On 28th August, the Mahammrityunjaya havan presentation was offered as a digital prasad. In their own homes, devotees are able to follow the tradition upheld by residents of Ganga Darshan every Saturday evening. Thus the connection to the spiritual home is strengthened once more.
On 5th July, Guru Poornima was celebrated with a beautiful digital prasad of sound and sight and a lot of inspiration. Devotees were inspired with messages of the Masters, aradhana, live kirtan and new publications. A livestreamed satsang with Swami Niranjan brought the guru parampara and the ashram into homes and hearts around the world.
On 6th November, devotees around the world received the digital Diwali Prasad of kirtan and inspiring messages of the Masters. In the presentation, Swamiji tells the story of the sun, a little deepak and the importance of keeping the light alive in one’s life.
