Premananda Centre News
By Dharini (Centre Coordinator) and Bhavadharini
The Sri Premananda Centre of Koszalin is located in a yoga school run by Dharini, the Centre Coordinator. The school is situated near the city centre in the highest building in town. It is very fortunate that our Centre is in a yoga school, because many different people appear here every day – most of them are interested only in the physical aspects of yoga, but some of them seek something more, a spiritual path, and we can introduce them to Swamiji and his teachings.
We celebrate each month, as usual, with an abhishekam to one of the three Centre statues or the lingam, and once a month we do small poojas for the other deities. We always start with the Guru Astotra, followed by bhajans. After the abhishekam we read a satsang and have a short exchange about it. Then we spend a nice moment sharing tea and prasadam while we discuss the satsang. The atmosphere is always very friendly. Afterwards most of the people stay to help clean the abhishekam vessels.

Celebrating Navaratri by Belgian Centre Coordinators
The idea of celebrating Navaratri in our new house grew from our last journey through India. We discussed all the steps of Navaratri with Priya and Kugha, Centre Coordinators in Belgium. They explained everything in detail, as they are experienced Navaratri celebrators here in Belgium. In the weeks before, we asked devotees who come to the Centre to inform us how and when they could help out and we had a long list of volunteers. Finally we were longing for the first day of Navaratri. The first morning we got up early to plant the seeds. The Ashram had provided us with the auspicious time to plant the seeds and we did accordingly.
