Beautiful, devotion and love-filled celebrations for Hanuman Jayanti took place on the banks of Mother Ganga, in the lap of the Himalayas, at Parmarth Niketan, with the special visit and blessings of Pujya Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji, Founder of the The Art of Living, and in the divine presence of Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, President of Parmarth Niketan, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji, President of Divine Shakti Foundation. The celebration was filled with divine chanting and singing by Sadhvi Abha Saraswatiji.
After the sacred recitation of the Sunderkand Path by Acharya Dileep Chhetryji and the Parmarth Rishikumars, our respected saints graced the occasion to lead the recitation of the Hanuman Chalisa and inspire the spirit of devotion in our hearts and our minds.

Pujya Sri Sri mentioned not being able to grace the world-renowned International Yoga Festival at Parmarth Niketan but expressed that it was his intention to visit before the end of the month and the auspiciousness of being together on the occasion of the full moon, during the divine celebrations of the birthday of Hanumanji on the holy banks of Mother Ganga.
It was followed by the purnahuti of the yagna (sacred fire ceremony) and the divine Ganga Aarti ceremony. Pujya Swamiji gave a special and sacred Rudraksha sapling to Pujya Sri Sriji as a symbol of the life and the light that he has brought to the lives of millions across the world. They together inspired the gathering to pledge for the protection of the environment and plantation of at least 21 trees within the course of our lifetimes.
The morning began with a clean up programme that engaged all of the Parmarth Rishikumars and sevaks along with the chanting of the Hanuman Chalisa. The spirit was in line with what Pujya Swamiji reminds the importance of “Safai Chalisa and Hanuman Chalisa” to work and walk together.
