Samuh Shreemad Bhagvat Saptah Parayan
We are pleased to announce, with the blessings of our Sadguru Mahant Swami Shree Dharmanandan Dasji, Shree Swaminarayan Temple Willesden will be hosting the first Samuh Shreemad Bhagvat Saptah Parayan in the UK from Monday 22nd November to Sunday 28th November 2021.
During these restricted times, no one has had the opportunity to go to India to carry out kathas for their loved ones who have passed away. This Samuh Katha is not just for souls who have passed away, it is also for our own salvation.
With Santos gracing our temple for the first time in almost 12 months, the santos are very pleased to hear about our vision to carry out a Samuh Katha which unifies us all as one big satsang family.
Brahmins and santos will be performing various vidhis and poojans throughout the week for the benefit of our souls.
We extend this invitation to all those who wish to be yajmaans for this Samuh Katha. You can register names at our temple office. There will be prasad bhojan served every evening. The week long event will be celebrated with various auspicious daily activities, including mini utsavs.
On Saturday 27th November, all yajmaans will be able to sit in a special Havan whereby sacred vidhis will be carried out by Brahmins with step-by-step explanations.
This ceremony is considered as one of the Pancha-mahayagnas (5 sacrifices) we should perform as part of a Dharmic life.
In Sanatan Dharma, prayers are offered for our ancestors souls. Through this ritual, we are showing our respect and gratitude towards our departed ancestors. Giving verbal thanks only remains as words, and doesn’t get translated into action. By partaking in this ritual, we are performing action – spending some time for others and chanting mantras. We therefore get purified by creating positive vibrations.
A person owes their physical birth to their lineage and ancestors. Its an opportunity for each one of us to express our gratitude towards our departed ancestors, and pray for their spiritual progress.
