News Update from Dharmakshetra - February 2016


 

 

 


 

Maha Shivarathri Programme at Dharmakshetra

 

 

"You will be immensely benefited if you keep awake and sing the glory of God at least on this night (of Shivaratri). Moon is the presiding deity of the mind. Moon has 16 Kalas (phases). On the Shivaratri, 15 Kalas merge in God and only one remains. By constant remembrance of God, the 16th phase also merges in God. Can you not spend a single night in the whole year singing the glory of God? Sanctify this night by participating in Bhajans. The bliss that you get in Bhajans, the sweetness you experience in the divine name, the happiness you derive from visualizing the divine form cannot be obtained elsewhere." Sai Baba

 

With the immense blessings of Bhagwan, the Shivratri Bhajans in the city of Mumbai will be held at Dharmakshetra and will commence from 5.30 pm on 7th March (Monday) to 6 am on 8th March (Tuesday). The time allocation will be as under :-

Sai Padhuga Pooja in Dharmakshethra on 7th February, 2016

 


Sai Padhuga Pooja was held in Dharmakshetra on 7th February 2016 by Kandivali, Borivali and Dahisar Samithis. The worship and adoration to Bhagavan Baba's sanctified Padhugas gave a new fillip to the various functions being conducted in Dharmakshetra.

By worshiping the feet of one who is grounded in the Ultimate Truth of God consciousness, we are invited to awaken that same consciousness and Supreme Love in our own hearts. Associating with such worship of those who are spiritually advanced will accelerate one’s own spiritual progress.

Lord Rama left His pair of sandals to rule over Ayodhya in His absence. The pair of sandals represented the spirit of humility in rulership by Lord Rama even in His absence. At Dharmakshetra the devotees worshipped the pair of sandals representing Bhagawan's Lotus feet during the elaborate pooja held today at Shantideep.

In one of Swami's earlier discourse after the Padhuga Pooja was performed in Prasanthi Nilayam, Bhagawan said that "You have all come from different places for worshiping the Padhukas and deriving the bliss therefrom. It is indeed a good act. It is not sufficient if you merely worship the Padhugas. Concentrate on them. Without concentration what is the point in worshipping Padhugas?"

Bhagawan has reminded us through the first bhajan which he sang .... " O mind, dwell on the Lotus Feet of the Divine Teacher Sai. Your cares and worries will be washed off. Dwell on the Lotus feet of that Omnipresent, Omnipotent Divine Consciousness, that Most Blissful One, Sai, who is none other than Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. He is verily the universal absolute God. Chant His sacred name...."

The program began with the lighting of the lamp, Omkaram and Vedam Chanting. This was followed by Ganapati Homam. Thereafter Rudra Abhishek and Padhuga Pooja were performed.

A Palkhi procession was also held.

The programme ended with Maha Arathi to Bhagawan
