God comes at different times, in different aspects to remind mankind of the same essential teaching. The form is different, the names are different, but the teaching is the same. It is just always a reminder.

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda

Join us as we commeorate Jesus Christ, one of the great spiritual masters who had incarnated to teach all about the love of God!

Holy Saturday is the day between Jesus' death and His resurrection, the day of watchful expectation, the focus is on the Tomb of Christ.

On Holy Saturday, we do the prayers for the service of Christ descending into Hades, prayer for the dead people, and lamentations during the day. Later in the evening we celebrate the First Resurrection at midnight.

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
