HAVAN - Full Moon Fire Ceremony
Next Havan 1 March 2018
There will be no Havan in Jan or Feb 2018

October to March havan starts at 6.45pm - 7.30pm  (April to September: 5.15pm to 6pm)

On each full moon a Havan will be conducted on the west verandah of Sivananda Ashram. All are welcome to participate in this meditative and greatly loved ritual.

In the Havan (Yajna) a fire is raised and participants' offer various articles into the fire literally and symbolically to the accompaniment of Vedic chants.

Here God is identified not only as the sacred fire and the articles used but also as the doer of the action; she or he who makes the sacrifice. All are God only. For he is infinite.

The various oblations represent the participants' cravings, longings and impurities that when offered into the fire are purified and become one with the fire which alone shines.

For most of us these external rituals are necessary as props for an internal process of meditation.
