The rainy season (July-August) brings with it the gifts of life-giving waters—a luxuriantly vibrant upsurge of plant life on Mother Earth. It is
a happy coincidence that during this season of lush green nature we celebrate three sacred Parvas in quick succession; Guru
Shravani and Janamashtmi. Of these, Guru
Purnima is of very special significance for us, the Parijans
Pariwar. In fact Guru
Gayatri have a symbiotic relationship, so much so that Adi Shankaracharya has declared – Namostu Gurvai Tasmai Gayatri
- (Guru is Gayatri
This year Guru
Purnima falls on July 21 when all of us, Gayatri
Pariwar Parijans, will reverently remember our Guru
Satta and will
rededicate ourselves to work still more resolutely and single-pointedly towards the concretization of Gurudev’s vision of uplifted and
- living in peace, harmony and love.
We are starting a series of 14–day youth leadership training camps at the Dev Sanskriti Vishwa Vidyalaya (DSVV) campus for Gayatri
Pariwar youths between the age group 15 - 26. The first camp in this series will be for a batch of 50 youths from USA, Canada and
Britain, to be held from July 14 to 27, 2005. These camps will continue to be held thereafter for the youths from metrocities in India, and
from Australia, Mauritius, South Africa and other parts of the world.
We are also planning to start a series of yoga
camps from July this year at the DSVV
Campus. Our Secondary School Affiliated to the
CBSE is also being shifted from the Shantikunj
Ashram to the DSVV
We are organizing two grand Ashvamedha Yajnas during the second half of 2005.the first one will be a 252 Kundiya Yajna to be
performed at Sydney (Australia) on October 1,2 and 3, 2005; and the second one will be a 501- Kundiya Yajna to be held at Madurai
(Tamil Nadu) on December 29–31, 2005 and January 1, 2006.
The present July–August, 2005 issue of Akhand Jyoti is being published as a special issue providing indepth, specific and authoritative
information about the intrinsic significance of Ashvamedha Yajna being organized by the Gayatri
mission since 1992.
