Please save the date and help us spread the word!

More materials = more comfort = more happiness.

WRONG❗ Buying into this idea only conditions us to spend more of our lives on more stuff for LESS security.

Our scriptures reveal that contentment is actually found in the sacrifice of our comforts. 🔥 To live this vision requires dedication and determination.

Join our CommUnity in the CHALLENGE to be deeper. Nature keeps sacrificing comfort for us… Are you ready to sacrifice yourself by Dedicating to Devi? 🌎

Over the past 2 years, the Mentorship Program has nurtured trusted relationships and learning between like-minded seekers in the spirit of evolution. In its second year, the program brought together 150 seekers from over 90 cities!  Entering its third year, the program, now called the Mentorship Sanga, is accepting applications for BOTH mentors (29-45) and mentees (15-28) for this year's cohort! As one mentee shared, "It feels like having an older sibling or an objective view to help me with what I'm going through."

⭐️ Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, with priority given to applications submitted by January 23.

New social circles, academic stress, and peer influences.  High school can be a tumultuous time!  It can be helpful to obtain guidance from older seekers who have experienced similar challenges. On the joyous occasion of Dipavali, we will be launching a brand new initiative called Dial for Direction, where JCHYKS will have quick and immediate access to an Experienced Supporter of their choosing within 48 hours! 


🗓  Dipavali (registration opens Oct 24th onwards)

📢  Open to JCHYKs (Grades 9-12)

Our world is rapidly changing. 🌎 Between climate change, politics, and societal crises, it has been increasingly challenging to learn how to navigate the stress, anxiety, and dejection resulting from daily living. 🌀 Remembering that the purpose of our lives is to be happy has been slipping away more easily!

It’s time for us to shift our sense of grounding to that which is unchanging. Our Weekly Courses and CommUnities are designed for this navigating and relating. Beginning in September, these offerings will serve as the anchor of Knowledge that we need to be courageous and connected amidst change. 😌

There is a Course and CommUnity systematically designed for every seeker, both seasoned and new. Register, today! ⚓

A Mother's Love keeps on giving and giving... 

The ungrateful's life keeps on taking and taking... 

Our CommUnity IS Grateful and has expressed this feeling through Generosity, by raising over 100,000 dollars in under 100 days for our Universal Mother! 💚

At some point in our lives, we might wonder... Is there more to living and life?

Some of us may also inquire... Who am I? 

Through our sincere pursuit of such Truths, the Sadguru-shishya-parampara comes into our lives and compassionately reveals the answers to our deepest questions. In Vedantic tradition, such Guidance is given freely and such an experience is priceless. 

Still, out of gratitude and fulfillment, the student seeks to give back. 🧡 Guru Dakshina is an opportunity for us to offer our gratitude for the dedication-sacrifice-expression of our Guides.  

Please donate generously to support the causes of our Guru-shishya-parampara.

There is immense suffering in Ukraine. We can help in some small measure by supporting the efforts to provide hot meals, bread, and fruits to refugees in Hungary.

Let us come together to help those in need however we can. 🕊️
