Anoopam Mission’s philosophy:
The Anoopam Mission undertakes its spiritual philosophy through a fusion of 'bhakti yoga' (the yoga of devotion) and 'karma yoga' (the yoga of action). Bhakti yoga is devotion to the Supreme Reality and includes prayer, chanting and meditation. But in actuality, it also goes much beyond this to incorporate a state of mind in which every word, thought and action is dedicated to the Lord.
Karma yoga involves performing selfless service - expecting nothing by way of compensation, gratitude or praise - and humbly offering the results of the work to the Lord.

The Anoopam Missions vratdhari sadhaks practice devotion by living according to every word of their guru, Sahebji. He instructs them to live a life that reflects truth, love, devotion, non-violence and compassion. He emphasises the need to recognise the Divine in every human being. Sahebji inspires the sadhaks to do this by serving humanity for it results in the service to the Lord Himself.
Under Sahebji's guidance, the vratdhari sadhaks perform bhakti yoga through various devotional activities such as organising religious celebrations, performing in the Mission's musical group (for singing devotional songs), engaging in the routine functioning of the temple, etc.
Mahaprasad will be served after program on both days.
Entry to both program is by RSVP ONLY.
