Mauni Amavasya Silence Retreats guided by Swami Radha Bharati will take place 26th January - 4th February and/or 4th - 13th February, 2019, at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG), Rishikesh, India.
Mauni Amavasya is 4th February 2019.
Please plan to arrive a couple of days before the starting date and plan to stay at least one day after the silence retreat.
This is with approval of the silence guide. Approval for the full 10 or 20 days of silence may be contingent upon prior systematic silence practice and/or experience in the basic practices of the Himalayan Tradition.
Swami Radha Bharati has been a student of Swami Veda Bharati's since their first meeting in 1971 when he introduced her to meditation. This life-changing event led her to meet and become a disciple of Swami Rama of the Himalayas in the same year. Swami Radha has extensive experience in teaching ethics and philosophy at several universities. More recently she has been both the Academic Director and a permanent faculty member of Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) in Rishikesh, India. She has taught and served as a silence guide internationally. She took sanyasa (renunciation) initiation on November 29, 2007, and is a mantra initiator and a member of the AHYMSIN Adhyatma Samiti, or Spiritual Committee.
