Event description


Are you interested in taking your spiritual practice to the next level, but you are not sure how to do so? The Spiritual Science Research Foundation's 1-Day Online spiritual workshops may provide the answers you are looking for. These workshops provide you with all the tools you need to deepen your spiritual practice and experience more peace and happiness in your life. Our online workshops are ideal for those with more demanding schedules who may find it difficult to take the time to travel to our offline workshops. The workshop will be interactive wherein the conductors will share their screen or perform demos and you can ask questions or share your comments.

In the workshop, we will train you in the Personality Defect Removal (PDR) process which has been created and developed by His Holiness Dr Athavale (who is the founder of the Maharshi University of Spirituality). This training will give you practical tools to reduce defects and enhance qualities required for spiritual progress.

Along with this, we will elaborate on how to recognise spiritual distress and we will provide you with simple and yet potent self-healing tools to protect yourself spiritually.

Through practical subtle experiments, we will help you to test and understand your sixth sense, and we will also share with you research and videos which demonstrate the effects of the spiritual dimension on animals.

At the end of the program, there will be a Q&A session for you to openly share your questions about spirituality.

Conductors of the workshop

Her Holiness Mrs Shilpa Kudtarkar was curious about spirituality since she was a child and when she was 10 years old, she asked her mother, "How can I experience God?" Her mother replied that she would experience God when she would meet a Saint like Swami Vivekananda. When H.H. Shilpa met H.H. Dr. Athavale, she felt that she had met her Vivekananda (Guru) in this lifetime and began her spiritual practice sincerely under the guidance of SSRF in 1994. She feels that doing spiritual practice under the guidance of SSRF has made experiencing God a reality and not just concept and she is greatly indebted to SSRF for that. After moving to USA, she and her husband offered their home in New Jersey for SSRF Workshops and seekers have benefited greatly from their virtue of sacrifice throughout the years. In January 2019, H.H. Shilpa was declared to have reached the spiritual level of Sainthood during a blissful ceremony at the SSRF Research Centre & Ashram. Her perseverance in her spiritual journey, spiritual emotion towards God, and incredible faith in her Guru is an inspiration to all of us.

Mr. Krishna Mandava is from Roanoke, Virginia. He completed his Masters in Physical Chemistry and is a Pharmacist by profession. From a young age, he regularly studied holy scriptures and was inspired by devotional songs sung by his mother. His desire for God-realization motivated him to look for guidance in spiritual practice. In 2015 Krishna started spiritual practice under the guidance of SSRF. After attending the 5-day spiritual workshop at Ramnathi Ashram, Goa, he felt his search had ended and began spiritual practice with a new vigour. Noticing rapid changes in his attitude, such as feeling more stable, calm in life’s situations, and happiness within that he had never felt before, Krishna decided to dedicate all his free time to helping others learn about and perform spiritual practice. Krishna conducts spiritual meetings (satsang) and workshops online and in the USA. He helps spread SSRF’s unique knowledge by distributing SSRF’s holy books written by Saints, as well as through the Facebook social media platform.

Allen Hardy is from St. Catharines, Canada. He grew up in a Catholic home, and as a teen he became curious about world religions. Throughout his life, he felt strongly that God was taking care of him, regardless of the situation he faced. Throughout his 24-year profession as a high temperature bricklayer, and in his personal life, Allen faced many physical and mental challenges. In 2011 he began seeking spirituality again, as he found life very much lacking in happiness and peace. He explored various self-help and meditation practices, attending retreats around the world. In 2015 Allen found SSRF, and felt the practices were very effective yet simple. He had his first spiritual experience within a few months of starting chanting, and his desire for God began to increase rapidly. In late 2017, Allen took early retirement to do full-time spiritual practice and spread spirituality. He has a strong desire to share what he has learned and experienced with others, and he is very grateful to be a part of this spiritual tour.

This workshop is organized by the Spiritual Science Research Foundation and the Maharshi University of Spirituality.
