Gayatri Yagna Report

We chanted now 10.000 times the Gayatri Mantra - all added together it was more than 1 million individual mantras!

The ceremonies started early Saturday morning with a Kalash Puja in which Swamiji invoked Gayatri Devi into the Kalash Pot.

Then - at about 8am the actual yagna started...

...and went on throughout the whole day and night - A few people went to take a short nap or grab a cup of tea in between for a break.

 On the following morning Swamiji performed the closing prayers and the Arati.

We had to clean the tent, wash the dishes and in no time the entrance hall of the centre was empty - everybody went straight to sleep!
