PREFACE

There is no greater way to connect to the Supreme Being than through Worship and Devotion. Your life's journey would take you through many trials and tribulations and through it all, your undying faith (bhakti), sincere devotion and worship would lead you to the supreme state of bliss, happiness and oneness with God. This guide to your Sunday morning worship would serve to assist you with the most wonderful and serene acts of worship in our temples and even in your homes. Everything you do serves to cleanse your body and mind and brings your soul closer to Self Fulfilment and Self Realization which is the real purpose of your Supreme Soul (Paramatma). The Hindu Festivals Society offers you this simple guide to your Sunday morning worship. I hope it would serve you well as it takes you step by step through the preparation of your mind and physical body to your connection to the Supreme One by your acts of ablutions, offerings, songs and prayer. May your soul sing the eternal song of love, faith and devotion. Yours in the Spirit of Hindu Festivals,

Thirbhawon Seegobin President, The Hindu Festivals Society.

Aarti (Translation)

Victory to you, O Lord of the universe and master of the world. May you in an instant remove the sufferings of your devotees... 1. Those who meditate upon you reap the benefits or fruits of such worship, with the troubles of their hearts removed, fill their homes with happiness, prosperity and remove their bodily pain and afflictions. 2. Oh Lord, You are both my mother and father. Apart from you Oh Lord, there is no other person to whom I can turn. In whom else shall I seek refuge? In whom, therefore, shall I repose hope and trust? 3. You are the self complete God, the knower of the hearts of all. You are the supreme Original Master, You are the infinite and indescribable Brahman, the Lord and Master of all. 4. You are the very ocean of compassion and the sustainer of all beings. I am a fool, beset with countless negative desires. Dear Lord, please shower your grace upon me. 5. You cannot be seen through ordinary eyes, Oh Master of everyone's soul. You are filled with compassion and kindness, how then can I, a wicked sinner, come before you. 6. You are the friend of the downtrodden, the remover of pain and sorrow, you are my protector and caretaker. I surrender at your doorstep. May you please extend your hands and lift me, I seek refuge in your arms. 7. Oh Lord, please remove the imperfections and attachments of my senses and take away and destroy my sins and transgressions. Please Lord, may my faith in you and my devotion towards you ever increase and also may my service to the saints and sages increase. 8. Whatever I posess my Lord, be it my body mind or Earthly possessions, all belong to You. All this, which belongs to you, is being offered back to you. In so doing, what can I possibly lose???
