Ganesh Chaturthi – Bhajans
Karma Yoga – Study Circle
Sunday, Sept 4th 2022 @ 10 AM
Sri Sathya Sai Baba says “Vinayaka is also called Vighneswara (remover of obstacles). No obstacle can come in the way of one who prays to Vinayaka. Worship of Vinayaka confers success in spiritual as well as worldly endeavours. God grants happiness at two levels, pravritti (outward) and Nivritti (inward). Pravritti is related to physical body and Nivritti to intellect.”
This Sunday, we will start off with Ganesh Bhajans Offering and then we will chant 21 Sai Gayatri prayer chanting as part of our ongoing 1008 Sadhana.
After this we will continue with our regular study circle facilitated by our Devotional Coordinator Br. Amit Palicha. The details for our discussion on this Sunday are below.
Karma Yoga First, the yogi of action (karma-yogi). The yogi adopts the path of establishing union with Godhead by elevating and sublimating acts. We meet in the world many who seem to have been born just to accomplish one particular mission or project. Their intellect is not satisfied with mere imagination or planning. Their minds are full of actual concrete achievements that they yearn to realize. For such people, a guidebook or scripture is needed to direct them along beneficial paths.
Everyone in the world is seen engaged in some activity or other, all the time. Yet, very few know the significance and worthwhileness of activity (karma) or how best to realize the best results out of this inescapable trait. Hence, life is being made banal and barren. The yoga of action teaches the awareness of this significance and guides people along to achieve the maximum benefit out of the activity. Where, when, and how action (karma) has to be done, how spiritual urges can reinforce strength of mind in the performance of action, and how action is to be taken up so that spiritual development can result —these are taught by the yoga of action.

1008 Sadhana Offering 21 Sai Gayatri – Prayers Chanting this Sunday
“The purpose of life is to know one’s own self”. Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) helps us to understand the questions,
“Who am I? | From where did I come? | Where am I going to? | How long I will be here? “
1008 days of sadhana program is to practice sadhana. Sadhana (Spritiual Practice) will help us to reach our goal of spiritual realization. Once you start practicing something, eventually that becomes an habit where there is no need for any Sadhana offerings. There is no time limit of 1008 days as this is always a life long Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that all of us have to follow.
Note: This is an progressive Sadhana Offering that will cover an span of 4 years leading to Sri Sathya Sai Baba 100th Birthday Celebrations.
The 1008 Sadhana offering was launched (start of 96th Birthday offering (96 days leading to 96th Birthday)) on Thursday August 19th 2021. Please join as this is open for all Children, Young Adults and Adults. Where ever one may be, you can still follow the sadhana (Spiritual Practice) that will help you to answer the above questions.
