What they say about the Mela

I’ve been coming for 11 years, always a refreshing start to the new year.

The mela is a 1 week tension-free retreat, another world.

A great way to get in touch with my spirit.

I enjoyed meeting up with old acquaintances, don’t have to worry or think too much, its like hanging out with family (one I don’t have at home).

The mela provides a rare loving space for children to be with adults together in workshops, work and play and this is really appreciated.

You have inspired me to become a better person.

About Ananda Marga

Ananda Marga is an international organisation for Self-Realisation and Service to All. It was founded in 1955 by the spiritual master Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (also known as P.R. Sarkar when referring to his social writings.)

Ananda Marga spiritual practices include meditation (which is always taught individually, and free of charge), yoga postures, vegetarian diet and a clear code of ethics.

Service projects include the Lismore Vistara Primary School, the Maleny-based Ananda Marga River School , the Sunrise Preschool in Melbourne and hundreds of schools, relief projects, organic farm based communities, animal and plant welfare and many other projects throughout the world.

At the Mela

Around twenty monks and nuns usually attend the Ananda Mela and assist in many aspects of the program. These “Dadas” and “Didis” wear orange robes to signify their full time dedication to service and spirituality. These monks and nuns come from around the world (they normally don’t work in their home country) and work at projects in Australia and the surrounding countries. They are at Ananda Palli during Mela time to help with the program and attend the Ananda Marga Summer Retreat which is held just prior to the Mela. (Most practitioners of Ananda Marga are not renunciates but ordinary everyday people who value the spiritual dimension of life)

For people wanting to know more about Ananda Marga there will be a workshop based on our spiritual and social outlook offered as an option. Books on Ananda Marga will be available for sale (and you CAN always just ASK HERE.)
