Thank you all for attending our first meet up! It was fun, informative and interesting, to the say the least !! Hope you all enjoyed it..
It was great to see so many fellow seekers of God, who have done significant soul-searching and some fairly advanced in this path.
Please feel free to join us in Facebook for spiritual discussions, or sharing of spiritual content.
Participants expressed interest / some of the discussions were focused around:
- Form /Formless worship of God. Certain personal gods in the Hindu pantheon, like Ganesha., Shiva etc. Some expressed deep interest in worship of God as Absolute, pervading everything and everywhere!
- Rituals like Pooja etc
- Different paths to God
- Traditional (temple-based) worship of God,, why and why nots. some were pretty disappointed with temples :)
- Spiritual experiences/ miracles: At least one person narrated an incident
We also spent some decent time networking.
We also started sharing spiritual books.. The idea is to share spiritual books with others (which otherwise may be gathering dust in your shelves)..and circulate them with interested participants who will read and return by next meeting so that we can further circulate them
If you are willing to host a meeting, kindly let us know.
Next Meet up:
We are shooting for Sunday, Feb 4th..Will keep you posted. Please feel free to spread the word and invite your friends..
Thanks again for attending in spite of a somewhat chilly weather. Couple of people couldn't attend due to last minute urgent issues.
Look forward to seeing you all for the next meetup,
Bowing down to the Divine!
