Suisse, Bad Zwesten and Oberlethe.
Further retreats will take place online. Current information will be published via the newsletter and the website.

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

See you soon, Namaste!
Soham

MAIL TO SOHAM

The second bit of news that might be interesting for you is the fact that Soham has decided to stop having his e-mail go through a secretary.
As of now, 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.
