Summer solstice 22-23 June 2013
THANKS TO ZULEYHA MURAT YUNUS ELIF and THE CLIMBER's GARDEN TEAM, we could organise a humble yet wonderful celebration for the SUMMER SOLSTICE, in the form of
-- EVENING PROGRAM = MAHA MRITYUN JAYA MANTRA and HAVAN - fire ceremony - followed by KIRTANS and PRASAD
MAHA MRITYUN JAYA MANTRA is also called the UNIVERSAL HEALING MANTRA, and contains in its vibrations the power of HEALING any creature at any level, be it physical, emotional, mental, psychic, and spiritual ... we chant this mantra at least every saturday evening for the benefit of all, and also for many yoga practitionner,s it is part of our daily sadhana, daily chanting, and for yoga teachers, it is part of the opening of the class ...
-- SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAM = SALUTATIONS TO THE SUN - YAJNA dedicated to DIVINE MOTHER - the Cosmic Force of CREATION residing in each and every parcel of the Creation -
YAJNA is composed of HAVAN - fire ceremony - MANTRA chanting of sanskrit syllabes creating positive and powerful vibrations - DAAN offering of herbs to the Fire, and of Prasad, food shared between all participants and imbibed with the energy of the mantras -
YAJNA is a very powerful Tantric practice allowing us to ATTUNE our energy with the COSMIC ENERGY, enabling us thus to FEEL THE PRESENCE, to FEEL THE COSMIC FORCES which are always around us but which we usually cannot feel because of the so many distractions disturbing our minds all the times ...
After breakfast the program continued with =
YANTRA = Adult yogis and yoginis performed LAKSHMI GANESH YANTRA and Children SUN and MOON MANDALAS
a YANTRA is also part of the TANTRIC practices, it is a geometrical drawing which generates vibrations, this time not audible but visible vibrations, just like colors have frequencies, and these vibrations attune our beings to specific vibrations in the cosmos, in our case, that of LAKSHMI and GANESH, the symbols of PROSPERITY ABONDANCE and STRENGTH TO CROSS OBSTACLES
YANTRA is performed while chanting a specific MANTRA which also corresponds to the ENERGY that we are calling
once the YANTRA is realised, the ENERGY called is HERE, the COSMIC FORCE that we have called is here, we may feel it or not, it is here.
after this powerful practice, it is time for KARMA YOGA, preparing food, nice brunch, or rest, walk, just to let the vibrations imbibe our beings ... and let things happen by them selves..
and the end of the program is the DISSOLUTION OF THE YANTRA and MANDALA
as we have "called" the energies of LAKSHMI and GANESH, they have "come " and responded to our call;
then it is time to "let them free" , thus we dissolve the shape by throwing the whole drawing in the air, back to the sky, back to Nature , back to the Cosmos ...
and then it is just time to rest, have tea, and let life continue the cycles of day and night, let the sun go down slowly slowly ....
and we take "rendez vous" for next celebration on the 21- 22 september for the EQUINOXE ... om shanti
