New peacock chicks

New peacock babies have been born in Shree Peetha Nilaya :-)

One of the hens decided to lay her third set of chicks on a balcony of a resident's room, safe from hungry predators.



Once the chicks were hatched, it was decided that they should be moved up to the pen which was built to house the first peacocks that came to SPN, so that the chicks could be a bit more lower to the ground.

Happy chicks in their new home.

SEVA at Shree Peetha Nilaya

Feedback from Anjali Dasi about her experiences with the Bhakti Seva Programm




Anjali Dasi from Portugal is here in Shree Peetha Nilaya for two weeks doing Seva in the main kitchen. Helping to prepare delicious food for guests and residents. 
Here is something that she would like to share with you:

"Since I met Sri Swami Vishwananda all that I wanted was to come and do SEVA at Shree Peetha Nilaya. I first came as a visitor, doing 4 hours per day for 1 week, but I wanted to come for a longer period, as I felt here is where I should be.

Being at Shree Peetha Nilaya you sometimes get the blessing of seeing Sri Swami Vishwananda, but to be honest the moments where I most felt His presence were while doing SEVA. 

Immediately I understood that the outside task was truly being done on the inside, and by doing SEVA I was actually cleaning my soul, getting rid of the impurities that prevented me of feeling my true essence. Even if the body gets tired the soul really gets full with joy and love. 

Here you see the normal every day tasks becoming permeated with a new meaning and you know that you can have a 24h saddhana just by effortless being in your heart.
Doing SEVA at Shree Peetha Nilaya is an intense and deeply transforming experience that can impulse you to a rapid transformation.
In the end you just feel grateful for this opportunity to serve your soul."
