New Moon Meditation
Swami Ritavan Bharati, the Spiritual Guide of AHYMSIN and Ashram Pramukha of Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, has shared that the New Moon Meditations will continue in 2023 as before. We will continue to use the Saumya-Tara Mantra for the New Moon Meditations.
You are lovingly invited to sit in meditation for an hour wherever you are, in your home or with friends. Total beginners and longtime practitioners, non-initiates and initiates are welcome. If you cannot sit for the entire hour, sit as long as you are able; as Swami Veda has said, “Let the quietness of the mind continue even after you rise…”
New Moon Meditation Schedule in 2023:
Swami Ritavan Bharati will join the New Moon Meditations at 6 PM IST from Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama. As much as possible, you are invited to sit for your meditation and connect with Swami Ritavan, members of the AHYMSIN Spiritual Committee, the Ashram community, and others at the same time.

Saumya-Tara Mantra (2019-2022)
सौम्या सौम्यतराशेष सौम्येभ्यस्त्वतिसुन्दरी ।
परापराणां परमा त्वमेव परमेश्वरी ॥
तारे तुत्तारे तुरे स्वाहा ॥
Saumyā saumyatarāśeṣa saumyebhyas tvati sundari.
Parāparāṇāṁ paramā tvameva parameśvarī.
Tāre tut tāre ture svāhā.
She, of the lunar aspect, moonlike, peaceful and kind, is even more beautiful than all lunar-like forces and peaceful entities combined in the entire universe.
Thou are the supreme Lady. Thou alone art the supreme Lady who transcends all transcendent realities and immanent forces.
I prostrate to the Liberator, Mother of all the Victorious Ones.
