At Sahaja Retreat, a picturesque location nestled between a gurgling stream and the lush greens of a reserved forest in Rishikesh, yoga & meditation is all about finding the meditator.
Drop all your efforts and go beyond the constructs of the mind into the ever present space of pure being.
It is not a Ashram for namesake like plenty others in Rishikesh, which is the Yoga capital of the world. The invitation to Sahaja Retreat is not a promissory note with a reward at the end. As a seeker or explorer of the truth,here you are invited to sit, to breathe and to observe and who knows who the river will chose to share her secrets with while sitting silently by its banks or who the bird choses to sing her songs to.
Here nature is the teacher nudging you gently in the direction you seek ,a friend listening to you with infinite patience,an experienced traveller sharing with you the joys and travails that lie on the path ahead, giving you hope and courage in your journey. Here at sahaja retreat it is the nature which talks and answers your queries. All that you need to do is listen, listen with all your being and observe all that comes,and all that goes,and that which never changes.
The retreat is surrounded by Rajaji National Park on both sides, which hosts an abundant variety of Himalayan birds that can be a bird watchers delight and one may encounter a deer come to quench its thirst.Thever ripples nearby, as one sits on the beach celebrating the outdoors.
Unlike several other Ashrams where commerce has overtaken the spirit of the place and silence has been compromised by the cacophony of the bazar, sahaja retreat has retained its pristine and raw beauty by remaining totally focussed on the purpose of its being,which is to provide kindred souls a meeting place which reminds them of their true being,and encourages them towards their own fulfillment.
