What is Enlighten Man?
We are gathering from all over the world to celebrate the enlightenment of humanity. Many different lineages and people from every nation coming together for yoga, satsangs, carnival and India’s first Enlighten Man burn on the beach January 15-26, 2018 at the home of Yoga, Rishikesh, where the Ganges River comes down from the Himalayas.
SATSANGS: Free evening music and Satsangs hosted by Sai and visiting Master’s, Guru’s, Baba’s and Yogi’s 8:00 PM at Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living Ashram in Rishikesh. Gurudev Shree Ameritji and other living legions of yoga will be coming by, and our favorite Baba’s. We will be filming it for the Enlightenment Show and our new Television Station.
THE BURN: It’s Carnival in Rishikesh. There are several other spiritual groups converging on Rishikesh, like Osho Kumb, and we are joining together, including our own India style “Burning Man” along the Ganges River on Thursday evening, January 18. Hindu’s have been celebrating Dussehra, burning a large effigy of Ravanna from the Ramayana epic, for centuries, so to celebrate the enlightenment of humanity we are building and burning a 35′ tall Nataraja – a Dancing Shiva – and after a world peace prayer we are conducting a drumming circle and inviting a trance dance on the beach that is open to everyone. There are also hikes, river rafting, and other events planned during these weeks.
YOGA IMMERSION: Mornings with Dr. Raj. For those that want to deepen their yoga practice while at Enlighten Man, we are working with the Maa Yoga Ashram to provide morning yoga with Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj, Yoga Acharya and Dr. of Ayurveda. Saiji will be leading Shaktipat meditations at the Maa Yoga Ashram after the yoga that begin at 9:00 am that is open to all. Those that wish to receive additional hours of yoga teacher training can get them here, as well as Ayurveda treatments and Indian cooking classes.
