Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami was invited to Minneapolis for a first visit to the Hindu Temple of Minnesota. For the occasion, the temple created a special event on June 14th and 15th called Laksha Shiva Panchakshara Japa Yagna. The goal was to have at least 108 devotees chanting the mantra Aum Namah Shivaya 1008 times, which meant the mantra was chanted over 100,000 times (laksha). This was performed on both Friday and Saturday, along with Mahaganapati and Navagraha Homa, chants including Ganapati Atharvashirsha, Sri Rudram, Ghosha Shanti, Purushasuktam, and Sri Rudra Homa. It was a powerful experience. Satguru Bodhinatha also spoke to the devotees after each event, included in these video clips.
Prior to the temple visit, Satguru Bodhinatha visited the home of our hosts, Drs. Shashikant and Kumud Sane for satsang with the core temple devotees. This video is of the satsang.
