Weekly Words of Wisdom

"There is a powerful mystery within the repetition of sacred words and sounds, for as the repetition occurs, the intension behind the sound intensifies, thus increasing its potency. Sound crystallises intension.

This belief has been practiced for centuries by Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholic Mystics, and Zoroastrian Parsees, who have repeated within sacred sanctuaries chants, mantras, prayers, or single words about God's powerful nature, often thousands of times a day. This intensity of action re-creates the purity of the thought at the centre of the word; as the intention sounds, a powerful possibility is brought into creation. When resonance of the intention occurs again and again it literally relives its original purpose, and thus the word or chant becomes alive with the voice of spirit."

(Stewart Pearce, the Alchemy of Voice)

Chakra Communication

Sun 26th June 10.30am - 4.30pm
with Siri Nirankar Singh in Northampton

Today communication is technically faster through computers, mobile phones, and all knowledge is available at the touch of a button. We have become impersonalized in our day to day communication – sending text messages rather than speaking, emails instead of letters. So our communication skills are not as refined and lack the personal touch that is so essential for us to form a basis of good intimate relationships with others. Join us in an all day workshop to align our chakras for effective communication. Bring a light vegetarian lunch to share, water, yoga mat and blanket for relaxation. Download Flyer.

Investment: £35 in advance, £45 on the day. Venue: Mears Ashby Village Hall, Vicarage Lane, Mears Ashby, Northampton NN6 0EE. Contact Siri Nirankar Singh, info@amritdharma.com or Romi, ahluwaliaromi@aol.com.

In this session we will connect with our womanliness more deeply. We will have the opportunity to take a personal look at the cycle of menopause and what it means to us within a nurturing space. We will practise two Kundalini yoga kriyas: during the first we will work on bringing our emotions into greater balance. Whilst in the second our focus will be to strengthen the glandular system and the liver, thus enabling them to function more efficiently.

Guru Kaur invites us to
"Meditation in the Park"

Sun 26 June 12 - 5pm
at Russia Dock Woodland,
London SE16

Meditation in the Park is one of the major community events happening in Rotherhithe this year with 2,500 people anticipated on the day, funded by the Lottery and Rotherhithe Community Council, with support from the largest Tesco store in London, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, and stallholders from Borough Market. Meditation in the Park is listed in Time Out, and featured in Qype's London mail-out amongst other places (including a Hong Kong based magazine which tells its readership about interesting events happening globally). Last year Simon Hughes, MP for Southwark and Bermondsey, attended and Boris, Mayor of London, has said that he might come along this year. Read more.

You can download the free meditation music which has been produced for the event. This is available to all those who have pre-registered so that they may practise kirtan kriya before coming on Sunday because it is the traditional 2.5 hour continuous meditation at this event. Here's the direct link.

Places of Worship: Varanasi, also known as Benares or Kashi, is a city situated on the banks of the River Ganges in India. It is regarded as a holy city by Buddhists, Jains and Hindus. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and probably the oldest in India. It said to be the founded by Lord Shiva.

Varanasi is one of the seven cities that are mentioned in the Puranas as liberating. Whoever dies here shall be liberated from the cycle of birth and death. The city is famous for its almost 100 ghats, stairs at the banks of the River Ganga, some used for ritual bathing (ishnaan), some serve as cremation grounds. Varanasi is also called the spiritual capital of India or the city of temples; almost every road crossing has a nearby temple.

The Benares Gharana form of Indian classical music developed in Varanasi, and many prominent Indian philosophers, poets, writers, and musicians resided or reside in Varanasi, including Kabir, Ravidas, Guru Swami Ramanand, Trailanga Swami, Munshi Premchand, Jaishankar Prasad, Acharya Shukla, Ravi Shankar, Girija Devi, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Bismillah Khan and Tulsidas. Gautama Buddha gave his first sermon at Sarnath located near Varanasi.
