Janmashtami Celebrations

On Thursday, September 7, we will celebrate Janmashtami, a Commemorative Service honoring the birth of Bhagavan Krishna. The service will begin at 8 p.m. and will be preceded by a silent meditation from 7 – 7:45 p.m. During the meditation, ushers will allow late arrivals to enter silently.  Please bring a flower and a monetary offering in an envelope as symbols of devotion and loyalty to our Gurus.

On Saturday, September 9, we will have a long Kirtan meditation for Bhagavan Krishna from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. There will be a 30-minute break at 12:30 p.m. and group Energization Exercises at 9:40 a.m.

Directly following the Sunday reading service next Sunday September 10, we will have a 1-hour chanting session of bhajans held in the chapel from 12 – 1 p.m. Longer periods of chanting will be interspersed with brief periods of meditation. All are welcome, including children, for any length of time.
