Jai HO (Jai Haidakhandi Outreach) is an impulse for renewal, cooperation and love within the international Babaji community. It was born out of the gathering of many devotees from around the world who have expressed an urgent need for support to Babaji’s hospitals and communities world-wide. An initiative to promote Babaji’s teachings which embraces all religions and spiritual paths.
Although they live actively in our hearts, Sri Babaji, and Munirajji have left their bodies and direct physical guidance through them is no longer available. In order to continue and thrive as a spiritual family and global community of diverse people without the presence of a living master, Jai HO seeks to engage and interact in a way that will examine and inspire our activities and structures for a positive future of our community.
- To this end, we invite a spirit of radical and far-reaching inquiry and opening of ourselves within the Babaji community.
- We are creating for this questioning and conversation, in a spirit of truth, simplicity and love, a platform of relationships, celebrations, collaborations, learning, and on-line presence.
- We seek to help focus and support Babaji Ashrams, Centres and interest groups.
