We convey our sincere thanks to the devotees of the above Yogoda Satsanga Dhyana Kendras and Mandalis who have expressed their keenness to host the events. During these programmes, sannyasis will conduct group meditations, give classes on the scientific techniques of meditation and on the art of balanced spiritual living. Gurudeva has always urged us to participate in group meditations and devotional services, and worship the Divine Beloved on the altar of commingled devotion, so that we may feel His loving and benign Presence in a more tangible way. Underlining the importance of group meditation, he said: "If your spiritual progress is at a standstill, or is ebbing, the practice of meditation on God or on any of the Great Ones, in the company of other devotees, will uplift you from your precarious state. The proximity of others' spiritual vibrations has the power of raising your own. Meditating with other devotees thus helps you to quicken your evolution. They inspire you on your climb up the ladder of Self-realization; and you, by your example, can also be helpful to them."

We shall be conducting three different types of programmes at the various places listed above — One-Day and Two-Day programmes wherein meditation techniques will be reviewed, and programmes wherein Kriya Yoga diksha ceremony will also be conducted.

In addition to the Kriya Yoga diksha ceremony, there will also be group meditations, explanation of the YSS techniques of concentration and meditation, spiritual counselling for devotees, a video show on Guruji, and spiritual discourses in order to strengthen individual resolve and zeal to meditate deeply and progress steadfastly towards our Divine Goal.

Eligibility for receiving the Kriya Yoga diksha at any of the above places is dependent upon submission of satisfactory answers to the Reports at the end of Steps I and II of the Yogoda Satsanga Lessons (enclosed with Lessons 26 and 52), as well as signing the Kriya Yoga Pledge of devotion and loyalty to our line of Gurus and the Yogoda Satsanga path. If you wish to apply for Kriya Yoga and have not yet sent these two reports, they may be submitted at the Kendra or Mandali where you would be attending the programmes, to be checked by the sannyasis upon their arrival in that city. If you have already sent your reports to Ranchi and received approval for Kriya Yoga in writing, please take that letter of approval with you for registering at the Kendra/Mandali. As you will note in the two Report forms, to be eligible for receiving Kriya Yoga, the devotee must have been regularly practising the first three basic Yogoda techniques for several months.

All who wish to receive Kriya Yoga diksha at the ceremony, including those who have received the Kriya Yoga Lessons but not participated in a ceremony; and also those Kriyabans who have received formal diksha but wish to attend the ceremony will need to register at the Kendra concerned at least a day in advance, and bring the required admittance card to the ceremony. Please bring and show your Kriyaban Identification Card when registering yourself for Kriya diksha and when attending the review.

For all the functions, information about the venue and the names of the contact persons is given in the Annexure. Food is being arranged for the participants by the local Dhyana Kendra/Mandali; and, for programmes lasting two or three days, accommodation for outstation devotees is also being arranged at some of these places. For further information regarding registration fee, accommodation, exact schedule, confirmation of venue, and requests for personal interviews with the sannyasis regarding sadhana, please contact the persons listed in the Annexure for the respective cities.

We hope that by participating in these functions you may feel the divine guidance and blessings in your spiritual quest. Through the soul-liberating teachings of Yogoda, may you become increasingly aware of the divinity that is within you.

As you continue to meditate faithfully and steadfastly to reach your Goal, may your spiritual resolutions and efforts draw inspiration from our beloved Gurudeva's encouraging counsel: "The more you feel peace in meditation, the closer you are to God. He moves nearer and nearer to you the deeper you enter into meditation. The peace of meditation is the language and embracing comfort of God." May God and Gurus bless you and inspire you always.
