Shiva Rathri 2013: Coming Close To Shiva!

UCBK is starting a new chapter in the spiritual implementation of the consciousness... introducing the Coming Closer To Shiva: Shiva Rathri 2013 Process.  

"The Shiva character is a supreme master.  He's the one responsible for all the souls and the person to give the abilities to any soul.  He's the person to give the healing abilities. He's the person to wash any kind of bad fortune in your life; just simply he can wash it out.  And nonstop, from millions and millions of years until now, he keeps meditating."
                                                                               -- Sri Kaleshwar

The goal of this process is to come closer to the Shiva energy, experientially and at the consciousness level, to be able to receive the deep blessing to our souls and be able to implement the energy of Shiva more effectively in our healing and other works in the world. 

As a group, we can do amazing spiritual things together -- more than any one individual could do. 

This process is available to anyone, anywhere in the world, who would like to join it and receive the flow of energy coming from UCBK and Baba's brick, in the USA, linked with Penukonda, India, and the gurustan there.

Santa Cruz, CA, local folks will have many opportunities to come together to build, enjoy and share the energy with the whole group. 

The 41-day group energy experience will include: 

* Simple mantra diksha & meditations to connect the flow of Baba's brick to your soul
* Daily blessing/healing meditations (from UCBK & Baba's brick) to the soul
* Conference calls to support & check in
* Conference call recording links to listen later
* A culmination program on Shiva Rathri Day at UCBK (in Santa Cruz, CA)

Extra offerings, at UCBK, during this time:

* Additional, optional Five Elements series to build/share healing energy together (video-streamed)
* Pujari Training in the different pujas so community members can support the Element series
* Sponsorships of the Five Element series individually, or the whole program
* Sponsors receive distance healing transmission through the series, then high-energy offerings after the elements' series is completed
* A Shiva Energy 3-day retreat
* Short classes in the Shiva energy/character/nature/mechanisms

Coming Closer To Shiva Process

The process itself will begin with an on-site event (available for those at a distance by conference call or internet streaming) AT UCBK, on the full-moon day of January 26th.  

It will continue for the next 41 days, through March 7th, as we build the energy and go deeply into Shiva's nature, as a group.  The energy pouring from UCBK and Baba's brick and other power objects put here by Sri Kaleshwar & Mother Divine will be sent every day to participants in the program, to receive, digest, enjoy, and develop the additional energy in the soul's bank account & inner consciousness.  

Maha Shiva Rathri will be celebrated at UCBK on Saturday, March 9th.  
(Clarification: The official Indian websites say it's on the 10th, but we are 12 hours behind, here in California -- and Swami always celebrated Maha Shiva Rathri 2 days before the New Moon -- the New Moon is on the 11th of March.)

Participants in the process will have a special process to do on the Shiva Rathri day -- either in-person at UCBK or connected via video streaming, as a group. 

The cost of the process itself is $108 -- to be in the meditation group, receiving emails, phone conference calls, and the final Shiva Rathri day experience.   The deadline for registering for this process, including sending a digital photograph of yourself, is January 23rd.  

Yes!! I want to sign up for this 41-Day Process now -- my tax-deductible credit card donation reserves my place in this process: 

(Details of the process launch and other protocols will be emailed upon registration.)

Alternatively, I will call or email UCBK to work out other arrangements   Tel: 831/ 421-2972

    (Please note: although the Indian websites list March 10th as the official Shiva Rathri day, Sri Kaleshwar always celebrated Shiva Rathri two days before the New Moon -- which falls on the 11th in the US -- for the maximum high energy blessing of the Shiva Rathri energy. Because of this, and because California is 12 hours behind India, we are celebrating the highest energy of March 9th.)

Supporting The 41 Days of Shiva By Increasing The Five Elements' Energy

As part of the increasing Shiva energy, we've created a Five Elements Series of practical, experiential modules at UCBK -- in each of the five weeks of the 41 days, each element will be explored/implemented through a 3-day set of pujas and meditations, a special process and bhajans/kirtan.

We will be offering a special pujari training course at UCBK, so that anyone who would like to learn the proper way to do fire homas, abisheks, and arathis can be trained to do these ceremonies -- and then sign up to be the pujari or pujarini at each of the different pujas in the elements' series.  

Everyone is invited to enjoy these element events for a minimal donation at UCBK, as they're able -- these Five Elements events are open to the public, and anyone who wants to come share the energy -- (*plus the cost of materials in the case of the Earth element series, details in the Elements' Series section) -- we will also live-stream them through the internet, as well.  

Sponsoring The Elements' Series For Healing/Blessing to the soul

Each event series will ALSO be sponsorable -- for $50 per series -- a series of earth element flower abisheks on the brick, a series of fire homas, a series of sky meditations, a series of abisheks, and a series of bhajans -- for personal healing or for a loved one/family member.  

We will read the list of sponsors and send the energy, during each element puja or event.  Sponsors will receive applicable holy materials as prasad after the series are concluded. Sponsor info here.
