via Zoom a Special New Year’s

Full Moon Puja from 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.


Full Moon Meditation from 9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

To receive the Zoom link for this event, please subscribe to The Meditation Center’s e-newsletter on the home page of this website.

Emilio Bettaglio will be officiating during the puja accompanied by the music and sound enhancements of Chris Young.

As celebration of the full moon and the transition to a new year, a special puja will be performed by Emilio Bettaglio with collaboration by Chris Young at 8:00 p.m. The puja will be followed by the Full Moon Meditation at 9:00 p.m. which will be initiated by a guided contemplation and meditation by Swami Veda Bharati.

As proposed by Swami Ritavan, we’ll recite the following mantras: 

11 Akhanda Mandala,

108 Maha Mrityunjaya

11 Saumya Mantra

1 Guru Brahma (will be sung by Chris Young)

3 Shreem Gurave Namah.

If participants wish, they may join the process by performing their own puja in their homes. All that is needed is a large bowl, such as a clean salad or mixing bowl, some water to fill the bowl about two-thirds full, a candle, and some flower petals. For those who are interested in participating with their own flower/ water havan at home, flower petals can be obtained at most flower shops. Approximately 200 offerings will be made into the havan, each with a petal offering.

Swami Ritavan invites you to join us for a group meditation starting at 9 o’clock in the evening.  Or if you are not able to be present during the zoom meeting, meditate wherever you are at that time.”

Swami Ritavan Bharati has said, “The full moon meditations are an opportunity for us to come together in connecting with the universal mind-field bringing unity, harmony, peace, and love. Go into your silence; exhale-release, inhale-accept, forgive and fulfill, with purified heart and mind receive the blessings of the Lineage.”
