Satsang (Part 1): Are Pujas and Prayers Distractions From the Divine?
In tonight’s LIVE Divine Satsang from the Sacred Garden at Parmarth Niketan, Pujya Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati ji answers questions about life and living from our global family with inspired answers and insights that take us deeper onto our spiritual path, and help us to heal and transform our lives.
The first question comes from a global family member living abroad who believes in the power of pujas and sadhana, but wonders whether they – once the connection to the Divine is achieved – become distractions from the Divine. To this, Sadhviji responds emphatically with a “No!” They are what helps us experience the Divine, what actually focuses our attention on the Divine – they aren’t the Divine!
Then, a family member in the Garden asks how Sadhviji was transformed when she began wearing first white and then saffron as a Sannyasi. Sadhviji reminds us that we are not the clothes that we wear, but they are a symbol of the way that we move through the world.
Next, another member in the Garden wants to know what we can do to help the powerful and spiritual indigenous people of Brazil who are being raped and killed and harmed through their contact with the outside world. Watch and listen as Sadhviji responds to what is actually a global challenge – and why spirituality is important to counteract the lust for money and power that is so prevalent in the world today.
