Throughout the ages, enlightened gurus on the path of bhakti have emphasized the essential nature of spiritual association, or “sadhu sanga” for progressing on the path of enlightenment.
The ancient Sanskrit yoga-text, The Nectar of Instruction, defines six loving exchanges between Bhakti Yogis. The loving exchanges include sharing sanctified vegetarian delicacies, group chanting of sacred mantras and discussing spiritual realizations with other practitioners. These enlightening activities are the components of the Bhakti Chakra Groups. A transcendental festival of chanting, mantra meditation, spiritual discussion, socializing and feasting!
By enjoying the friendship of aspiring yogis our spiritual batteries are recharged to propel us on our blissful spiritual path, despite the many challenges of modern life.
The groups are free and everyone is welcome, including the experienced, as well as those new to Bhakti Yoga. We begin with a sweet kirtan, or group chanting, followed by mantra meditation, then a spiritual discussion and, last but not least, a delicious vegetarian feast.
There are groups that meet-up all over the county on different days of the week. Although, all these individual groups always meet in their specified areas of the county, they may meet at different homes each week.
