Marathon Meditation
Over a thousand aspirants gathered at the sacred space of the Ashram to strengthen their meditative muscle and traverse within through the Marathon Meditation programme. This three-day event motivated participants to progress on their journey of self-exploration through various meditation techniques, discourses, self-reflection worksheets, yoga and pranayama.

Arpita Bhandari, founder of Aikyam Wellness, led several of the meditation practices at this event. She is a certified Theta Healer, Crystal Healer and Sound Healer which has enabled her to devise techniques that have been helping hundreds of people. Along with her, sevaks of the Mission such as Atmarpit Maulikji, Atmarpit Shraddhaji and Jivanarpit Dr Mansi Shah conducted sessions as part of the Marathon Meditation.

The refreshing mornings commenced with Dynamic Rhythm – Meditation in Motion to strive towards peace, relaxation, refinement, contemplation and stillness. Aligning the body, mind and soul were the early morning sessions by sevaks of SRMD Yoga.

The late morning and afternoon sessions had insightful discourses by Pujya Gurudevshri where He guided seekers through the journey of meditation and provided invaluable practical tips. Arpitaji conducted several absorbing meditations such as Time Yourself into Timelessness Meditation, Chakra Meditation and Gaia Meditation. Atmarpit Maulikji and Atmarpit Shraddhaji took seekers within through the Trikon and Labyrinth Meditations respectively. Jivanarpit Dr. Mansi Shah taught the art of Connecting to the Universal Breath.

The threshold of dusk witnessed seekers practising reflection through worksheets and mindful walking. The evenings saw the aspirants participate in varied meditations like Discover your Power Animal Meditation, Transcendental Meditation and Sound Bath Meditation. Cultivating the feeling of universal friendliness the evenings culminated with Maitri Bhaavna.

The finale session in Pujya Gurudevshri’s august presence saw people connecting with each other through the Tandem Meditation. Arpitaji and her team were blessed to receive a token of love from the revered hands of Pujya Gurudevshri. It also witnessed the launch of ‘Strengthening The Meditative Muscle’, a set of 11 insightful, belief-changing and soothing discourses on meditation by the Master.
