New Moon Eclipse Puja with Swami Umesh Yogi Ji of Rishikesh School of Yoga

Swami Umesh Yogi Ji will be offering his services in performing the ancient art of Puja bringing in August's New Moon Eclipse!


What is Puja ?

Pujas are performed to avert and clear the three types of obstacles which arise due to the lack of merit, which prevent us from achieving our worldly and spiritual goals. Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities.
 There are three types of obstacles:

Worldly obstacles: 

Affecting our day to day life, relationships, business, and finances.

Inner obstacles: 

Affecting mental and physical health in the form of strong emotions, confusion, and associated physical problems.

Secret obstacles:

Obstructing the attainment of wisdom, experienced as difficulties in Dharma practice.

Participants are encouraged to bring fruit or flowers in addition to a $20.00 suggested donation.
