Durga Pooja, Oct 2018

Sairam.

Sharad Navarathri is an especially auspicous event in the Shivanadam calendar.  Since 2006,  Babaji( Sri Shivananda) has single-handedly crafted Maa Durga statues, for every Durga Pooja.  He painstakingly carves, colors and decorates the statues himself with an attention to detail that is difficult to imagine. 

This year, Babaji started the idol preparation activities from 05 September.  

The Navarathri Poojas began from Sahshti (Day 6) and was celebrated in a traditional Bengali way with all the traditional rituals including havan,  aarti,  dhaak and the Dhunuchi dance performed by Babaji. The festival concluded with Visarjan (immersion of all the idols) on the final day in the local river Bhaner (Bener).


Venue: Shivanandam Nivas, Kangra
Dates: 17 to 19 October 2018

चलते रहो - a poem by Sri Shivananda

छोड़ो इन बातों में पड़ना मत
संसार मे बहुत सुख भरा पड़ा है॥
शायद अभी नही मिला।तो कल मिलेगा।
आज तक नही मिला है तो कल भी नही मिलेगा।
ये कौन कह सकता है,
खोदो थोड़ा और शायद जल स्त्रोत मिल जाये।
थोड़ी मेहनत और जल्दी थको मत।
मनजील ज्यादा दूर नही थोड़ा और चलो
इतना चले हो थोड़ा और चल लो॥
इतनी जिंदगी गवाई है। थोड़ी और दाव पर लगा के देख लो
और फिर नही होगा कुछ ऐसा नही है।

शिवानद।।।।।।

 

Translation of the above poem:
Don't fall in all these things
There lies a lot of happiness in this world,
If not now, tomorrow you will achieve
If not till today, tomorrow also you won't get it, 
Who says so?
Dig a bit more, you are very near
Little more efforts, retire not
Destination is not far, keep walking
Having come so far, walk a bit more
Having wasted so much life, once just give little a chance
And then see how it won't not happen!

Shivananda।।।।।।
