Om Namo Bhagavade Sivanandaya

Established in 1949 by Sri Swami Sivananda

Divine Life Society of S.A. celebrated Mahasivaratri online with a Satsang programme on Thursday, 11 March, commencing with Ganga Arati at 5.30pm and concluding the next morning at 5am. Befitting this sacred night, the programme was a veritable spiritual feast with a variety of presentations and devotional offerings to Lord Siva. Kirtans and Bhajans, performances by guest artistes, readings, poems, sayings from our Divine Master, Sri Swami Sivananda, presented by Spiritual Darlings, audio recordings, videos, and chanting featured on the programme.

In his book, Hindu Fasts & Festivals the Master extolled the glory of Mahasivaratri, "This falls on the thirteenth or fourteenth day of the dark half of Phalgun (February-March). Sivaratri means 'the night of Siva'. In the Shanti Parva of the Mahabharata, Bhishma refers to the observance of Mahasivaratri, by King Chitrabhanu, when he was giving the discourse on Dharma, while resting on his bed of arrows". (Due to space constraints we are unable to include the entire story.) The king concludes as follows: "I learnt there for the first time, during my former life as the hunter Suswara, of the great merit I had earned by the observance of the fast on the day of Mahasivaratri, though I did it unconsciously by an accident. I lived in the abode of Siva and enjoyed divine bliss for long ages."

Om Namo Bhagavade Sivanandaya!

The launch of the 41-day Sri Hanuman Chalisa will take place on Wednesday, 17 March 2021 via online audio stream. Beloved Pujya Swami Sahajananda encouraged all to recite the Sri Hanuman Chalisa for protection, safety, peace and the welfare of the world. In this critical period, collective recital of the Sri Hanuman Chalisa will assist in counteracting the scourges of our times. A verse in the Sri Hanuman Chalisa tells us of the power of the Sri Hanuman Chalisa in assisting the world, Naashai Roga Harai Saba Peera Japata Nirantara Hanumata Beera, which translated means, "All diseases are destroyed and pain and sorrow vanish when your great and powerful Name is repeated incessantly".

This 41-day Sadhana is an offering to Sri Hanuman and our Divine Master and will culminate on Monday, 26 April 2021, which is the sacred Sri Hanuman Jayanti.
