Happy Shivaratri

Not everyone in the movement recognizes this holiday. In fact, I’d never heard of it until I got this card. Here is some background on how to celebrate.


These are used for meditation in the Golden Domes and the MSAE Hall of Bliss. When I was growing up I assumed the backjack was a TMO invention. But that is not the case

The Holy Tradition

See that figure in white at the bottom? That’s Maharishi. He is standing before his master, Guru Dev.


saha nāv avatu | saha nau bhunaktu |
saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai | tejasvi nāv adhītam astu | mā vidviṣāvahai |

Let us be together
Let us eat together
Let us be vital together
Let us be radiating truth, radiating the light of life
Never shall we denounce anyone
Never shall we entertain negativity
