Satsang - Spiritual Gathering in Community Second Sunday of every month 7pm - - next one is October 10th This is a yogic ritual gathering where we sing a simple mantra for ten minutes, among other sacred songs throughout. Together, we take in the light (aarti) - purifying our sense perceptions - and eat some sweet thing (prasad) - gathering a sense of gratitude and reverence for the teachings, our lives, and our bodies. It is both a prayerful setting and a therapeutic one, in which we can release sadness and anger through sound (nada yoga/mantra yoga). Be moved in community - Buddhist, Hindu, Old Christian and First Nations - all lineages united. as described by residents of Yasodhara Ashram, Kootenays, BC A central flame sits on the altar in the Temple as a reminder of the Light in each of us and in all forms of the Divine. Aarti is an ancient ritual honouring the Divine. A single light, or collection of lights is blessed at the altar, then brought to each person, and is symbolic of the purification of the mind and senses. Mantra is chanted or recited for about ten minutes at each satsang for the Prayer List. Common mantras include Hari Om, Om Namah Sivaya, Namo Amitabha, Om Tara, Om Krishna Guru and Om. Bhajans are devotional songs that are interspersed throughout satsang. Some bhajans are in English, others are in Hindi or Sanskrit. A songbook provides the lyrics to all the songs. Prasad is a sweet brought to each person at the end of satsang symbolizing the sweetness of the yogic teachings. Hold the prasad in your hand until everyone has received it. We say a prayer together before eating it. PRAYER LIST The Ashram Prayer List is an important spiritual support and is open to anyone. Each evening at Satsang, Ashram residents chant healing mantras for those on the list. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to place your friends, family or yourself on the Prayer List. Names remain on the Prayer List for 3 months and can be renewed at that time. We ask that you request permission from those you wish to put on the Prayer List. You can also include names of people who have passed.
