The RMF UK provides a focal point for devotees of Sri Ramana Maharshi in the United Kingdom as well as for visitors from overseas. Meetings (Satsangs) are held twice in every month at The Friends Meeting House, Hampstead, London NW3 1DR. All who are interested in the Maharshi’s Teachings are welcome to attend without seeking permission or booking beforehand. Other activities include Meditation and Study Groups which are held in members’ homes. Please note that there is no Centre or Ashram, nor does the Foundation have its own premises which means, regrettably, that are we unable to provide accommodation for visitors.
Owing to the repairs and refurbishment at The Quaker Meeting House in Hampstead (our usual venue) taking longer than was anticipated:
The next Main Satsang, starting at 2 pm on Saturday 13 October, will again be held at Colet House, 151 Talgarth Road, Hammersmith, London W14 9DA (very close to Barons Court Undeground Station on the Piccadilly & District Lines)
And the next Devotional Satsang starting at 2 pm on Saturday 27 October, will again be held at 28 South Hill Park, Hampstead, London NW3 2SB (close to Hampstead Heath Overground Station)
Michael James will continue to take us through Nan Yar (‘Who am I?’) in the Main Satsangs on the second Saturday of each month, talking about one paragraph in each Satsang as follows:
October - Paragraph 11; November - Paragraph 12; December - Paragraph 13; January - Paragraph 14; February - Paragraph 15
The RMF UK on the second Saturday of each month for Satsangs which last from 1.30 to 5.30 pm are usually held at The Friends Meeting House, 120 Heath Street, Hampstead, London NW3 1DR. Each Satsang has a theme. After an opening mantra and ‘Om’, there is a period of 10 minutes silence, after which Michael gives a brief introduction to the theme of the Satsang followed by questions and answers (the themes for the Satsangs are published in the Newsletter) . We break for tea from about 3.30 to 4.30 pm and this is followed by further questions and answers by way of an open discussion. The meetings conclude with a bhajan and closing mantra at about 5.30 pm.
As well as the main monthly Satsangs, Additional Devotional Satsangs starting at 2 pm on the last Saturday of each month are usually held in the Library upstairs in the Friends Meeting House. The emphasis at these devotional Satsangs is on Devotion and they are less formal than the main Satsangs.
The nearest Underground Station is Hampstead on the Northern Line: turn right out of the Station & then immediately right again into Heath Street. The FMH is about 5 minutes walk up Heath Street, past a Church on the right-hand-side, past New End, past Elm Row, and then the Friends Meeting House, also on the right, has a black, arched entrance under a yew tree. NB It is very difficult to find car parking space anywhere near the Friends Meeting House and the parking wardens are very keen.
A Meditation Group meets at 6.45 pm on Thursday evenings at 15a Victoria Road Kilburn London NW6 6SX which finishes at 9 pm. The nearest Main line train stations are at Kilburn High Road (for trains from Euston) and Brondesbury on the North London Line. The nearest Underground stations are at Kilburn on the Jubilee Line and Kilburn Park on the Bakerloo Line. There are no car parking restrictions after 6.30 pm.
A Study Group meets fortnightly on alternate Tuesday evenings, to continue going through the Core Texts. We are currently going through "Padamalai, the Teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi" as Recorded by Muruganar. Numbers are limited, however, as the meetings take place in a private home. Anyone who is interested is therefore asked to contact Alasdair in the first place on 020 7328 3314 or Aldia@waitrose.com or Aldia@waitrose.com.
