Krishna Jayanthi Celebration
LIVE SATSANG, 8:00pm ET
“Krishna, who has become the Beloved of India and the world at large, had a threefold objective: to destroy the wicked demons, to play the leading role in the great war fought on the battlefield … and to become the centre of a marvelous development of the Bhakti schools of India.”
— Swami Sivananda
On this evening we will celebrate the life of Lord Krishna with a special puja and joyous chants to Lord Krishna.
Lord Krishna is held to be the “Yogeshwara,” “Lord of Yoga,” and “Jagad Guru” — the Guru of the whole world. It is Lord Krishna who gives teachings on every aspect of life to Arjuna in the famous yogic scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. We celebrate his birthday at midnight and commemorate the teachings he brought to the world.
Enjoy many blessings on this auspicious evening, including prayer, pujas, and delicious prasad. All are welcome.
Satsangs begin with 30 minutes of silent meditation and 15 minutes of chanting.
This program is offered live through Zoom webinar with the availability for students to interact through Q&A with the presenter.
For enrolled students, a video recording will be available after each class in the event you miss a class or would like to review the content.
It is possible to register and take the course at any time. You can catch up on any classes you miss with the recordings.
