3 Days Grace Day Retreat Stuttgart, Germany
Enlighten Life Event in Madhukar’s home town
This weekend event is dedicated to Sri H.W.L. Poonja, the Master of Madhukar. We celebrate his birthday on October 13.
Friday 11th October To Sunday 13th October 2019.

The aim is to explore and realize the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the ancient spiritual traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, the Vedas of Hinduism, mystical Christianity, Zen, Tao, Dzog-Chen, Shamanism and Sufism. Here we will plumb the depths of the logos of Being, of eternity. You will learn about, understand and gain your true blissful nature, which is underlying, as the ever-present reality, all of our own experiences.

Madhukar – Enlighten Life is a contemporary, experiential approach of Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of Wisdom. The Enlighten Life retreats and events offer an unique, direct transmission of knowledge through Satsang. They include meditation, dialogue, silence, guided meditation, and other modern techniques of mastery which will support you. It requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is required is an interest in freedom, the essential nature of experience. And a longing for love and peace, the desire for meaningfulness and happiness, around which most of our lives revolve.

About Madhukar, Founder of Madhukar – Enlighten Life

Madhukar is a direct disciple of Papaji (Sri H.W.L. Poonja), the „Lion of Lucknow“, whose Guru was the famous sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Born in Germany in 1957, Madhukar began already in his youth to ask a multitude of spiritual questions which grew more urgent after an experience of Oneness and a near-death experience. After experiencing a spontaneous Kundalini awakening, Madhukar ended his professional career and became a student of the Dzogchen Master Namkhai Norbu and continued looking for absolute truth. This search ended in 1992 in India where he met Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji). Madhukar had arrived at his Master who ultimately awakened him to his own true nature. Read More

Sri H.W.L. Poonja Ji

The Lion of Lucknow had several mystical experiences as a young child. Madhukar’s guru always desired to “see God.” A family man from the Western Punjab, he travelled across India soliciting the help of sages and gurus. In 1944 Poonjaji’s search ended in the silent gaze of his guru Sri Ramana Maharshi at the feet of the sacred mountain Arunachala. With absolute resolve, Poonjaji dedicated his life to the recognition of freedom and peace. He pointed to where true fulfillment is, where truth is, where the Buddha is, where God is. A true “Papa” in the hearts of many, he was lovingly called Papaji. Sri H.W.L. Poonja left his body in 1997 in Lucknow, India, at the age of 86.

Self is what gives breath to Life. You need not search for It, It is Here. You are That through which you would search. You are what you are looking for! And That is All it is. Only Self is.

Sri Ramana Maharshi

Realizing the Self at the age of 16, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi is one of India’s most revered sages. Sri Ramana lived his life of self-recognition at the feet of India’s holy mountain, Arunachala. Madhukar’s guru Papaji (Sri H.W.L. Poonja) met him here in 1944.

An uncountable number of spiritual seekers has received Sri Ramana’s transmission and essential teaching – who we are is boundless consciousness, completely whole, and totally free.

To realize our true self, Sri Ramana’s guidance is pure and simple: Be still. Be absolutely still.

There is neither creation nor destruction, neither destiny nor free will, neither a way nor awakening. That is the final truth.
