Sunday Festival Guest Speaker
February 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
Every Sunday is a mini-festival with delicious multi-course vegetarian meals, music and spiritual discussion (and occasionally, dance and drama), guests can experience the world’s oldest cultural tradition. The programme provides an opportunity for anyone to learn about the lifestyle and culture of those who practice bhakti-yoga.
The evening starts with Bhajans (devotional singing) followed by Aarti.
Aarti is derived from the Sanskrit word आरात्रिक (ArAtrika) which means something that removes rātrī, darkness.
It’s an ancient and very beautiful ceremony which is an expression and offering of love, gratitude, and prayers to the divine Lordships Radha and Krishna, the Objects of our meditation.
Following the Aarti ceremony is the discourse on spiritual topics. Topics vary each Sunday and are typical intellectually and emotionally stimulating.
After the discourse is time for a multi-course vegetarian spiritualized karma-free dinner!
