Namaste Devi Mandir Global Family,
In the last one month, as the world around us rapidly changed in a kind of metamorphosis that none of us ever thought we would witness in our lifetime, Shree Maa and Swamiji safely kept our hearts firmly anchored to God and to Sadhana.
Shree Maa performed Navaratri under lockdown in Guwahati, Assam, successfully concluding Her three year Navaratri sankalpa at Kamakhya.
Swamiji performed his Sadhana anusthan in Southern California, while tending to his Mother.
Between the two of them, they skillfully balanced, supported, and protected the entire Devi Mandir family across the globe.
Over Chaitra Navaratri, as the pandemic fear and unrest grew all around us, we took the collective Sankalpa as a family to not bow down to fear, but rather to focus on our Sadhana and to pray for the well being of humanity at large.
By focusing extensively on Sadhana under the guidance of our Gurus, we all emerged victorious on Vijayadashami day!
We want to send blessings for the completion of Navaratri, to highlight all the wonderful things Devi Mandir family are contributing: Sadhana, prayers, classes, encouragement through social media, everything we can do while maintaining our social distancing.
Check out and join our online satsangha, sankalpa and sadhana:
Daily Online Satsangha
We have been using Whatsapp (to join email email@example.com) and Google Hangouts extensively for sharing daily satsangha.
Please join us HERE every day at 8:00 PM PST for the US; 8:30 AM India; and 4:00 AM UK to listen to Swamiji read the Chandi Path and other scriptures in English and talk about its meaning.
Or you can listen to the recorded classes after they are posted any time at your convenience by clicking HERE, or by going to: https://soundcloud.com/devi-mandir.
We are planning to continue this daily satsangha and, after finishing the Chandi Path reading, we will embark on other scriptures and books. Our goal is to continue to increase our global outreach and to touch more lives. Jai Maa!
Every month Shree Maa and Swamiji guide the community in a short sankalpa in which all of us can participate. Global participation in these sankalpas makes it even more powerful.
April’s sankalpa is very much in tune with what the world needs right now – healing. Click APRIL SANKALPA and begin this seva for world peace, harmony, and healing.
On April 4, Shree Maa shared this message with all her children:
I request and pray to you all to chant Devyah Kavacham everyday. These mantras provide an armor of protection.
There is so much battle going on in this world right now. Each of us needs to protect our five-element body by keeping Divine Mother’s energy with us. These mantras will protect us.
Mother will be happy and bless us.
Here are some resources to help you learn the Devyah Kavacham:
