Swami Durdananda's Christmas Message

  I wish to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas 

May 2014 be filled with GRACE and JOY

For some of you this year has seemed difficult and filled with obstacles, also some changes we thought we could not accept.  But 2013 was a year filled with the Grace of learning, because only by the trials of life can we learn to trust and move forward.

With each obstacle overcome our soul is refined just a little more, as we move towards the final rite of passage to Self Realisation.

During the Festive Season please contemplate the message of Christmas.  Christmas gives us the example of rebirth, a new clean and clear beginning.

May this message move into your heart to uplift your spirit and feed your vibration with love and compassion not only for others but also for yourself.

 Swami Durgananda

Swami Durgananda's October Message

We have just completed our October Retreat “Aspects of Grace” which was a great success.  Thank you to all the participants and lectures who took part.  

Being under the roof of the masters and other like minded seekers is important for the spiritual journey.

The ability to participate in discussions, lectures, chanting and live for a certain time in pristine conditions enables everyone to feel refreshed energized and positive that the wonderful adventure of Self Realization can be yours in this lifetime.

I wish you all a safe journey as you return to your homes interstate and overseas. My Grace and Shakti that touched you at the Retreat will be with you always. Swami Durgananda

Swami Durgananda Principle Samata YogaSamata Yoga Australia Theme 2013
‘Aspects of Grace’ throughout the year GRACE will be the basis of all teachings of Samata
 Swami Durgananda  
Spiritual Leader of Samata Yoga Australia
‘Grace’ comes in many forms, from the idea of giving it to receiving it.  There is wisdom and depth to all the aspects of Grace and I hope that as this New Year dawns you will contemplate ‘Grace’ in all its forms, the knowledge of “Grace” will be invaluable on your journey of learning and evolution.

In February I will be travelling to Castlemaine in Victoria.  On February 16th and 17th I am conducting a two day workshop titled ‘Unlocking the Profound Mysteries of Healing’ and I look forward to meeting many of you who are interested in this field.

In March we have our annual Retreat in Rosebud.  I am looking forward to this and hope that you will attend, as to be under the roof of the Masters is a great privilege.  It is also a time where the vibration of the Lineage is received by attendees allowing progress on your spiritual journey and an elevation of consciousness.  In Australia you have a chance to have access to the Guru and that is in itself valuable such an opportunity should not be missed.

Later in March I will be attending the ‘International Yoga Conference and Festival’ in Auckland where I will once again meet old friends and seekers.  At the Conference I will be giving four lectures and then at the conclusion I will be giving two one day workshops.

All the information for this year’s activities including registration forms are available on the events page on the website: 

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and wish all of you a very enlightening 2013. Swami Durgananda
