Matru & Pitru Pada Pooja
October 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Chinmaya Mission Australia invites you to the Annual Matru & Pitru Pada Puja
ABOUT MATRU / PITRU PADA PUJA
This is a beautiful tradition that instills a reverence and love within the child and awakens deep emotions and sentiments within the mother. Mother is our first God, “Matru Devo Bhava” and Father is our second God, “Pitru Devo Bhava”, through love and reverence for the mother and father the child will learn easily to extend that same love to the Supreme Lord of the whole Cosmos.
Our father and mother have done so much for us in our lives. On this Navaratri festival let’s remember them by bringing them to the Chinmaya Sannidhi Ashram and performing a Pada Pooja. Let’s show our love and respect for them.
Note: Children can be of any age (young or senior) as long as they can sit and do the pooja
Swami Shrikaranandajii will be guiding the children step by step so that they can do the pada pooja to their parents directly. We will be worshipping our parents with Pada Pooja.
