6 HR GAYATRI YAGNA WITH SWAMI ANASHUYA

24, June, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

HONOURING THE COSMIC MOTHER

Gayatri-devi is a five-headed goddess who sees everything in all directions at once. She is the universal cosmic aspect of the Divine Mother, Mother of the Vedas, the five elements and all of creation. Performing yajna is an act of worship that is done as a selfless sacrifice for noble purposes. During the yajna we offer our prayers of love and gratitude to Gayatri-devi for all She does for us.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

This beautiful ritual lasts for 6 hours. It begins with special prayers and pujas before lighting the yajna fire. During the yajna, participants will chant repetitions of the Gayatri mantra and make continuous offerings into the fire. The event ends with an abhishekam and arati to Gayatri-devi, and prasad is given to all.

DID YOU KNOW?

Gayatri-devi is the personification of the 24-syllable Gayatri Mantra which is repeated throughout the 24-hour yajna. Her Gayatri Mantra is a ‘moksha mantra‘ which means chanting it with devotion can lead one to liberation.

Om bhur bhuva svaha
Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dhimahi
Dhiyo yonah prachodayaat

MEANING: ‘Oh Divine Mother, I meditate on Thee as the Supreme Light that illumines the earth, the sky and the heavens, the adorable Sun of Divine Consciousness that illumines the devas and dissipates all darkness and ignorance. Through Thy Grace, may You enlighten my intellect and awaken the same brilliant Divine Light in me.’
