Invitation to Join, Marlton Gita Study Group,

Starting from September, 11, 2018

Will Meet at ICC, 820 NJ Route_73, Marlton

Every Tuesday at 10:00 AM

Meaning of Yoga, Meditation and Japa Sadhana.

In general, Yoga is physical exercises for well being. However, Yoga has manifold meanings and most appropriate one is

Being in Harmony or Unity. Harmony implies an adjustment of oneself with an environment that is external to oneself.


When there is no proper adjustment of one thing with another thing, we call it disharmony. When there is a proper adjustment, a smooth working of one principle, one fact, one object, one person with another, we regard it as harmony. Now, the question which may arise in our mind at the very outset is, why should harmony be the central objective. Why should harmony be regarded as the essential of life?


The reason is the very structure of the universe. The universe is a system of harmony. We, as human individuals, form part of this universe. We form part of it in such a way that we are integrally related to it. However, in our daily life we find ourselves disassociated with others and many a times with ourselves. Knowledge of The Self and Understanding Ways of Meditation and Japa Sadhana could transform oneself in Harmony with Cosmos, Others, and Oneself. need not emphasise the importance of this work as its subject-matter forms the foundation of spiritual Sadhana. Yajnanam Japayajnosmi- I am the sacrifice of Japa among all sacrifices, says Lord Krishna in the Gita.


In this Kali Yuga (iron age) Japa alone is the easy way to the realization of God!

Spiritual Celebration


Importance of Pitri-Paksha Shradha-Tarpan - Every year, an important period of 15 days (Pitru Paksha or Shraadh) is dedicated to the ancestors and forefathers. Pitru Paksha is considered perfect for performing Tarpan rituals. It is believed that the rituals performed during Shraddh produces best results for pleasing the ancestors. Shradh occurs right before the Sharada Navaratri in autumn. Like every year, Shraddha is coming again in 2018 with a great significance for our ancestors and for us. Shradh marks an important time for performing the ritual of Tarpan. Hindus will perform rituals of Tarpan for their departed ancestors and forefathers this year at our mandir. We will perform Tarpan in Shradh in the way of remembering, giving thanks and honoring the ancestors for all they have given us, the present generations. It is a way of telling them that they are still an important part of our family and they still reside in our memories. Period of Shradh is also known as Pitru Paksha. Shraadh Paksha is also a time to offer our prayers for liberation of our forefathers' Atmas Date: Sept.25th to Oct.9th–according to South Jersey Panchang. Matri Navami Shradha on Thursday Oct 4th, 2018; Sarva Pitri Shadha on Tuesday Oct.9th, 2018. We are introducing two new short pujas during Shraddha Paksha lasting 15-20 minutes through out the mornings between 9:30 and 11:30. No booking needed. For questions, please contact Pujari Sudhirji.
