Special Niyams for Chatur Mas and Shravan Mas 2022

India's rainy season marks a time known as Chaturmas (the four holy months). This year, Chaturmas is from 10 July to 4 November 2022. People take up special niyams at this time to earn extra blessings, especially in the month of Shravan (29 July to 27 August). Mahant Swami Maharaj has listed the niyams he’d like us kids to take. Here's his original letter and its English translation!

Special Niyams for Chatur Mas and Shravan Mas

This is the year of Pramukh Swami Maharaj’s Shatabdi Mahotsav. And this special year’s Chatur Mas and Shravan Mas are approaching. For it, all balaks and balikas should take three to five niyams from those listed below.
We should follow these niyams enthusiastically. But never with indifference! We should abide by them thoroughly and stick to them to the finish. Swami Bapa will be very pleased.

During the Shravan Mas: (29 July to 27 August)

  • Do 100 extra malas (3 to 5 per day)
  • Do five extra dandvats every day
  • Do five extra pradakshinas in puja or at a nearby mandir
  • Recite the Sahajanand Namavali a particular number of times
  • Do ek-tana (eat just once a day) for seven days

During the Chatur Mas: (10 July to 4 November)

  • Learn by heart 100 shlokas from the Satsang Diksha
  • If you live near a mandir, visit it 100 times for darshan
  • Read 100 prasangs from the book ‘Shat Dal Pramukh Parimal’ (Pramukh Swami Maharaj - 100 Inspiring Experiences)
