Guru Poornima at Manav Bhawan Dubai

Sri M said…..

“The most important sadhana here is to worship the Guru, look at Him, meditate upon Him, and also follow the teachings that He has given, the most important of which is to consider all other living beings as part of yourself, because, if you don’t have that, then all this worshiping is of no use”

 

As you may be aware, coming 12th July 2014 is the day when we celebrate Guru Poornima. There is a grand event being held in Madanpallie and many people are gathering to take Master’s blessings on this special occasion. For those of us who will be here in UAE, let us meet at Manav Bhavan on Saturday6pm sharp. The tentative schedule will be as following:

1. 6 pm – watching Master’s talk on a previous Guru Purnima

2. 6.45 pm – meditation

3. 7.15 pm – bhajans

4. 7.45 pm –Prasad

5. 8.30 disperse silently

Please feel free to bring your offering of Prasad but would appreciate if you keep Rekka (050 478 2014) in the loop so we do not end up with too much of food/ same food. 

Sri Gurbhyo Namaha

Rekha & Param

p.s.See you all on Friday for mediation.

Sri M on All India Radio’s National Programme of Talks

Sri M on All India Radio’s National Programme of Talks

Posted: 10 Nov 2013 05:56 AM PST

Sri M’s interview with Manoj Mainkar will be broadcast nationwide on All India Radio’s National Programme of Talks.

Please note that it is on Nov 12, 2013 at 9:30 PM.

The broadcast is on Medium Wave and on DTH.

It is our understanding that this broadcast by AIR National channel in Delhi will be relayed by Medium Wave channels across India on their programme ‘National Programme of Talks’ which is broadcast every Tuesday at 9.30 pm. However, some AIR Stations may not relay this broadcast if they have a preference to a Hindi over English broadcast (Sir’s interview is in English).

AIR Bangalore is on 612 KHz on the Medium Wave and most other South Indian stations like Hyderabad, Chennai, Trivandram will relay the English talk and local residents of these cities and towns could tune in over their local AIR CHANNEL frequency.

It should also be possible to tune-in the Delhi channel through DTH and listen to the Audio (as there is anyway no video)

We will subsequently try to make this broadcast available on the website as a recording.
