Excellent course

by Sonia Kassab
I loved this course! It is well done and very practical. I gained a much deeper understanding of Pitru Paksha, a time which is very dear to me, as most of my relatives, including my parents, have passed away. Thank you very much!

Thank you so much! This was a wonderful education and inspiration! How beautiful to feel we are not alone and that our Ancestors are in our hearts as well as right over our shoulder - so comforting! Thank you for all the detailed explanations that allowed me to go deeper and deeper into myself while connecting with my ancestors in a very loving way!

Pitṛpakṣa - The Time of the Ancestors

by Sara Fargo
Excellent. My heart is open. This evening a group of us will go chant the Guru Gita at the foot of a redwood tree with pictures of our family and friends and our spiritual teachers. Then will be sharing a sweet dinner of Indian food, Decaf Chai and some dessert after we offer it all to the Ancestors. Have your words with us to remind us of the depth of what we are doing. Thank you so very much. Am most grateful for learning so much from this. Beautifully written...taking me deeper into my understandings!

Pitṛpakṣa - The Time of the Ancestors

by Linda Mikkelsen
Just before hearing of this course I had a strong urge (for years) to visit the gravesides of a much loved great aunt and uncle who had given me so much in my childhood. They passed 40 years ago and I was out of the country - I never visited their sites. The day before my sister and I travelled to find their gravesites (and found another dear great aunt and uncle) and cleaned the spot and offered flowers and prayers. We then travelled to our other close relatives and did the same. It left us both feeling joy. My mother and father had raised us doing this on special holidays. Then when I heard of the course I read through all the days practices to date and it has enriched and expanded my practice of honoring my ancestors. I felt the interconnectedness of all things more deeply. Thank you for this. I will hope to make this a family tradition too.
