A night of mantras, pujas, kirtan, and meditation.
A night of inner celebration and stillness.
A night like no other....
Join us for this rare night, when transcendence and inner stillness are said to be most accessible.
7pm to 10pm (or to 12:30am, if you can stay!).
Kashi, a widely loved and respected Vedic wisdom teacher from India will lead the ancient Rudra puja, which is designed to honor and enliven Shiva--the transformational and transcendent aspect of nature. There will also be meditation and deep, tuneful Art of Living chanting/kirtan throughout.
“Maha,” in Sanskrit, means great, and «Ratri»means night. This is the yearly night when the moon is furthest away and least felt. So the mind can be most quiet on this night, and it is said to be the year’s most auspicious night for inward experience, for awakening from all sorts of slumber, for the wave to become conscious of the vastness of the ocean; a time when the transcendent is most accessible.
The event will be led by Kashi, who has taught and traveled extensively with spiritual leader and humanitarian Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He has guided schools and Vedic wisdom programs and yoga programs in India and around the world, and introduced many to the transforming Sudarshan Kriya practice, part of the Art of Living Foundation’s Happiness Program.
