Feb 18: Maha Shiva Rathri 2023 A 1-Day Spiritual Retreat (Online)
Maha Shiva Rathri: a special day of ceremony, healing, & meditation, deep in the energy Shiva, the “god the father” character, the infinity of god’s nature. Shiva is THE cosmic silence, the source of all healing and protection.
UCBK is celebrating the unconditional love of the Shiva quality, on this peak day of his energy — and you’re invited to join us!
Maha Shiva Rathri, or “Shiva’s Night”, comes once a year — it is the one day of the whole year’s cycle when Shiva stops his perpetual, eternal meditation in the consciousness, taking care of all the souls in creation, to merge with his feminine counterpart, Mother Divine.
When they are in their union together, Her grip on the maya (illusions) of this world is weaker than usual — and as a result, the blessings of the infinity of god; the peace, healing, spiritual consciousness, and upliftment available to each soul, are astronomically heightened on Shiva Rathri.
It is a profound time to receive the deepest satisfaction of our spiritual desires and longings, and to have deep healing needs addressed in the flowing pure love that is Shiva.
We will be observing this powerful day with a whole series of healing, blessing events — live-streamed from UCBK’s special satellite center in East San Diego, home of the UCBK Shirdi Baba murthi (living statue), himself an embodiment of the Shiva energy, and the new, super-divine Jesus Christ murthi.
Using the Five Elements of nature in a purposed, and divine, way, we will do traditional practices (from India) to bring the energy of the Shiva/gurus as strongly as possible, to bless, heal, uplift, and support everyone who attends, either in person or online.
The day will start with a maha abishek (holy bath) of the Shirdi Baba living statue there, using the water element, plus sacred substances like rosewater, milk, ash, and more.
We will do an arathi to Baba, and a flower petal abishek… before going up to the Jesus Christ murthi and giving him a flower petal abishek + arathi, as well.
Then we will go to the fire — doing a high-powered special Shiva Rathri homa, to expand on the blessings for everyone & bring Shiva’s energy to everyone, strongly.
Finally, we will have a beautiful time singing bhajans together… to open our hearts and receive the Shiva energy in our hearts.
It will be a beautiful divine day! We are so looking forward to seeing everyone come together online in the Shiva energy, to receive the highest blessings. (If you are planning to attend in person, you are most welcome — let us know.)
Come prepared to have your heart melted, your soul uplifted, and your consciousness expanded as we share the energy, together, of this powerful day!
EVERYONE is welcome to attend from anywhere in the world — whether you’ve ever experienced anything in this spiritual tradition before, or this is your first time!
**NOTE: All sessions will be recorded — if you are unable to attend all events live, you can catch the recordings afterwards.
