Zoom Saturday Satsang 13th March 2021

March 13 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

ZOOM SATSANG Saturday 13th March 2021 11am–1pm

11am Welcome Friends

We begin with a reading by Lynn Power

This will be followed by the uplifting chants Jaya Gurudev and Om Nama Shivaya,
chanting alongside a recording of Swami Indranandaji playing the harmonium.

We offer a very shortened form of the Classical Fire Ceremony -Havan Yajna
Chanting some Vedic hymns from the Fire Ceremony, this will help to fill the mind
with positive divine thoughts, it is a form of celebration, purification and helps to
bring a connection with each other and the universe.

11.30- 11.50pm A teaching from the Gita Vanessa Graham
11.50- 12.10pm Music -Songs and a story with Phil Duffield
12.10-12.20pm Mystical and devotional poetry with Manatitaji
12.20- 12.40pm Meditation with Brian Down
12.40- 1.00pm Q & A and Closing Peace Chant

You may wish to place on a small tray the following items which are all symbolical:
A candle to be lit representing fire and the Universal Light which is within us and
without, permeating everywhere.

A small bowl of water to be placed nearby and a small spoon to partake the water.
Water is cleansing, purifying. Consciousness is likened to water.

A flower symbolising devotion and some fruit to serve as an offering – prashad.

Healing and purification of all our senses is needed to make us aware and connect
to the Light, hence the reason that our founder, Swami Indranandaji always held
Havan Yajna, the Fire Ceremony at every Satsang. Whilst it’s not practical to do
that at this time, what we can try to do is to offer a very, very abbreviated form
chanting some of these wonderful Vedic hymns. When chanting the Sanskrit it is
always good to remind ourselves that sincerity is one of the best qualities we can
have on the spiritual path and no experience is needed! The first verse is very
significant to help us on the path.

O Bright Creator, send away all that is evil…
Om Vishvani deva savitur, duritani parasuva I
Yad bhadran tan na a suva II (1)
O Bright Creator, send far away all that is evil;
Send to us that which is truly good

OM Satyam yashah shrir-mayi shri shriyatam Svaha
