The Universal Shaiva Fellowship is happy to announce the Birthday Celebration of our beloved Gurudev Swami Lakshmanjoo. This grand occasion will take place on Saturday, the 9th of May, 2015.
Swami Lakshmanjoo was born in Srinagar, Kashmir on May 9, 1907. Each year on this special day we joyously celebrate and remember his birthday.
We will begin this sacred day at 9 am Saturday morning, on the 9th of May, by gathering together to sing special Shaivite hymns.
Afterwards, at 11 am we recite the puja verses which Swamiji compiled and instructed us to recite many years ago.
The day will culminate with the taking of prashad (holy food blessed by the master) consisting of very tasty traditional Kashmiri vegetarian preparations.This celebration will be held at our Fellowship Center located at 10925 Stever Street in Culver City, California, U.S.A. There is no charge for attending the Birthday Celebration but we accept donations to help cover the expenses.
As usual there is always much preparation to be done for this auspicious event. If you would like to help in any way please call Denise Hughes at (310) 837-0402 (Toll free 1 877-594-2516).
On the day following the Birthday, Sunday, May 10th, to Wednesday the 13th, the Fellowship will hold its bi-annual four-day retreat at the Culver City Center.
Each day will begin at 9 a.m. with meditation and recitation of Sanskrit verses, personally selected by Swamiji for worship.
Following this, using the sacred revelations given by Swamiji, we will examine a number of important texts central to the philosophy and practice of this great tradition of Kashmir Shaivism…
We will send another letter closer to the time of the retreat with the exact study texts that we will cover...
