In the depths of silence you can hear the voice of God. To be in silence means always to be in communion with God.

Paramahamsa Vishwananda

Experience a profound opportunity for deep silence, inner peace and communion with God in this 3-day Silent Retreat with Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda!

The retreat will take place in a beautiful Aalia Resort located on the banks of the Ganges river. Located in the national park it is surrounded by picturesque nature - tropic forests as well as lonesome stony valleys of Ganges. Long Japa walks, meditations and Yagna on the banks of the Ganges, meetings with the hidden sadhus in the forests - all of this is awaiting for us during the days of silent retreat with Guruji.

Aalia resort

Ganges is described in the Mahabharata as the ‘best of rivers, born of all the sacred waters’ and is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in all of India. During our stay in Haridwar we will visit Dev Prayag - astonishing place where 3 rivers meet together originating the Ganges river itself. We will take a dip in Ganges in this spot.

Following the silent retreat is a 5-day pilgrimage that trails the footsteps of many saints and sages of India. From visiting the ancient Shiva and Maa temples of Haridwar and Rishikesh, to visiting the sacred city of Vrindavan where Lord Krishna performed His most memorable Leelas.
