Program for Guru Purnima 2020

6:00-7:30 p.m. – Swami Radha, Chris Young, and Emilio Bettaglio will lead a Havan Puja.

All are invited to virtually participate in the havan at 6:00 p.m.  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.  

The mantras that will be recited are:
21 Gayatri recitations
21 Saumya with Tare Tut Tare recitations
108 Akhanda Mandala recitations
21 Maha Mrityunjaya recitations
Purnam Adhuti recitations
Shreem Gurave Namah recitations

Mantras available here  for printing.

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.
