New York: India Pilgrimage 2017 with Virabhadra and Dhyana

January 23, 2017 at The Bhakti Center (Official) in New York.


JANUARY 23 – FEBRUARY 6, 2017 (14 DAYS)


PRICE: $2800 (this includes a $700 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot)

Contact Dhyana directly: dhyanamasla@gmail.com / (352) 328-8152

For thousands of years people have traveled to India in search of answers to life’s deepest mysteries. Whether you’re coming to experience the colorful culture or are on a spiritual quest, India has a way of reawakening your senses so that you can dive deeper into the meaning of life. We are super excited about this trip and the opportunity to serve and share India with you through our eyes and the eyes of our teachers – and of course, through the lens of what we love: Bhakti, Yoga, and ADVENTURE!


We will fly into Mumbai and head straight to Govardhan Eco Village for the International Bhakti Yoga Festival – 5 days of diving into the essence of India’s Yoga traditions with Radhanath Swami as well as other renowned teachers from around the world. The Govardhan Eco Village is situated on 50 acres of pristine farmland and aims to demonstrate the principles of self-sufficiency and localized economy to the world. We will stay in eco-friendly cob houses in the naturally charming village, eat local dishes made from organic grains and vegetables grown on the land, and tour the facilities to see how a group of bhakti-yogis are making a difference towards a greener world. We will practice yoga daily, hear from Radhanath Swami, choose from an array of life changing workshops, swim in the inviting bio pool and have the option to receive Ayurvedic treatments at their world-class Ayurvedic Center.

After 5 days there, we will head back to Mumbai for the Flower Festival! Thousands and thousands of colorful flower petals showering the deities and the entire temple room! We will hear wonderful discourses from Radhanath Swami at the beautifully carved sandstone Radha Gopinath Temple as well as experience real India through the moods of celebration with God in the center.

We will then head to Rishikesh; a small town situated on the banks of the sacred Ganges River in the foothills of the Himalayas. Here we will practice Yoga and Meditation each morning, hike through the Himalayan foothills, as well as white water raft on the Ganga! A time to relax, restore, and reconnect to nature in the pristine environment of mystical India.

We will spend our last few days in the most sacred of villages, Vrindavan; a village with over 5,000 temples celebrating the birthplace of Lord Krsna.

India is a WILD place! Dust, noise, material inconveniences and craziness around every corner. When we are able to go beyond the material chaos that sends some Westerners packing, there is a legitimate opportunity for our soul’s eyes to open and our
heart to blossom.


14 days and nights of accommodation and transportation
Mumbai’s famous Flower Festival!
Yoga & Meditation classes on most mornings
Witness breath taking views and invigorating hikes through the Himalayas
Wash away our stresses in the surcharged holy rivers
Dive into the histories and incredible stories of the Vedic culture (made applicable to today’s times)
Admission into the International Bhakti Yoga Festival
2-3 Delicious love filled vegetarian meals each day
Prema Breathwork
Build life-long friendships
Seva (Opportunities to serve the local people)
Parikrama (Pilgrimages through and around temples and holy places)

Bud, trained by one of India’s greatest masters, is a renowned Ayurveda and Marma therapist.

Buffalo: Dangermuffin at Buffalo Iron Works – JUN 30TH

June 30, 2016 at Buffalo Iron Works in Buffalo.


Thursday June 30th – Dangermuffin w/ Special Guests
Doors: 8:00pm, Show: 9:00pm – Tickets: $7 ADV/$10 DOS

It’s a question asked — in one way or another — by anyone who allows him or herself to dig deeper into their own existence than the simple day-to-day drudgery that seems to fuel our society.

“I want to know it and sing it from my soul,” answers Dan Lotti in the opening moments of Dangermuffin’s transformative fifth album, Songs for the Universe. From those first questions in “Ancient Golden Star” — a song inspired by a Cherokee creation myth — it’s clear that this Folly Beach-based trio has matured even further in their musical craftsmanship.

Taken at face value, the album’s 17 tracks can still energize a backyard campfire or an early morning jog, just as Dangermuffin always has over their eight-year career. But listen closely to Lotti’s words, and you’ll discover another world of stones unturned and long-hidden truths. Archetypes of the sea, the sun and the Phoenix are prevalent throughout the collection (very nearly a concept album) that plays like a sacred scroll of sage wisdom set to the laid-back roots-based sounds they’ve built their national following upon.

