This Sunday, December 15th 2019 we will have our regular SSE Classes at Hindu Center from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. From 2:00 PM we will have our regular Bhajans followed by Study Circle topic “Engaging in Collective Sadhana (Spiritual Practices)”  The following quotes have been taken from the Unity / Purity theme as suggested by the SSIO as part of 95th Birthday Conference in 2020. We will as well be initiiating the 95th Birthday Sadhana from January 2019 (while we have already received some informtion from our region 2 to follow 95th Birthday Sadhana Program). We will be using this time to discuss the need for Collective Sadhana for next two study circles and then engage ourselves in Sadhana activities where possible.

 
The study circle details are as follows…
 
Engaging in Collective Sadhana (Spiritual Practices)

Learn to live in love and harmony with all the  members  of  your  society.  This  is  the  basic  teaching  of  Christianity  and  Islam.  Guru  Nanak  favoured  community  prayers  in  preference  to  individual  prayer  in  isolation. When all people join in unison to pray to God, their prayers will melt the heart of God.  In  a  large  gathering  there  must  be  at  least one who prays with a pure heart. That prayer   will   reach   God.   Hence,   devotees   should  take  part  in  community  bhajans. They should participate in community service  and  involve  themselves  in  the  life  of  the community. This is the noblest path. Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.23/Ch.36: 25 Dec 1986 (Download Here) -> http://sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume23/sss23-36.pdf

Sometime  ago  a  devotional  exercise  called  Likhitha  japam  (writing  the  names  of  the  Lord  as  a  form  of  worship)  was  started  in  Tamil  Nadu.  It  was  a  collective  (Samashti) exercise. Large numbers of devotees assembled at one place and wrote the name of the Lord as a (spiritual exercise). The joy to be derived from such a collective effort is inde-scribable.The community bhajan in which all join to sing in unison is an equally blissful experi-ence.  This  community  singing  was  started  by  Guru  Nanak.  During  community  sing-ing  divine  vibrations  emerge  sanctifying  the  whole  atmosphere.  The  same  result  cannot  be  expected  when  one  sings  alone.  Community singing promotes unity which leads to purity and Divinity. Today there is no unity, purity or Divinity. What mankind needs today is unity based on the spiritual oneness of humanity.
