Gppnew3We may or may not have an Outer Guru, but we all have an Inner Guru. The knowledge of the Self is not a natural process; it comes only through efforts graced by God and Guru. It is certain that the mind walks behind someone; lets make it walk behind a saint or Guru. ­

– Swami Abhedananda

Gppnew2GPPnew1Under the guidance of Swami Abhedananda, various rituals are performed to please the Lord for the well­being of everyone. These programs give everyone an opportunity to purify one’s mind and offer one’s thoughts, actions and eventually one’s self to the Lord. All spiritual progress is possible only through the grace and benevolence of the Guru. The scriptures say, when one has his Guru favourable, even the Lord heart is melted and He changes the destiny of such a person for better. Remembering our Param Pujya Gurudev and to invoke his grace, weekly Guru Paduka Pooja is performed at Chinmaya Shivam temple every Thursday. The course students and devotees, all sit together to perform abhishek of Gurudev’s Padukas (sandals), offer flowers, and chant 108 names of Pujya Gurudev.
