:00 p.m. – Fire Ceremony with Emilio Bettaglio Officiating
Compassion, Karunaa in Sanskrit, is one of the four sentiments in Chapter 1, Sutra 33 of “Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.” Also known as Brahma-Vihaaras they are Maitrii (amity, love), Karunaa (compassion), Muditaa (joyfulness), Upekshaa (indifference, equanimity). Given the current level of global human suffering , Karunaa seems an appropriate sentiment to focus on. The havan that will follow the discussion will be an invocation of Enlightened Compassion as personified by Divine Mother Tara.

 All are invited to virtually participate in the havan officiated by Emilio Bettaglio at 8:00 p.m.  If participants wish, they may join the process by performing their own flower/water 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 or can be harvested from their own gardens. Approximately 200 offerings will be made into the havan, each with a petal offering.  

The mantras that will be recited are:

21 – Akhanda-mandalakaram; 21 – Gayatri ; 108 (i mala) – Saumyaa Saumyataraa-Shesha
21 – Maha Mrityunjaya; 3 Purnam Adah recitations; 3 Shreem Gurave Namah recitations

Go into your silence; exhale-release, inhale-accept, forgive and fulfill, with purified heart and mind receive the blessings of the Lineage.”
