Sri Ramakrishna’s birthday celebration

Sadly the pandemic means we cannot meet together in person for Ramakrishna’s birthday, but your amazing music is so inspiring it gives us an alternative. Satchitananda writes:

Please join in mentally and spiritually in our circle of Bhakti Love for the celebration of Sri Ramakrishna’s birthday on Saturday 20th from 3 to 5 pm.

May we form “a luminous bubble”  filled with  the singing of the names of God, chanting Om, meditating, reading from the GSR, songs, dancing.

And below are a few words, songs, videos and Aums incase you would like to follow a programme.

Self-Satsang this Saturday 30 January

Satchitananda invites us to join mentally and spritually this Saturday at 3pm to create some “good vibes”. Any time you spend will be beneficial and help all of us renew our energy and lift up our spirit. Do take care. Hari Om Tat Sat. With love and thoughts from Satchitananda

Suggested programme:
3-3.30pm chanting powerful mantras for protection

3.30 onwards: your chosen programme

The name of God creates an invisible shadow

God sees self-effort

We must give and share, we are brothers and sisters eternally linked

Put notes in the heart, make it practical, Offer it and God will accept it

Swamiji 1995

We need transformation, conversion of heart and clean soul to polish up our spirituality

Swamiji 1996

Happy New Year 2021

True Love, Invisible Love

MahaYogini composed this beautiful song inspired by words from Swamiji’s discourse at Kedarnath on 1-3 January 1982, 39 years ago! Sarada Devi and Shirdi Sai (pictured) are at the heart of it.

Shirdi Sai Baba is nothing but the lotus feet of the Divine Mother, so he is the answer…

There are more discourses from Swamiji in 1982 and throughout the 80s. We’ll be adding the 90s and 70s this year (I hope!).
