Please come and celebrate Dusshehra at Yugal Kunj with Siddheshvari Devi Ji. It is a fun-filled devotional experience where the entire family will have an opportunity to understand the special significance of Dusshehra, sing devotional keertans, do aarti of Shri Ram, experience "Ravan Dahan" (burning of the effigy of Ravan), and enjoy delicious prasad. An event that should not be missed!
Nov 28 - Dec 1
To heal and rejuvenate the soul, it is imperative that we retreat every so often away from the world to practice devotion. Didi Ji will be leading a silent retreat during the Thanksgiving weekend at Yugal Kunj. A silent retreat means that the attendees are not supposed to talk to each other about worldly matters. There is plenty of chanting, discourses by Didi Ji, video pravachan by Shri Maharaj Ji, opportunities for Q&A, and devotional walks. The whole retreat is planned by Didi Ji in such a way so as to maximize the opportunities to do "Roopdhyan" and for the devotees to make good progress.
Dec 25 - Jan 1

Testimonials from Devotees
I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to you and the volunteer team of Yugal Kunj for a welcoming and peaceful environment at the Family Retreat. Yugal Kunj is a magnificent oasis for new spiritual seekers and a piece of Mangarh for Shri Maharaj Ji's devotees. I can say this because I felt sad leaving and the keertans kept echoing in my head for days after I left just like I always felt leaving Mangarh.
Rani, Toronto, Canada
Atmosphere is lively, prasad is delicious, premises are extremely clean, and temple has a friendly vibration that attracts everyone. In summary, I have found my Golok Dham. Jai Shree Radhey.
Raj & Dhruti Rajyaguru & Family , Atlanta, GA
I had heard a lot about the place from those who had visited but one can only experience the true beauty by being there. I enjoyed and benefited from everything, but the highlights were the early morning sadhna, waking up little Krishna, and ending the day by enjoying lighter moments with Shri Maharaj Ji. And how can I not mention the delicious meals:) The creativity, efforts, investment, wisdom and hard work is truly commendable. Looking forward to my next visit.

Yugal Kunj has brought profound effects of spirituality, art, music, and many cultural aspects in my two kids within a short span of time. Without Didi Ji and Yugal Kunj we could not have done it ourselves. Thank You!

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and Answers with Didi Ji
It is said that there is no such thing as love in this material world. What is LOVE?
Love is not to be confused with attachment of the mind. In the world, we form attachments wherever we experience, or even suspect fulfillment of self-interest. This attachment is erroneously known as love, and it is selfish by nature. True love is never selfish; it is absolutely selfless. A gopi loves Shri Krishna. As she fans her Lord, tears of happiness stream out of her eyes. Now the gopi must wipe her tears, so she curses her own happiness since it has caused an interruption in serving her beloved. Such is the nature of true love.
How do we move forward from past mistakes?
God and Guru do not look at our past; they only look at our present. So, if you seriously feel remorse for past mistakes and genuinely resolve to no longer committing them you will move forward and ultimately forget about them. Do not allow them to paralyze you so that you are not able to move away from them. It’s not helpful to beat yourself up about them either. You will only feel discouraged. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
How can we realize we are not the body, and dissassociate with bodily pain and pleasure?
We do have a body, and as long as the body remains, we will experience pain and pleasure. The more you realize yourself to be the soul, the more you will disassociate yourself from matters pertaining to the body. However, even an elevated spiritual person experiences physical discomfort and pain, and has to deal with such matters. His attitude towards physical matters, however, changes drastically.
Words of Wisdom
Close your eyes to see
You may have heard the phrase "Close your eyes to see" before. It has typically been used to teach people strategies on how to reduce distractions of outer influences and focus on the really important task at hand. Once a person closes their eyes, they start the introspective journey of reflecting on what their values are, what their experiences have been, what feels right to them, and helps them.....
