Birthday Celebration 2018

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, on the HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWAMIJI!9th of May, by gathering together to sing special Shaivite hymns, and then at 11 am recite the puja verses Swamiji compiled and instructed us to recite many years ago.

The celebration will be held at  our Culver City Center in California, U.S.A.

Birthday CelebrationThe day will culminate with the taking of prashad (holy food blessed by the master) consisting of very tasty traditional Kashmiri vegetarian preparations and concludes with singing of Bhajans.

On the day following the Birthday, May 10th, to 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…
