A journey towards spirituality and enlightenment.

A journey towards spirituality and enlightenment.

What a lovely  experience  going to the  ashram in Sonepat.   A spiritual environement surrounded by the  lovely chanting  of the mantras, the  young  girls singing bhajans, acharayas  giving speeches that are  enlightening  and are applied in day to day  life experiences .  There  were also young  girls who had come from  a school in jharkand who   recite
d  some poems   based on spirituality in a manner in which  the audience  understood what was trying to  be conveyed through the poems.

For those who do not know about  the arya samaj I will discuss  briefly the chief  beliefs of  the arya samaj. Efforts   have been made to implement these beliefs in  gurukuls in India. They are:

  1.  Equality of human beings in forming an opportunity for all.
  2.  Empowerement of women as described in the Vedas.

I remember from the time I was younger I would sit for the havan and chant all the mantras religiously and am grateful for learning that from my grandfather who made sure we sit for the havan everyday.  These mantras also helped  me gain positive energy and create that ray of hope when things do not go in a particular direction.

This is the gayatri mantra which I also chant before going to sleep.
