Virtual Satsanga and E-Study Groups

Hari Om Devotees!

Hope you and your family are staying safe and well. We have missed our regular in-person satsangs. But we are temporarily adapting to virtual means to stay spiritually connected during these unprecedented times. We are offering e-Satsanga and e-Study Groups for all adult study groups. There will be one combined discourse by Swamiji in the morning for both AM & PM sessions. Swamiji discourse will be followed by separate study group sessions for each of our AM groups. The PM study group will have their own study groups separately.

Parents do look out for emails from their respective Bala Vihar teachers with links for E-BalaVihar starting next week. Below is the schedule of E-Discourses and E-Study Group sessions with the respective Zoom Links; Please follow the Zoom Etiquette listed below After the E-Satsang with Swamiji @ 9 AM to 10 AM, please leave the e-Satsang room, and switch to the Study group link for your respective Study group. Study groups will continue to discuss their assigned texts moderated by the Study Group Sevak.

If you have not attended a discussion group at Badri, you are welcome to join the 1st group – Kindle Life – which is the beginner text. If you are familiar with any of the other texts, please feel free to join that session.

[Note: eBooks of Kindle Life and some other texts are available on the App Store, Google Play and Kindle, search “Chinmaya” Daily Family Prayer from Swami Swaroopananda, Global Spiritual head In addition to all the physical measures being taken to eradicate the virus, I request members in Chinmaya Mission Centres worldwide to daily chant – Hanuman Chalisa and Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah. .. for the good health of everyone and the restoration of world peace. It may not be understood by all, but prayers do have a mystical power of their own.

PLEASE NOTE TO PROTECT FROM ZOOMBOMBING WE HAVE TAKEN OUT THE ZOOM LINKS FOR THE STUDY GROUPS.  PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL OR CONTACT YOUR STUDY GROUP COORDINATOR.
