“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
SPECIAL ONLINE EVENT ON THURSDAY, MAY 21ST, 2020
Phalaharini Puja Webcast & Online Kirtan, Satsang
Kali Mandir will be celebrating Phalaharini Kali Puja on Thursday, May 21. This puja is especially significant to us. It is one of the three main Kali pujas of the year; it commemorates the day when Sri Ramakrishna offered the fruit of his actions to Ma and worshiped Sri Sarada Devi as the Goddess Shodashi; and, under normal circumstances, it is also the day when Kali Mandir holds its annual Kali Puja Festival hosting and feeding so many devotees.
Due to the pandemic this year, we are sorry that we cannot physically be together, but we can connect via social media. We’ll start broadcasting the Phalaharini Kali puja and homa from 11 am until 2pm (PST) via Facebook Live. We will also have an afternoon kirtan/satsang program between 4pm and 6pm (PST) that brings together singers, musicians such as Deva, Rampriya Das (Trevor Hall), Sundaram, and Kamalakanta, and our guest speaker Rev. Swami Chetananandaji of the St. Louis Vedanta Society. This will be followed by our evening Mahamritunjaya Mantra sadhana and the evening kirtan.
You don’t need to have a Facebook account to tune in.
