WHAT IS DARSHAN?
While it may seem like He is simply putting His hand on your head and looking into your eyes, in reality, He is looking at the exquisite beauty of your soul and planting the seeds for unconditional love to blossom in your heart.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF DARSHAN?
Darshan gives you a glimpse of the Divine; each Darshan helps clear the path for you to move closer to that goal.
WHAT DO I GET FROM DARSHAN?
For some, it’s a blessing. For some, it’s a transformation. For some, it’s a healing. But, above all, it is a sharing of Love. Darshan is purifying; anything can happen.
Once Paramahamsa Vishwananda has finished your Darshan blessing, He will hand you a small bundle of prasad, a blessed gift. Please receive the bundle with your right hand. There are three symbolic items in the bundle:
- A rose petal to remind you of the beauty of your soul
- A piece of candy which represents the sweetness of life
- A small packet of tumeric which is infused with the blessing of the Master
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Each person’s experience will be unique to them in that moment. Whether you feel something profound, or nothing at all, something deep inside of you is being touched, whether you realise it or not.
WHAT DO I DO DURING DARSHAN?
Really, there is nothing for you to do during your personal Darshan except enjoy the moment. It is a time to immerse yourself in the whole experience. Paramahamsa Vishwananda only sees the best in people and loves all equally, so there is no need to try to hide or pretend to be anything other than who you are.
The Darshan experience lasts several hours. In addition to your personal hands-on blessing from Paramahamsa Vishwananda, you are invited to stay and enjoy hours of singing and dancing to devotional bhajans and listening to inspirational stories from other guests.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Darshan is a festive occasion, you are coming to meet the Divine. Modest dress is recommended. Women tend to wear long skirts and modest necklines, and men wear nice trousers and shirts. Shorts, tight pants and low-cut shirts are not appropriate.
WHO CAN ATTEND DARSHAN?
Darshan events are open to everyone. There are no restrictions, all are invited regardless of faith or tradition. There is no charge to receive the blessing, however, donations are always welcomed.
The cloakroom and shoes are not attended at Ritarihuone. Please do not bring big bags as there is no space for storage and you cannot take them into the Darshan hall.
