On Sunday, October 14, we had a "Unitarian Universalist Appreciation of Navratri" at the UU Congregation in Andover.
To the left is a photo of (top to bottom) pictures of Durga, Saraswati, and Lakshmi in the front of our sanctuary that morning.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I made my own ghee and camphor oil to make lamps. On Sunday, I used the camphor oil because I wasn't able to warm up the ghee at the last minute. (See picture below.) I did the best I could with the Sanskrit. I've been studying it some on my own, but I'd love to take a class.
Today, for the first actual day of kirtan, I went to the Chinmaya Mission Boston in Andover. What a welcoming place! I had a wonderful experience meditating and worshipping there.
Later this week, I plan to go to the Sarva Dev Mandir in Oxford. As I posted about previously here, I have a special love for Hinduism.
Unitarian Universalists for Hindu Awareness. To the left is the logo (so far, and totally unofficial!) for the group. If you are a UU who wants to learn more about Hinduism, or if you are a UU Hindu, or a Hindu UU, or if you just want to know more, please "like" the FB page. If you are on Twitter, you can follow the UUHA Twitter page, too.
