Once again, our beloved Gurudev will be celebrating His Appearance Day with the Bhakti Marga family in His home at Shree Peetha Nilaya. This year we have two full days of festivities planned from 13-14 June.

What to Expect

Festivities include special pujas, a 108 Maha Yagna, Maha OM Chanting, Maha Japa Walk and a few other surprises.

Time will be set aside to listen to wonderful stories and experiences told by devotees about our beloved Gurudev. Plus, this year we'll have a special Guru Bazaar where you can make a donation and take home a precious relic from Guruji's personal belongings.

Please Note: Participation in the Maha Yagna requires separate registration. Please register here

Did you know?

Paramahamsa Vishwananda was born God-realised on 13 June, 1978, on the beautiful island of Mauritius, off the coast of Africa. Almost immediately, people could see He was someone special. Even while very young, He enjoyed singing the Divine Names and inspiring all those around Him to love God. In truth, He has always been a living example of Bhakti Marga, the path of devotion.

What to wear?

Gurudev’s birthday is a colourful and festive occasion. Indian dress is encouraged, but not required. Women must wear saris or ankle-length skirts and bring a shawl to participate in the yagna. Men are encouraged to wear kurtas and dhotis, or nice shirts and trousers.


Thursday, 13 June

  • Guru Puja to His Feet
  • 108 Yagnas
  • Picnic in the garden (15 €)
  • Other surprises

Friday, 14 June

  • Maha OM Chanting
  • Maha Japa Walk
  • Other surprises


Most of our festivities are free and open to the public. Sponsoring a puja is wonderful way to say thank you to Gurudev for all the blessings you have received from Him. It is also a generous way to help make the event available to others and to contribute to making it memorable for everyone.

The act of giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. By helping to sponsor the event you reap the benefits from all the prayers done during the festivities. Even if you are unable to attend the event, you may still take part by becoming a sponsor.

Details about how to sponsor


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.

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

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