Birthday Celebration 2020

Swami Lakshmanjoo was born in Srinagar, Kashmir on May 9, 1907. Each year on this special day we joyously celebrate and remember his birthday. (Add all USF events to your Google Cal, or other calendars (ics).

Puja (Worship) begins at 11.30 a.m. with the singing of sacred Shaivite hymns, which were loved and taught to us by Swamiji.
The day will culminate with the taking of prashad (holy food blessed by the master) consisting of very tasty traditional Kashmiri vegetarian preparations.
The celebration will be held at  our Culver City Center in California, U.S.A.
If you cannot join us in person you may watch the celebrations online via web-streaming. Please subscribe here and we will send you instructions.


On the day following the Birthday, May 10th, to the 13th, the Fellowship will hold its bi-annual four-day study retreat at the Culver City Center. Register here to save your space.

Each day will begin at 9 a.m. with meditation and recitation of Sanskrit verses, personally selected by Swamiji for worship followed by study of Kashmir Shaivism, question and answers, stories of Swamiji, spiritual practice, lunch and snack breaks, yoga and meditation. We usually end at around 6 p.m.
