Wednesday, September 28 - Saturday, October 8: For 11 days prior to his birthday we chant the shabad Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru for 31 minutes. This is the Shabad of Miracles. We do this together at each others homes at 7pm. See the CALENDAR to find out where to go each night! Show up! Yes, your presence is powerful so please come to as many chanting events as you can - this will amplify the effect for you and for all those there. If you can't make it, chant on your own when you can!
Sunday, October 9: This is the day we celebrate Guru Ram Das Ji's birth, when we have a special sadhana of chanting Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru for 2 ½ hours in the Amrit Vela (see Sadhana page for more info on this potent time for meditation).
Japji will begin at 4am at Awakenings Wellness Center followed by 2.5 hours of chanting.
Yogi Bhajan has described this occasion as a powerful time for the fulfillment of prayers and a time of great blessing. One idea is to write your prayers down and have a place a special box or container that everyone can add to as the 11 days progress. Then, after the birthday sadhana, have a ceremony and burn the prayers, sending them out to the Infinite. Allow the divine healing energy of Guru Ram Das to take care of you.
