I am you. You are me. We are everything. And everything is nothing. Blissful emptiness.
We had never felt soil before. Then one day, we grew onions. After a few months, tiny little pods grew inside the earth. The onions were small but they broke through some big egos. If you look at an onion closely, there are layers. Each layer is different and there are layers after layers. It is pretty much like the universe. We went on peeling till we reached the core. We thought we had found the answer. But then the core looked like another smaller onion which could not be peeled further. And that is how the universe is. We keep on going deeper and deeper inside an atom only to find that there is another universe inside.
Does that mean we don’t need to peel anymore? Not at all! That will undo the learning of the first layer itself. Every peel is a circle which expands after every layer and the process gives birth to a spiral; the spiral of celebration which we know as life. To transcend each layer and move to a different one, Buddha is needed, Sangha is a must and Dharma is important. And this whole work on the self by propelling all the inner and outer dimensions is ‘Saadho’.
Saadho provides a space to meet, share & incubate people and processes to catalyze the evolution of the collective consciousness. It is a field of work where one can play in the realm of duality to approach advait. Saadho reminds us that the magic of life consists in achieving action through non-action. It is a collective that grows together and aids an individual in finding their true nature, the nature of the cosmos.
Saadho is an open invitation to come together and incubate conscious work. There is no ambition to take over the world or create any dent in the universe, the aim is to find a tuning with oneness and resonate in harmony. It is an invitation to walk together towards the gathering of love and add oil to the flame of life.
Apart from conducting regular retreats, yoga classes, satsangs (talks), keertans (devotional singing/chanting) and pilgrimages, some of the areas of work @ Saadho are small scale farming, food, organic cotton, natural dyes, pottery, working & learning with children and creative forms of expression. Combining all of this, we have been working on a theme based magazine which is published every four months (music edition, food edition and more) and have also began making docu-films, check out- The Mountain Within. The intention is to portray stories which move us from within.
As a community, the idea is to be open, transparent and work together on things we always wanted to. Let’s grow together, outwards, inwards and beyond!
