This event has ended.

Sadhana Satsanghs are inclusive, egalitarian, and earth-honoring Hindu worship gatherings. Join us as we reimagine the end of life from a Hindu perspective, through ritual and reflection.

Sadhana Satsanghs are our monthly inclusive, egalitarian, and earth-honoring worship gatherings. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we have felt it is important to nurture both the spirit and the bodies of our members by performing biweekly e-Satsanghs on Thursdays via Zoom.

Join us for an e-Satsangh focused on the theme of reimagining the end of life. During the Covid-19 pandemic, and a time when we are seeing a mass movement protesting against the loss of Black lives, discussions of death, grief, and loss are increasingly common.

How do Hindu traditions urge us to engage with these often-uncomfortable and taboo topics? Join us for a Satsangh as we reimagine the end of life from a Hindu perspective, through ritual and reflection.

Sadhana's Pandita-in-Residence, Pratima Doobay, will bring us together by performing a Shraddha ceremony, traditionally conducted in honor of one's parents and ancestors who have left this world. Pandita Pratima will conduct a Shraddha ceremony for those we have lost due to Covid-19, for those who have been killed due to police violence, and for any loved ones in our lives who have passed during these times.

We will then hear a reflection from Brahmachari Vrajvihari Sharan, Director for Hindu Life at Georgetown University. Finally, we will have a group discussion and sharing.

All are welcome, whether you are Hindu or not! We hope you can join us.

This Satsangh will be live-streamed on Zoom and Facebook Live. Visit our Facebook page to learn more!
