Great Beginnings at Ancient Oaks Satsang June 2015 | Volume 43 #2 | New Era 72

When I came to Ancient Oaks last December, while in Baltimore for a visit, I felt as though the land was calling out to me, asking me to come be here, to be part of it. On that trip I was only able to stay for a few hours at the farm. When I left the feeling stayed with me and I knew I would be back. A few months later I was able to return in the dead of winter when nature was silent and sleeping under a blanket of snow. Still I felt as if something were speaking to me, quiet though it was. As the weather warmed and the snow melted away the voice grew stronger, growing with the pasture, the forest and the garden as they took on new life and became green again. Now, just past the summer solstice, that quiet voice has turned into a joyous song, a song sung by all of the beings that have made Ancient Oaks their home: the people, the plants, the cows, the wildlife, the nature spirits, devas and spiritual beings. A song those of us living here and everyone who visits or helps from afar are wrapped up in and are part of.

Centre of Light–Ark of Fire Satsang May 2015 | Volume 43 #1 | New Era 72

“This Centre of Light is to provide sanctuary, refuge for coming times.”

It is with great joy that we announce that the construction of the Centre of Light at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya in Poland has begun!

On May 17th 2015, Shree Gajanan Maharaj’s birthday, we performed a powerful Rudra Yajnya with all the community and close friends present. Afterwards, on this beautiful spring day we officially broke ground. One by one, we took shovels and dug into the earth where the Centre of Light will stand. Two days later, contractors arrived to begin the excavation work.
