This morning devotees gathered to offer Paduka Puja (an offering of gratitude to the sacred sandals of the master) followed by chanting from Guru Gita and the daily morning Satsang.  Swamiji continued to expand on the relationship between the inner space we carry and Sannyas.  Swamiji explained that we must make our decisions from the space of completion, from the space of powerfulness, like Maha Kalabairava! We should not take Sannyas out of powerlessness, as an escape from the fear of our current responsibilities.  We must be like Kalabairava, embodiments of Power and Joy – only that space keeps us alive and aware.  Sannyas will only be successful if it is taken from that space.

 

Today is Kalabhairavashtami is the day when Lord Shiva took the form of Kalabhairava. Or in other words,Kalabhairavastami is the day of advent of Lord Kalabhairava. On this day, Lord Kalabhairava makes His presence intense wherever He is worshipped.  On this day, Kalabhairava  removes all the sufferings of the devotees and grants whatever boons they ask.

 

Dial the Avatar calls followed, enriching devotees for Sannyas & the exciting December Bali I.A.  Satsang concluded with individual blessings in Sarva Darshan.
