At the crack of dawn, 32 participants of Dhrti were set to welcome Surya today on this auspicious day of Ratha Saptami. Began with their sankalpa to do Surya Namaskara – yes as per their will power – 16 enthusiastic participants completed 108 rounds.
The event began at 6 am with 3 OMs and shanti path followed by 11 rounds of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and 11 rounds of Gayatri Mantra. The practice of Surya Namaskara began with mantras being chanted by all in each and every round.
Thus keeping the energy following, SURYA NAMASKARA CHAMPS completed 108 rounds in less than 75 minutes and were still energetic. They were honored with certificate as a token of appreciation, encouragement from Dhrti. Closing the session with sweets, shanti path, all dispersed with cheerful spirits.
Dhrti expresses heartfelt gratitude to Venkatesh, 6 pm practitioner, who made arrangements for the place, each and every participant performing Surya Namaskara today in community, and all those who continued with their practice at their place be in Bangalore or other part of the world:-)
Congratulations to one and all. Let us make this day part of our daily routine from now on and continue with this Meditation In Action.
