#var:page_name# cover

Mother’s day always has been a big day of celebrations at Chinmaya Haridwar! We celebrate the graduation of our 12th graders on that day with a traditional Paduka Pooja conducted by them to honor and celebrate Pujya Gurudev’s birthday. Please come and participate in the festivities and bless our graduates. Most of them are “lifers” of our Balavihar, listen to their testimonies on how Balavihar education helped in their personality development. This is followed by lunch cooked and served by our men in honor of their wives and mothers, because it is Mother’s day!

The puja of the Guru’s sandals is an expression of our devotion to the Truth that Gurudev symbolized. A Guru stands on his sandals (padukas) and also on the strength of his wisdom. So traditionally the worship of guru-paduka has been an adoration of spiritual wisdom. Paduka Puja is an effective sadhana (spiritual practice) to purify our mind.

We will have lunch served by dads (because it is Mother’s day!) after Gurudev Jayanti & Graduation
