Treasured Gurudev Stories – Online

with Rev. Paraman Barsel

July 6 - 27, 2021

Tuesdays: July 6, 13, 20, 27

Rev. Paraman Barsel was graced to be in the presence of the esteemed spiritual teacher Sri Swami Satchidananda, known affectionately as Gurudev, from the 1960s onwards. Join him as he shares enlightening, fun-filled, revelatory, and life-transforming experiences from his decades spent with Sri Gurudev.

Every encounter with the beloved spiritual master Swami Satchidananda was a precious moment outside of time that lifted students out of their minds’ limits to experience themselves closer to Divine essence. Put another way, whenever Gurudev “entered the room,” every molecule of that space was changed forever. This was not just the special privilege of a few disciples. That light of wisdom continues to grace us all, now and into the future. Some of the best Gurudev stories are happening right now or are yet to be experienced.

Live sessions with Rev. Paraman on Tuesdays at 7:30–8:45 pm ET.

You will have access to the video recordings.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
