SSRF Celebrates its 14-Year Anniversary !
14 years ago, the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) was launched with the blessings of Paratpar Guru Dr Jayant Athavale. On the day it was launched, about 40 people visited the site, and it was virtually unknown. However, Paratpar Guru Dr Athavale said that the website will attract people from all over the world to help them in their spiritual practise due to its Energy of Knowledge. Paratpar Guru Dr Athavale’s prophetic words came true, and today, over 54 million people have visited the website from every country all over the world, showing that the Knowledge on the website has global appeal. Some readers have even shared that once they discovered the SSRF website, they spent the next 48 to 72 hours glued to the website absorbing all the knowledge that it had to offer. They said that they had never seen a website like this which gave knowledge on so many aspects of the spiritual dimension all in one place. There are over 700 articles published on the website, and the knowledge cuts through cultural and religious barriers by providing information about spiritual principles and knowledge that are universal in nature. There is a team of seekers who do satseva from different timezones and serve this forum around the clock answering around 600 questions every month on Spirituality. Readers can ask questions in 11 languages including English, French, Spanish and German and receive answers within 48 hours. We would like to express gratitude to all of our readers for giving us the opportunity to serve you and for allowing us to be part of your spiritual journey !
Can the January 2020 Lunar Eclipse Affect Us Spiritually ?
A penumbral Lunar Eclipse (eclipse on a full moon day) will occur from January 10th -11th, 2020. The Eclipse will be visible in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and parts of North and South America.
During all eclipses, there is a rise in spiritual impurity that can cause us problems such as increased distress, lethargy and impaired decision making. The most important way that we can protect ourselves from adverse effects is by increasing our spiritual practice during the period of the eclipse.
To learn more about the impact of eclipses and how we can protect ourselves from their side-effects, read our article here.
NEW BOOK – Chants for curing ailments
Chanting is a very powerful remedy, as most of the destiny we experience in life has a spiritual root cause. This Holy Text explains how we can use chanting to help cure various illnesses manifesting as a result of our destiny. By chanting, we can completely overcome ailments related to mild destiny. If our destiny is moderate, chanting can reduce the severity of the illness. In cases of severe destiny, we can obtain the mental strength to face and endure our destiny.

On December 26th, 2019, a solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Australia and Asia
Eclipses may be fascinating celestial events, however, during the eclipse, the Sun will be obscured. As a result, there will be a significant increase in spiritual impurity, especially in areas where the eclipse will be seen. While the main effect is at the spiritual level, we will also be affected physically, emotionally and intellectually. As such, during the eclipse, we should not look at the eclipse, plan important functions, engage in spiritually impure (Raja-Tama) activities, such as sleeping, or eat. We should instead make efforts to intensify our spiritual practice, such as chanting of the name of God. Any spiritual practice undertaken during this period not only protects us from the negative impacts of the eclipse but also gives us a much higher benefit. To learn more about the impact of solar eclipses and what you can do to protect yourself, read our article here.

SSRF and MAV win award for paper on enhancing beauty through spiritual practice !
We have often heard that the face is the mirror of the mind. In SSRF’s experience, this is certainly true of seekers who do spiritual practice on a regular basis. With spiritual practice, a seeker’s face emits a Divine radiance that no amount of makeup or beauty treatment can match. SSRF and the Maharshi University of Spirituality (MAV) recently presented a paper at the Saundarya 2019 International Conference of Beauty on the very topic of how improving one’s personality through the Personality Defect Removal (PDR) process and chanting the name of God enhance our internal beauty, which in turn increases our external beauty. The paper received the best paper award for the conference. Conference goers were inspired by the presentation and were interested in learning more. Read the full blog post about the conference here.

His Holiness Sadguru Cyriaque conducts a lecture on Personality Defect Removal in Brussels, Belgium
SSRF recently held a lecture on Personality Defect Removal (PDR) in Brussels, Belgium. A total of 12 people attended the lecture, including 8 participants who were new to SSRF.
The lecture was conducted by His Holiness Sadguru Cyriaque, an SSRF Saint who has attained an 80% spiritual level due to His sincere efforts and devotion to spiritual practice.
During the course of the lecture, participants listened with interest to the information shared on how to use the PDR technique developed by His Holiness Dr. Athavale to overcome obstacles in life and achieve lasting happiness. This technique has already been used by thousands of people to transform their personalities for the better and is a wonderful tool for overcoming personality defects such as anger, insecurity, and fear.
