AGNI HOTRA

The ashram performs Agni Hotra (fire puja) daily at 7:50am in the Vedic tradition. We have handbooks with Vedic mantras in Romanized Sanskrit and the English translation. Residents and guests are welcome to experience and learn this ancient Indian ritual.

KIRTAN

Kirtan is the chanting of names, or archetypes. It is a melodious, uplifting practice that encourages the surrender of the ego, and letting go of constructs which hold us back from free-flowing energy and opening the heart. There is no need to be a good singer, or to know a lot of information about the ‘names’. Whether the kitran be related to Krishna and unconditional love, or Shiva, and welfare or transformation, by chanting kirtan you will experience on your own what this practice has to reveal to you.
Kirtan is usually twice a week: Tuesday and Thursday evenings 7 – 8PM or 8:30PM.
