It is with great pleasure, and only through the Grace of our Divine Master, Sri Swami Sivananda and Pujya Swami Sahajananda, that Divine Life Society of South Africa (DLS) is able to announce a significant milestone in the development of a new Divine Life Society Ashram in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

In recognition of the growing devotee and donor base in the north of Johannesburg, DLS has recently acquired land in Buccleuch, Sandton and the process to develop a new Centre in Gauteng is currently underway. The new Ashram will serve as an oasis of spirituality and a centre for the promotion of our Glorious Hindu Dharma. Activities will include Sunday Satsangs, Yoga Asana classes, Sunday School for Spiritual Darlings (children), Yoga Retreats, Satsangs for major events on the Hindu and Divine Life Society calendar, dissemination of the Society's spiritual literature, etc.

Location and details of the new site:
Address: 2 Twain Avenue, Buccleuch, Sandton

The land area is 13 800m2 and due to its central location is ideally suited to meet the needs of our growing devotee base. The new Ashram Project is estimated to cost in the region of R8m (eight million rands) and work on its construction will commence soon.We look forward to the goodwill and kind support of all our members, patrons and well-wishers towards this project. Any form of assistance will be most appreciated.

By the Grace of our Divine Master, many have already made pledges of funds and services towards this project. We are deeply indebted to and place on record our heartfelt gratitude to all who are serving the Mission of our Divine Master through their love offerings.

We encourage you to continue to spread the message widely amongst family, friends and work colleagues to enable this project to come to fruition as soon as possible.

From the early years, devotees of Sri Swami Sivananda and Pujya Swamiji in Gauteng (then Transvaal) have been conducting Satsangs at the homes of devotees, in classrooms, etc. The Gauteng branch of the Divine Life Society of S.A. was formed in the early 1990's.

In 2002, Pujya Swamiji opened an Ashram in Gauteng, called Sivananda Yoga Centre. It is located in the south of Johannesburg in Zakariyya Park, Lenasia. A beautiful shrine and Ganga Rani (water fountain consecrated with holy Ganga water) adorns the Prayer Hall. 

Activities at the Centre include Ganga Arati, Satsangs, grocery hamper distribution, dissemination of spiritual literature, youth events, Yoga Retreats and Sunday School for Spiritual Darlings (children). The Branch has grown considerably, and celebrates major events in the Hindu and Divine Life Society calendar.

The weekly Sunday School, in particular, has been an attraction for parents who wish to ensure that their children lead a path of righteousness and maintain their Hindu Dharma in the current age of Kali Yuga. With little access to the wisdom of previous generations, spiritual and religious guidance is quite often a challenge faced by parents residing in Gauteng. At the Divine Life Society Ashram, parents attend Satsang while their children are spiritually moulded and educated. 

In addition to the main Satsang which takes place at the Ashram on a Sunday from 9:40am - 12pm, the branch also conducts Satsang on Tuesday evenings in Sandton, north of Johannesburg from 7 - 8pm. For more information on the Gauteng Branch of Divine Life Society of S.A contact Kuben Thavar ‪082 600 0079‬
