Meditate on "Newness" (Nava) in the "Dark Nights" (Ratri)


Navaratri is a festivity of nine (Nava) nights when the Divine vibrations of Great Mother – Lalitha is in the highest sensitivity filled with compassion to grace every soul to embark upon the spiritual journey during these nine days.

Most of the time the whole life looks bleak filled with despair, confusion, conflict and occasionally rare moments of joy. Such a mechanised, dull and burdensome life lacks purpose. We have to break this cycle of monotonous  un-rhythmic days and nights and create space within for the transformation to happen.

Divine Mother Lalitha the brightest charming light, the treasure of knowledge, the essence of absolute freedom, the grace of prosperity, harmony and enthusiasm is the centre which is “New”, “Fresh” and “Ever expanding filled with joy”. This eternal sacred centre should be our hope, refuge and guide in the dark nights of our journey.

Let us invoke the benevolent grace of Newness - Lalitha filled with grace, rhythm and wisdom. Let us connect with that centre - Lalitha firmly by doing Navaratri Anushtana. (Sep 24th - Oct 3rd)

May you and your family be blessed by Divine Mother.

SUNSAT with Guruji

0 comments
Dear All:

SUNSAT 12 was conducted by Guruji himself on August 17, 2014 at Prof.Iyerji's residence. Guruji emphasized mainly on Saakshi Bhaava i.e., whatever is happening to you and through you is not YOU. Meaning, the processes are happening but you are not the process. What we have to do is to just detach ourselves from the process and look at the process.

Full audio of Guruji's discourse can be downloaded from here:

SUNSAT 13 went on as usual. We wanted to play Gurudev's audio and follow the instructions. But since the audio was not available on time for the SATSANG we continued with the old format.

SUNSAT 14: We could get the audio of Gurudev and we played it and followed the instructions. Gurudev suggested us to do Sumeru Dhyana till November, 2014. Accordingly we prepared an audio file of Gurudev's Sumeru Dhyana programme. It is about 50 minutes and the remaining 10 minutes we chanted Hanuman Chalisa and dispersed. We will stick to this format till November, as suggested by Gurudev.

The group felt happy as we were all guided by the voice of Gurudev for 50 minutes.
