Swami says “It is only when science is linked to spirituality that the results of science can be fully harnessed for the good and elevation of mankind”.
We will continue our center activities by linking our technology to spirituality so that we can connect with Swami. Our day begins with our Regular SSE Classes (ONLINE LINK BELOW) scheduled at 12:30 PM.
Our Regular Center Meeting from this week onwards will be held Virtually (ONLINE MEETING LINK BELOW). We will start our regular bhajans at 2 PM followed by “Bhajan Workshop” by Br.

During assigned bhajans 2:00 – 2:40 pm: All will be muted by default only the lead singers will be un-muted as needed when they lead bhajans. 3.

How will the bhajans rendered? (Note: After various options finally we will have the lead singer to render the first line and as well render the chorus by themselves while all of us will join during the chorus (this is done to reduce the latency (lag). At the same time we will have harmonium / tabla played).
1. We will pre-assign bhajan singers and the order will be known. 2. Lead singers are expected to join separately by themselves using cell phones or land line. 3. We will try to have limited instruments where possible to maintain the beat, if not we will just use clapping. 4. We will follow regular sunday pattern of slides, that will be shared on the screen. 5. Since to make it more touching, we can request lead singers to enable video cam so they can be seen while singing bhajan (optional). 6. Closing Prayers will be lead by assigned singer while all of us will render together.. 7. Vibhuthi Mantram is lead by designated singer, please ensure you have vibhuthi at your altar and ensure that your family members get the same.
By Who and How will Arathi be given? 1. When we start arathi, we request all devotees to do arathi at their altars. 2. We will have arathi’s offered by all devotees at their homes at the same time. So please be ready with deepam / or others. 3. During this time you can all show your video camera so we can all see all arathi’s that are done at the same time.
NOTE: Please kindly forgive and excuse us if this does not meet with your standards. We know this cannot mimic the real time bhajans session or center meeting but this ensures that we all are wired at the same time to the divine. We will take feed back and continue to improvise for next meetings.
