Grains are essential for the sustenance of human life. They represent prosperity and providence.

Today our Praan Pratishta ceremony kicked off with the Abhishegam of our miniature moortis with grains.

29.03.2017: Day 2 Praan Pratishta

Our moorthis were brought out today!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Buttttttt… they are currently covered in cloth and we are still unable to see them as yet… Our revered Pandatjis and Acharyaji who have come from India for this auspicious ceremony explained to us the steps of the Praan Pratishta, and it won’t be till the end of the week till the Praan
is placed into the moorthis, and they are placed at the altar.

The morning started with prayers, followed by the Abhishegam of Baby Krishna.

After that, we had the Abhishegam of the miniature versions of our moorthis – and everyone who was present was blessed to be able to perform the Abhishegam

We also dedicated a prayer session to our pandatji – Mr. Satyavan Mishraji who has dedicated the last 12 years of his life to Geeta Ashram Malaysia, whose wherabouts, we wish so much, Bhagawan would let us know. We are still actively searching, and praying for his safe return ❤

The morning’s events culminated with a Havan where we recited Chapter 12 and 15 of the Bhagavad Geeta, along with other verses.

Havan

It was truly a blissful day today and we look forward to the next three days!

We hear we may get to see a little bit of the moorthis tomorrow!! 😉

Do join us for this auspicious Praan Pratishta Ceremony!

28.03.2017: Day 1 Praan Pratistha

Jai Shree Krishna. Jai Gurudev.

We had a fantastic opening to this beautiful 5 day long ceremony!

Starting with an obeissance to Ganesh Bhagawan, we then journeyed on to the Kalash Yatra Ceremony and brought in water collected from various temples around Malaysia for the Praan Pratishta.

This was then followed by an Abhishegam of miniature versions of the 5 main moorthis that will be installed on Saturday, culminating with a Havan.

Still no preview of the Moorthis yet, but we are realllllllly excited! We hear they are all in beautiful marble… and oh how we miss our Radha Krishna and yearn to see them! ❤

Here are some pictures from today!
