Devotees piously worship at all places. At the Spiritual Park everything is sacred: enshrined murthis, trees, rocks… and here the Tulsi tree…

Our monthly Ganesha Homa organised by our Mission was as usual, a humble pious event for our sishyas and all members of the public. Things are always nicely organised and every sevakar lovingly comes forward to voluntarily give the best of himself in service to the Gods and our Guru.

The ceremony inside the Ganesha Mandapam which usually starts with bajans to build up the spiritual vibration is followed by our sacred fire ceremony officiated by four of our Kulapaties. Hundreds of written prayers are burnt and the homa pit often overflowed by the end of the ceremony. Then a tray of fruits and uncooked rice is offered into the fire by the Talaivar while member Rohit Juggessur will chant a few vedic mantras. A short meditation follows  after this . The whole Park is incredibly very quiet for some five minutes. The meditation over, Kulapati Manon Mardemootoo would read in creole a message from our Guru's teachings. With the Mandapam extension project underway, Kul SK Moorghen gives some update on fund raising. Then Kulapati Rajen Manick animates the short testimony session where devotees come forward to speak or they send written testimonies to be read to everyone. Such testimonies are very uplifting as the public happily responds with clapping of hands. Kulapati Manick also makes an announcement on Hinduism Today to new comers to the Homa to subscribe to Gurudeva's  divine "prow of the ship", usually highlighting on some content of the latest edition, as well as announcing about HA teaching activities for the month. The whole ceremony then concludes with a final arati conducted by Brahmachari Vel assisted by Kulapati Arnasalon. All devotees stand up at this peak spiritual moment.

After the ceremony, lots of devotees rush to the Ganesha Mandapam with their trays of offerings. It becomes again a very busy spot for some two hours or so. A team is always to take care of the flow. 

We share a few photos.... Aum.
