Pranananda Enters 40-Day Fast

On February 9th, Louix entered what was originally planned to be a 13-day fast, in honor of the upcoming Divine Romance Day and ceremony He would lead on February 13th, as well as in preparation for our Shivaratri ceremonies here at Prema Drala, in addition to His other personal and private reasons, known only to the Master. As always, whenever a Master enters a period of fasting, there are great blessings to be had by all disciples and devotees, as well as by the world at large. On this particular occasion, many of the disciples at Prema Drala joined Him for several days during the first week of His fast.

Unbeknown to us all was the Master’s imminent revelation (before completing the 13 days) that He would continue this fast for a full 40 days and 40 nights, twice the duration of the longest Louix has ever undertaken. A fast of this length is a most rare and auspicious event. It is for this reason that we wish to inform others, that they may unite with Him in consciousness at this time, to more deeply and profoundly avail themselves of the blessings that are available by way of this sacred event. Louix’s fast shall complete at 1:00 p.m. on March 21st, 2010, also the day of the Spring Equinox. Many have already spoken that they plan to again join Him in fasting for the last several days or for the last week of His fast, to again accelerate their own cleansings, and for the powerful, synergistic transformation they will derive by so doing. If you choose to be one of this cadre of souls, as always, “Listen to your body. Obey its requests. And, if you are not accustomed to fasting, please—by all means—do so with proper mentoring and guidance.”

May we all celebrate in the Oneness of His love. Thank You, Guruji, for doing this for us all. We are so blessed. We are so grateful.

Las Vegas Events - November 2009 and February 2010

On November 14th, Louix Dor Dempriey gave darshan to 85 people at a private home in Las Vegas. Louix entered the transcendental state of consciousness known as Samadhi, and, for the next three hours He gazed deeply into each person's eyes as He anointed them, at times delivering guidance and Revelation to some. Two days later, on November 16th, many people who had attended the Darshan, along with a new group of curious aspirants, arrived at the Sun City MacDonald Ranch (nestled on the city's southeastern outskirts) to experience yet another intimate “Evening with Louix.” He answered questions from the audience regarding spiritual concepts, lovingly guiding many through challenging life circumstances, and offering Divine pearls of wisdom.

 

 

 

In mid-February, Louix returned to be with His beloveds in Las Vegas for two more bliss-filled events, held once again at the beautiful Sun City MacDonald Ranch. On February 20th, He gave darshan to over 70 people, and two days later He led a silent meditation. Then, while still in a very God-intoxicated state, He traveled the room and anointed each person with vibhuti. After He returned to His chair, He answered various questions from the audience, delivering many priceless discourses to those in attendance. We offer our heartfelt gratitude to the spiritual community of Las Vegas for their wonderful welcome, service, and commitment to helping us share Louix's love and teachings with the world.

(If you were not able to attend any of these events, Louix will be returning to Las Vegas in mid-May for a Darshan event, as well as a One-Day Retreat! See above for more information.)

 

 

Louix's Visit to Australia - December 2009/January 2010

On December 8th, the disciples at Prema Drala Ashram bid farewell to Guruji as He departed for His month-long sojourn in Australia. His disciples and devotees from Sundara Aravinda Ashram welcomed the arrival of their beloved Guru in Melbourne, Australia. His daughter Ariel Ganesha also came to Melbourne, arriving one week later. His itinerary spanned four weeks, and included the following events:  Devotional Singing, Community Dinners, Movie Nights, a Pranayama, Disciple Training, Guided Meditations, a Q&A Session, Private Audiences, Media Interviews, and a four-day New Year's Eve retreat in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Guruji also shared meals with, and gave personal discourses and guidance to His disciples and devotees. Louix would often enter samadhi, and many people would be effortlessly transformed by the all-consuming love felt in His presence---a feast for the heart and soul!

 

 

 

 

 

On December 17th, Louix's birthday, He held a public darshan at the BMW Edge at Federation Square, an ultra-contemporary glass amphitheatre overlooking the Yarra River in downtown Melbourne. The auspiciousness of this day was evidenced by the blessing of a (desperately needed) heavy rainfall. Over 100 people flowed in to receive Louix's blessing, while Kirtan group Sushumna played the most enchanting devotional music throughout the event. Something very unique to this event---held in the central business district of a bustling metropolis---was that many in attendance had never been in the presence of a spiritual Master. This added a very touching and  inspirational element to the evening.

 

 

 

 

 

 

On December 29th, 74 souls arrived at the Country Place at Kalorama, to take part part in Louix's bi-annual New Year's Eve residential retreat. Over the next four days, participants basked in Louix's constant emanation of unconditional love. They partook in meditations, yoga sessions, and devotional singing, enjoyed sumptuous vegan feasts, and received guidance from Louix on many subjects. One special evening included a performance of meditative Tibetan bowl playing from special guest Garth Stone. Far more than ever before were great numbers of people having profound kundalini awakenings and experiencing shakti coursing through their bodies, merely by Louix's glance or touch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over 40 disciples and devotees gathered on January 4th for Louix's farewell dinner. This was followed by devotional singing, during which they expressed their love and gratitude to Guruji for the amazing past four weeks. Guruji hugged and thanked everyone and invited them to the 2010 New Year's Retreat which will be held in the United States. He beckoned all to go and spread the love and blessings they had received.

 

Louix proclaims 2010 as The Year of Adoration

On New Year's Eve, Louix celebrated His annual tradition of gathering with His beloveds to ring in the New Year and deliver His benediction for the upcoming year. He proclaimed 2010 as The Year of Adoration—the year to truly enter The Divine Romance (our love affair with God) like never before. As part of His guidance as to how each of us can deepen our relationship with The Beloved, He highly recommends that we recite The Everlasting Covenant as often as possible. He also recommends reading the book Miracle of Love (by Ram Dass) to vicariously experience the sublime devotion and adoration of which He speaks, and to see the all-transforming power of that love. Click here to see the full-length video of His dispensation for 2010, The Year of Adoration.

 

 

Louix Returns to Prema Drala Ashram - January 2010

On January 9th, in honor of Guruji’s return from Australia, the ashram held an intimate evening of Devotional Singing (with Louix as lead singer—a rare occurrence thus far at Pranam’s public events). Pranam led the music, playing favorites as well as some new songs. The evening concluded with some beautiful toning and “Oms” led by Pranananda, which left everyone in the most exalted vibration of love.

 

 

On January 23rd, a public darshan was held at Prema Drala and approximately 65 people attended. Pranam serenaded the room with devotional songs as Guruji blessed and anointed each person who came before Him. Many new faces joined us for this bliss-filled event.

 

 

On February 12th, we celebrated the holy day of Shivaratri. The disciples held a puja to our Guru (who was physically present) and sang devotional songs to Lord Shiva.

On February 13th, in honor of The Divine Romance—the day wherein we re-consecrate and recommit our lives to The Beloved of our souls, our Creator—Louix led a ceremony at  Prema Drala Ashram that was open to the public. It began with a meditation which held the theme of God adoring us at the moment of our creation. He ended the meditation by having everyone recite The Everlasting Covenant, and we completed the ceremony by singing "Hosannah."
