Satsang in London with Pujya Swamiji and Sadhviji
On Sunday 28th of June, Pujya Swamiji and Sadhvi Bhagawatiji (Sadhviji) gave an extraordinary Darshan and Satsang at St James School in London. Having just arrived in the early evening from Delhi, they entered a fully packed hall, of hundreds of people, into a truly special atmosphere of great devotion created by talented musicians with their Kirtan.
The evening was introduced by Roshni and Shreya Lakhani, who had organised the event. Both have attended the school, which values the finest teachings from all traditions and in particular the Sanskrit tradition. They explained how St James has spirituality and mediation as part of its core ethos, with Sanskrit being part of the compulsory curriculum from the age of 4.
St James pupils sang some beautiful Sanskrit mantras and warmly welcomed Pujya Swamiji and Sadhviji. Shortly thereafter, everyone was so deeply inspired to hear Pujya Swamiji sing some Vedic Mantras, bringing the divine touch of the holy Mother Ganga and the sacred Himalayas to all those present, followed by a blissful meditation led by Sadhviji that stilled the entire room.
The question and answer session that Pujya Swamiji and Sadhviji led after the meditation included questions on how one can stay in the present moment during our hectic lives, the power of stillness, and the nature of the Self. Pujya Swamiji also told everyone about His childhood experiences with His Guru, which touched many people.
It was an extremely divine evening full of love, enlightenment and stillness. Everyone who attended mentioned how overjoyed they felt in His presence and commented on Their articulate and extremely wise answers. Everyone agreed that their special satsang would be an experience that everyone will hold dear forever.
