Full Moon Energies and Ceremonies

The seminar started last Wednesday, and it was the eve of Capricorn full moon. We are a group of 33 persons from 5 countries of the west – one being a young child – from Argentina, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. On the 14th we had a welcome reception in the garden of Sri Kumar and Kumari Garu, with a ceremony for blessing the children. There is a profound story behind this ceremony conducted on the eve of the lunar winter solstice which is celebrated each year around 14th January, and Sri Kumar explained the symbolism of it – going back to the incarnation of the Divine in the form of the Avatara of Vamana.

Wednesday evening we assembled again in the garden for full moon meditation and once more on Thursday morning for a beautiful fire ritual. These were days of very sublime energies. Enjoy the pictures of the meetings.
