Kirtan 2015After the more than successful Festival in May 2015,  we will organize a new Bhole Baba Bhakti Festival with much  singing (together), music and inspiration. Dates: Thursday 16 August, 4 pm, to Sunday 19 August, about 3 pm. In addition, we plan Satsang [“Being together in truth”], that is, from our heart truthful sharing experiences and insights. You may also attend a yoga workshop.

A donation action for a charity is also part of this Kirtan Bhakti festival. The last time this was for Babaji’s Eye Clinic in India. For 2018 we have chosen a goal close to home: for the development of sustainable energy on the ashram, thinking of solar panels and collectors.

At the moment we are working on the preparation of the festival. This webpage will be updated from time to time so that you can find all current information here. Moreover, the developments can be followed via facebook of SadaShivadham Loenen (click here) .

We hope that in this way we can jointly give honor Babaji’s message of Truth, Simplicity, and Love for humanity.
