What happens when thousands of people meditate together?

The world moves closer to achieving humanity.

Heartfulness Meditators from all over the world travelled to Kanha Shanti Vanam Ashram, Hyderabad, India to celebrate and commemorate three significant milestones for the Shri Ram Chandra Mission:

The 147th birth anniversary of Lalaji Maharaj, the founding guide of the Heartfulness practice;
The 75th Anniversary of the Shri Ram Chandra Mission and;
The inauguration of the world’s largest meditation hall at Kanha Shanti Vanam.

The celebrations were attended by over 110,000 meditators, 8,500 trainers, and over 25,000 youth. Guests of honor included the honorable President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind; Baba Ramdev, the Indian yoga guru and co-founder of Patanjali Ayurved; and P.V. Sindhu, India’s first Badminton World Champion, all of whom spoke about the significance of building humanity through meditation and expressed their gratitude to Daaji for his efforts in moving humanity forward through the Heartfulness method.


Over the course of three celebrations, meditators were invited to attend daily meditation sessions, led by Daaji, founder of the Heartfulness Institute, and to explore Kanha’s 1400-acre expanse, which includes a large organic farms, nursery, beautiful essential oil gardens, schools, residential apartments, and sustainable WiFi-free living.

Visitors enjoyed cuisines from all over the world at dining halls and canteens, and were treated to authentic pizza and pasta at Fausto’s, Kanha’s premier Italian restaurant. Visitors were also treated to multiple musical performances throughout the celebration.

There was a collective expansion of consciousness amongst everyone who participated in the celebrations. It felt as if visitors were returning to their regular routines with a new sense of resilience and adaptability that can only come from hours of inward focus and contemplation.

Whether they had been practising for decades, or had just recently found meditation, all agreed that they left the atmosphere of Kanha Shanti Vanam feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with the Heartfulness Way.

All are welcome to visit Kanha Shanti Vanam & experience Heartfulness Meditation
