Today I share with you testimonials from the online retreat. Madhukar Enlighten Life Retreats exist online and offline – and both have their own quality. The name of the online retreat that took place in September 2022 was Awakening into Love. The retreat lasted a week and yesterday was the last day. For me it is always wonderful to participate in a retreat. There are so many aspects that I could mention. For example, others say, “Because it would cost me so much quality of life not to be part of it.” Yes, it’s a big bite of quality of life to be immersed in that love, to be that love, and to be reminded of it over and over again. But now I’ll let the other participants share their experiences.
What do participants say in testimonials about the online retreat with Madhukar?
Priya shares a beautiful experience she had while dancing. Yes, this lightness and love also inspires to dance. But read yourself:
Experience of Priya from Germany
” Many thanks beloved Madhukarji for all the love that has been flowing since the beginning of the retreat, it is such a joy!
On Sunday I danced together with my partner to the Satsang music and a tender and at the same time powerful energy gifted us with an intimate heart touch, beautiful.
On any given day there is this wonderful amazement of how the blessing of the master lineage shows up. I am happy to participate in the retreat, even if I can’t be there “live” on the weekdays.”
with love, Priya
The title of the retreat was, as I had already written: “Awakening into Love”. And so it’s no surprise that the testimonials are corresponding. Everything is full of love – and if I ever need a reminder of that, then of course I read a quote from Madhukar, look at his picture – enjoy the darshan – but I also like to read the testimonials from the online retreat. I can dive in with that too – and maybe you can too? Then let’s continue to see what the participants write….
Daria from Moscow feels the same way
“Your heart connected with my heart and started dancing with joy. What can I do. Love just is happening. Thank you for inviting me to this heart dance.
Men are also present in the online retreat – often they have few words. Whereby this is also simply a thing of Advaita – there it generally does not need so many words, because the message is also transported in silence. Bernd writes something about how it is for many.
Bernd is touched by Madhukar’s voice
“Revered Guruji, I am listening and watching yesterday’s evening satsang again right now. Just hearing your voice at the beginning of the satsang touches me deeply. Thank you.
Suri immediately comments on his post, “I feel the same way.” And I, too, can attest to that. Madhukar’s voice is like balm to me, love turned into sound, silence. She immediately sends me right there.
Some feel that the family benefits
First, I share with you two posts simply thanking you for the experience at the retreat:
I am always touched by the silence, which is very intense and deep. Touched by the fact that Satsang is so healing and also that family and ancestors are blessed! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With love Sunita, Stuttgart
in this beautiful retreat I was especially touched to say “I am love”. Since then I say it again and again and realize how good it does me.
Also, I was touched to hear that my family lineage is also being healed in the satsang.
And finally it was wonderful to hear the song “Because it is love” once again.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
With love & gratitude
Yours, Amore, Karlsruhe
Some people are more sensitive and can perceive and put into words what is happening with everyone. It is so incredible, read what Dakini writes:
I was deeply touched by a memory when you spoke about when we realize Satsang not only healing happens for us, but also generations before and after us are blessed by it.
I remembered when I signed up for the online retreat, that night everything from the past suddenly transformed and reshaped within me.
Deep in my mind’s eye, all the suffering and drama of my parents and childhood was transformed into love and peace.
I cried all night with touch, joy and gratitude.
Also when you said that for thousands of years Satsang has been taking place and nourishing the boundless peaceful consciousness and we are a part of it, it touched me very much.
The loving and devoted voice of the singer in the song “Om Chit Ananda”, which you played yesterday for the Satsang, also touched me very much.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the endless love, divine blessings and guidance through you my beloved Guruji.
In deep love forever surrendered to That which is all, by your grace.
Dakini describes something I often feel as well: as soon as I sign up for a retreat, it is palpable. I am carried by an energy that has to do with the retreat.
Men also express their gratitude
I always find it very touching when someone doesn’t just parrot something from others, but describes their own experience. Just like these two men:
what touched me the most was that sometimes in satsang my perception changes and it becomes still and clear. This also changes my view of the world outside. It is as if this world steps back a bit and makes room for something big, silent and peaceful.
For this and much more I am very grateful to you.
Beloved Master, Sri Madhukarji!
I am very thankful for this retreat!
Diving with you into LOVE is the only thing what is REAL!
And this diving is never end.
Nothing But Love!
Uuuui, that’s quite touching, isn’t it?
And two more testimonials from the online retreat.
Wait, I might share this one too. Helen first came to the retreat in India two years ago. The silent retreat where we are silent for three weeks. She is a true poet, I love her poems.
“Silence. Just being Now with you in this forever heart of Yours was, has been and is the most meaningful to me. That what is not spoken contains the biggest wisdom. Thank you my dear Guru for being you and loving me like you do. I feel blessed, light and happy! I am love.”
And finally, I share with you what Inna writes from Moscow. She last saw Madhukar in January, when Madhukar was in Moscow for the retreat. Can you imagine a woman living in a country where things are anything but peaceful right now writing such lines?
“Beloved Guruji, thank you to again and again bring me back into this lightness and simplicity of life where everything is on the right place, where there is nothing to strive for, nothing to attain and where only trust to beingness is . You leave no room for superficial and there is only a beauty of beingness as it is.
For sure it is not always that easy, some envolvements into mind’s play happen from time to time. But that, what had been recognized at the first satsang with you many years ago, has reduced all dramas to nothing. You are like an anchor, which keeps me in silence and peace while the storm around is in its height.
Now I am so happy to sit here, in satsang, every evening at the feet of my Guruji in gratefulness. Can there ever be room for something else?
In endless gratitude, Inna Moscow”,
