In the Indian epic the Ramayana, Ram (God) says to Hanuman, “Who are you?” Hanuman replies, “When I think I am my body, I serve you. When I identify with my soul, I am a part of you. When I awaken to my True Nature, you and I are one.” This captures the essence of what the Sacred can awaken in us: a life-long calling to be in service and devotion to Love. It is through this service and through this devotion that we begin to realize we are not separate. Love is the very nature of our Being. It is who we are.

About

Sitaram Dass spent several years serving his beloved teacher Ram Dass on Maui, where he was shown the path of Bhakti, the yoga of service and devotion to God. He is the Director of the Sacred Community Project and a member of Kripa, where he works to lower the barriers of access to contemplative and devotional practices through affordable, free, and donation-based offerings, one-on-one spiritual support, and prison outreach. His new book, From and for God, is an intimate and contemplative collection of writings on the spiritual path.

Hanuman Ki Jai!

Kirtan & Workshops

Kirtan is a practice of Bhakti Yoga, or the yoga of love and devotion towards God. As it says in Be Here Now, “The way Bhakti works is you just love until you and the Beloved become One.” It is the call-and-response chanting of the various names of God/dess from the ancient Sanskrit language. All of these Names point to the deepest reaches of the heart where our True Nature resides.

Through his work with the Sacred Community Project, Sitaram Dass offers workshops and retreats on Bhakti, interspirituality, meditation, and the intersection between spirituality and social action, and is available for one-on-one spiritual support.

“I draw my inspiration from my beloved teacher Ram Dass, the great Indian Saint Neem Karoli Baba, Hanuman, and the Divine Mother. I also find inspiration in all of the world’s great wisdom and mystic traditions and have received great benefit, insight, and grace from Sufism, Buddhism, Hermeticism, Christianity, as well as the many forms of modern psychotherapy.”

Spiritual Support

All donations go towards my service work with the Sacred Community Project

I offer donation-based, heart-to-heart video-chat support for those seeking spiritual support. This is offered freely as Seva to ensure everyone has access to the Eternal Teachings.

Something beautiful happens when people on the path come together: we help each other to open our hearts. This deepens the space between us to allow for that Ineffable, Transformative Love.

I also recognize that many of us live in environments where we don’t have much support from a greater spiritual community. This can leave us feeling isolated when:

A transpersonal experience has shattered the world as we know it…
We want to calibrate our lives towards service, reverence, and contemplation…
After years of relishing in the juice of connection, we enter a dry spell and feel stuck in our spiritual practice…
REACH OUT
We want to use our spiritual values, insights, and worldview to navigate grief, loss, life transitions, closing chapters, and new beginnings…
