Go Navaratri and Annual Texas Retreat at the Temple of Compassion November 8-18, 2018
You are lovingly invited to the Temple of Compassion’s first annual Go Navaratri celebration which coincides this year with the annual Texas retreat. Come receive powerful blessings and deepen your practice and connection to the Divine in the presence of holy company on this sacred land.
“Go Navaratri is the time for us to awaken and create peace and prosperity…through new understanding of the significance of the Mother Cow.” - Paramahamsa Prajnanananda Go Navaratri 2017
Go Navarati is a nine-day celebration dedicated to the Divine Mother in the form of the cow. In ancient Vedic times this practice was done in recognition of the concentrated, powerful blessings in desi (Brahman) cows. Although it was once common, it has been forgotten with the passage of time. Part of our Beloved Guruji’s mission is to reawaken our awareness of the glory of the Divine Mother cow. He is reviving this practice for the benefit of our spiritual growth and the healing and rejuvenation of the environment. People observe fasting, chant, offer oblations, make resolutions to care for cattle and the Earth, and worship the Divine Mother in the form of cows and bulls. We should be grateful and thankful for the cows’ contributions to our lives in all aspects including social, economic, health, ecological, spiritual, and religious.
Modern science has recently proven the importance and positive impact of Indian cows, their A-2 milk, dung, and urine. Western countries are starting to awaken to the sacredness of the Mother cow and the benefits of Brahman cows and their products.
Last year, Go Navaratri was celebrated in large scale in Jagannath Puri, India. Tens of thousands of saints and sages endorsed and participated in this program. This November Kriya Yoga monks, headed by Swami Atmavidyananda, will gather from across the country for this supremely auspicious occasion. The spiritual and environmental benefits and blessings of this celebration are rich beyond our imagination. There will be hours of puja, chanting, discourses, meditation, and fire ceremonies for all ten days. The tenth day of Navaratri, known as vijaya, the day of victory, is said to result in the fulfillment of all noble wishes.
A double blessing! The annual Texas Retreat will be held Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18, 2018. These are the final three days of the Go Navaratri celebration.
