The Sanskrit word “Prashant” means absolute peace, “Jivan” means life and “Darshanam” means vision or to see. Thus “Prashant Jivan Darshanam” means Vision of life for absolute peace or vision that bestows absolute peace in life.
The retreat envisages the teachings both theory and practical of a great personality “Baba Shantananda” who preached in India for 14 years, and for the last 16 years he has been living a secluded life in the Himalayas.The purpose is to spread the wisdom so people can help guide themselves.
How it goes – People can directly visit the place where Baba Shantananda lived and preached. At present Naresh ji; a direct disciple of Baba Shantananda lives there and guides the aspirants. There is no fee for any teaching. People are provided free food, stay and teaching. But it is important to know that it is only open to men for now for several reasons. We are trying to organize this for woman also but this will take time. The place is very remote and staying there is almost like living as primitive people.
Apart from that there are worldwide coordinators who have received this knowledge. They teach for the sake of service only. They can be personally contacted for the teaching. According to their nationality, place, circumstances and so on, they can decide how to organize the retreat. In any case no teacher is allowed to receive any fee for the teaching. However voluntary payment for the sake of respect and offering in exchange of teaching is accepted.
Worldwide Coordinators – Very soon we will add more names and contacts of the coordinators who can be contacted for the lessons.
