Happy MahaShivRatri 2015! I am humbled to be at the Sri Sachidananda Yoga Ashram in Penal.
I am surrounded by divinity all around- the music, the Devis, the Devtas, pictures and Divine Beings all around.
Swami Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Sri Sri MahaAvatar Babaji, Sri Adi Shankaracharya, Shodasha Datta Kshetras, Shabari, Lord Rama, Sri Karya Siddhi Hanuman, Tulsidas, Sant Guru Kabir, Swami Vivekananda, Buddha, Dayanand Saraswati, Srila Prabhupada, Sathya Sai Baba, Sant Keshvadas, St Francis of Assisi and Maharishi Mahest Yogi greet devotees as they adorn the walls with their smiles.
This blessed evening unfolds with Guru Paduka puja, the procession, the offering of the Kalsas, Rudra Homa, Lord Shiva puja and offerings, chanting the name of Lord Shiva. Throughout the evening it is interactive, Pundit Varun of Mysore India keeps us informed, he explains and allows us to participate in worship to Lord Shiva.

We got home the next day. We found out that after we left The Honourable Prime Minister Mrs Kamla Persad Bissessar visited the Ashram to make her offering with her grandson.
Pictures of her visit are available on the Ashram’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ssya.penal
Jai Guru Datta! Sri Guru Datta!