And though you can take a man away from the beach, you can’t take the ocean from a man. In 2014, the newlywed Lotti migrated north to the mountains of western North Carolina. His focus on personal and spiritual growth shows itself prominently on Songs for the Universe. “Since moving, a lot of my time has been spent in meditation and doing private yogic practices, abstaining from alcohol and connecting with plants,” says Lotti. Guitarist Mike Sivilli and percussionist Steven Sandifer — who remain on Folly Beach and in Charleston, S.C., respectively — also subscribe to holistic, plant-based lifestyles (not always an easy feat for a group of men on tour, burning up the miles between interstate exits).

If a vegan rock band surprises you, consider that Dangermuffin are simply an embodiment of a new consciousness building across their generation, where respect for the Earth and its healing powers outweigh the distractions of modern existence. Even the musical frequencies Dangermuffin employs are chosen for their nurturing potential. Songs for the Universe was recorded entirely in 432 and 444 Hz — the former of which was the frequency preferred by Vivaldi and chosen by violin maker Stradivarius for his renowned violins. Today, the gold standard for musicians is 440 Hz, but Lotti questions whether we sacrifice much of music’s potential by holding rigidly to that framework.

Like the secret chord in Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that “pleased the Lord,” utilizing ancient frequencies lets Dangermuffin seek vibrations that affect the body beyond the eardrums. “In the record, you can hear pitch shifts where we work with sound healing and frequencies that are harmonious with the human body,” says Lotti. On the album’s cover, the band’s ubiquitous muffin vibrates like a star in space, surrounded by the 17 archetypes present throughout the songs (a zia for “Lady of Fire,” a serpent for “Snakecharmer”).

Recorded at Charleston, S.C.’s Truphonic Studios, the album contains the influence of Appalachia but still maintains the salty vibes of the Carolina coast, perhaps best heard in “Little Douglas,” a lighthearted song about ‘herbal’ enlightenment that features Keller Williams on bass and backing vocals.

From Canton
At the intersection of Rt. 11 and Rt. 68 (Stewart’s, Pizza Hut & Price Chopper) take Rt. 68 toward Colton (south). After passing two separate flashing yellow lights for curves in road, look for the next small intersection that has a sign noting that it is Langdon’s Corners (roughly 5 miles from Canton.) You do not have a stop sign there, so keep an eye out for the green Langdon’s Corners sign. Take a Left there onto the Crary Mills-Eben Road, heading towards Potsdam. Less than a mile down, at the flashing yellow light, in the middle of a speed zone, take a Right onto the Post Rd. If you pass a playground and cross a low bridge, you just missed it, turn around! It’s a short way down the Post Rd. on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.

From Potsdam
You can either take Rt. 11 to Canton and then follow the directions above (your first turn would be a Left onto Rt. 68 at the Stewart’s/Pizza Hut/Price Chopper intersection of Rt. 11 & 68 – the first light when you enter Canton.)
OR (the shortcut)
In Potsdam, go to the intersection of Maple St. and Rt. 47 (Back Hannawa Rd.) where the “new” Kinney’s is, as well as Clarkson University across from it. Take Rt. 47 over the hill past Clarkson. Take the second Right turn onto the South Canton Rd. Stay on this road for 3-4 miles until you come to your first stop sign, which is a funny intersection where you need to merge onto a larger road on a big curve. That road is Rt. 35, which is also called the Crary Mills-Eben Rd. Pretty much you just drive straight onto 35, you’re merging onto it, not really turning onto it. About a mile or so down Rt. 35 you will approach a speed zone in Crary Mills. You will cross a low bridge and pass a playground as you approach the flashing yellow light. At that light, take a Left onto the Post Rd., and It’s a short way down on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.

From Colton
Take Rt. 68 towards Canton. About 2-3 miles out, after going down and then up a big hill, you’ll see signs to take a Right at an intersection coming up in order to stay on Rt. 68. Do this, take a Right there. If you pass the Pierreont Volnteer Fire Dept. you have gone a little too far. Once you’re on the new section of Rt. 68 you’ll briefly be in a speed zone in the center of Pierrepont. Once back on the open road it’s maybe 3-4 miles until you approach an intersection that is marked as Langdon’s Corners. You do not have a stop sign there, so keep an eye out for the green Langdon’s Corners sign. Take a Right at that intersection onto the Eben Rd., heading towards Potsdam. If you come across the Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm, you have gone 2-3 miles too far. Less than a mile down the Crary Mills-Eben Rd., at the flashing yellow light, in the middle of a speed zone, take a Right onto the Post Rd. If you pass a playground and cross a low bridge, you just missed it, turn around! It’s a short way down the Post Rd. on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.
