EKAM CEREMONIES

Powerful Rituals performed inside Ekam for You

UNIQUENESS

Ekam ceremonies are powerful rituals performed inside Ekam sanctum to honour and celebrate the various aspects and stages of life that each and everyone of us pass through in life. During these pivotal moments of life, your consciousness opens up to various samskaras to flow into you. Samskaras are impressions in consciousness that could surface from your previous lives, your ancestors, from people who are closely connected to you whom we call the ‘soul circle’ and they could also flow from the collective consciousness of humanity. The kind of samskaras that you draw into yourself depends largely on your state of being. Hence Ekam ceremonies are powerful rituals that transform your consciousness so you may draw auspicious, powerful and great samskaras into you and your family members for the fulfilment of a great destiny on this earth plane.

Ekam ceremonies are created to fulfil the great vision of Sanatana Dharma, that existed in India almost 8 thousand years ago, which upheld the immense sacredness of human life. When humanity will awaken to the sacredness of their own existence, then we a s a collective will begin to treat nature, other life forms and mother earth with sacredness and respect. Ekam ceremonies will bring back the sacred into the mundane and uplift every aspect of your life towards divinity.

During the Ekam Ceremonies you will have the great blessing of understanding Sri Preethaji’s and Sri Krishnaji ’s wisdom on the various aspects of human life. You will not only partake in a ritual but also partake in a huge spiritual journey that they envision for every human being on earth to live a complete life. Every ceremony will be a powerful spiritual experience that would transform the way you experience life and relationships.

In the Ekam ceremonies you will be connecting to the divine power of the Hiranya Garbha. The Hiranya Garbha symbolises the power of the Divine or God in whatever form you choose. In our Sanatana Dharma, the Hiranya Garbha is referred to as the first visible manifestation of the Unmanifest Bramhan or the Cosmic Consciousness. In the Rigveda Hiranyagarbha is said to have arisen in the beginning, the one being, who upholds heaven and earth, who gives life and breath and the one animating principle of all creation. The Hiranya Garbha manifested in Sri Bhagavan in his early childhood and later in Sri Krishnaji when he was 11 years old. Through them it flowed through as the magnificent phenomenon of Deeksha (Oneness Blessing) that has today touched the lives of several millions. The Hiranya Garbha is the all encompassing Cosmic Consciousness that will manifest to you in the form or way you choose. Ekam Ceremonies are the Muhurtas (time units) when the doors to the divine open for you to have a direct personal experience and receive blessings.

The Adhvaryas(officiators of the ceremony) are faculty leading a monastic life, who are mentored by Sri Preethaji and Sri Krishnaji to live in a transformed consciousness and serve humanity and the divine. Their prayers are heart-felt and powerful owing to the sacred bond of connection they hold with their Antaryamin(divine within). These ceremonies are performed with greatest sanctity and profound dedication by them.
