Poorna Kumbhamela at Santhigiri Ashram on September 20, 2011


Trivandrum, 20 September 2011:  A ‘Poorna Kumbhamela’ will be celebrated at Santhigiri Ashram, Trivandrum on Tuesday, 20th September2011. Thousands of devotees from all over India and abroad will participate in the annual Kumbhamela ceremony.

The ceremonies will start with the morning prayers at 5AM followed by special prayers, floral offering and Gurupooja at 12 noon.  The Kumbhamela procession will commence at 5 PM in the holy presence of several sanyasis. The ‘Kumbhamela’ procession is held with the accompaniment of musical bands, carrying of ornamental parasols and the chanting of Guru Mantra, making it a unique devotional event.

Thousands of devotees clad in white, will carry the ‘kumbhams’ after observing ‘vritam’ (austerities) for 11 days.

The clay-made ‘kumbha’ is the symbol of life which perishes like the mud pot with the slightest mishandling.  The perfumed medicated concoction inside the ‘kumbha’ reminds us of the need to cultivate noble thoughts and faith.

The Ashram and the surrounding areas and the paths through which the ‘Kumbhamela’ procession will move have been decorated and necessary arrangements have been made for the assemblage of the devotees.
