On March 7th Vedic Heritage,Inc.,celebrated Maha Shivratri with great enthusiasm and boundless exuberance.
This is an imperative day for the devotees of Shiva, who stay awake throughout the night, praying to seek blessings from him. The Shiv Shakti Mandir looked extravagant, adorned with sculptures, malas and lights. As every year, the main attraction was the stunning Barfani Baba (Shivlinga) ice sculpture.
The Ashram was filled with scores of devotees all day and night, and the positive vibrations coming from the chanting of the mantras was felt by all.
The evening started with the first of the “Char Prahar Poojas” at 7:00 PM. Pandit Rameshji rhythmically commenced the Samoohik Pooja. Devotees filled the temple, ready to become a part of the grand pooja; they brought many offerings such as bel patra, ber, Madaar flowers (Shivji’s favorite), fruit and milk. Melodicious & rhythmic “Om Namah Shivay” chant was echoing throughout the temple.
An event like this is impossible to put together without the help of our great team of supporters, devotees, sponsors and volunteers. We would like to thank each one of them.
Ohm Namah Shivay!
Jai Sri Hanuman!
